I read you posting with interest...the interest being a wondering what your posting had to do with the "theory" of Gestalt? Perhaps you assumed your reader shared your understanding of the "theory"? Or, perhaps you believe the "theory" is so precise, it does not need elaboration? But, precise as you may see it... I cannot find the "theory" in your post. Are you saying that the operational Gestalt of which anyone can hold a cognitive "theory" does not lend itself to cognitive discussion? It that I would agree...but do you know what I'm agreeing to? Strange how words cannot describe what abstract "theory" implies.
