Streeb, Dirk: D. Kirsh [2010]: Thinking with External Representations doi:10.1007/s00146-010-0272-8 - 12.03.18 12:35 (+) Positive One or more paragraphs pp. 448–449 When externalized and in the visual field, however, the very processes of vision—the way the eye moves and checks for consistency—typically drives them to see the ambiguity. When a structure is probed deeply enough, relations or interactions between parts, that were never anticipated may be easy to discover. Thus, an author may be able to discover interpretations he or she never considered.
