Since information flows through all perceptual organs, uniform processing is to be assumed only on the lowest level of symbols. Examples of cognition are perception, learning, speech recognition, problem solving. Cognitions can run unconsciously.

Perler I 211
Cognition/Content/Millikan: it would be inappropriate to translate the contents of the cognitions of living beings into German that cannot distinguish between indicative and imperative modes, or content without subject predicate structure, or without possibility of negation.

It should also be possible to contradict a representation "Here is now a fly": "Here is now no fly". Or "Tuesday last week, there was a fish here".
