Re: [xmca] New Conceptual Image Example

Yes, I used almost this exact image on my PowerPoint to illustrate "Gestalt" when I did my talks on CHAT in April. (See Attached) So my microgenetic report is somewhat invalidated. I recognised it as an Escher drawing (or in his style) immediately ... so I began by presuming that the white and black figures were both birds, and only then realised that the black / white figures were birds / fishes, and then only because you asked did I notice the variation in species and finally the tortoise, so I started to think of Darwiniam themes ... and finally wondered what the pelican had in its mouth and why?

In the process of looking new meanings will emerge. How they emerge appears
to differ from person to person. I would REALLY appreciate a microgenetic
introspective report from anyone with the time. I have now collected three
examples of such, including my own and all three are different.

I sure wish I could get to ask Vygotsky and Eistenshtein to do this and
report to us about it!!
