Quasi-pictorial images are adequate
An adequate theory of mental activity can be formed without assuming an underlying proposition or deep structure. Quasi-pictorial images can do the same work as symbolic descriptions.
  • Knowledge can be gleaned from images in the same way that can be gleaned from sense perceptions.
  • Representations using images may require less storage and may be more efficient than those that use propositions.

Stephen Kosslyn and James Pomerantz (1977).
