Descriptive retrieval, arising from what happens in the real world independent of the cognition or actions of the agents of the process, exists at two levels: at the local level of putting parts into a whole, the abstraction retrieved is at the same scale as the events that make up the process; at the upper level of the whole gestalt, it is at a higher level than the individual events that make the form, and somehow co-ordinates all of these separate actions into a single scheme. It is this higher order co-ordination that we can think of as a kind of synchronisation, since over and above the consistency in the local rule which put the system together there is a clear ‘all at once’ quality to how we read the system overall.
