Psychological, neuroscientific, and linguistic evidence suggests that a mental scene is in principle cognized with a mental gaze that can take on one of three forms: embodied physical gaze, embodied mental gaze, or disembodied mental gaze. Combinations of these forms also occur. A first sketch of the embodiment-disembodiment taxonomy that emerges from this threefold distinction is presented.
