Perception

It may be helpful to have The Model of the Mind available whilst you read this definition.

The Perception activity produces Perceptions and Perceptions are a combined record of everything that has happened to things including us.  It is a log of activity and includes not just the input from the Senses but any Emotions as well. 

Without making it too complex every Function of each Aggregate that produces an output is used to create Perceptions.

The process itself is theoretically relatively simple because it is just a logging activity, although there is the added complexity of correct sequencing as the composite picture is built. 

Analogously it is like the sort of logging activity that takes place when we execute a program like Word.  We can see the effects of this when we apply the undo and redo button in Word. Because this log of activity has been kept we can both undo and redo a whole sequence of actions.
