Forms/conceptual domains/Gärdenfors: in a conceptual domain represented as a two-dimensional coordinate system, regions can be represented simply. In this way shapes and patterns can be juxtaposed. E.g. rectangles, depending on whether they are higher (vertically extended) or square or wider than high, are represented in different regions of the domain. There is even isomorphism between the coordinate system and the space of these rectangles. E.g. squares are found along the line x = y.
Configurations/patterns/Gärdenfors: can then be defined as correlations of higher order in a concept space.
