From our most early experiences with reality, we start to recognize patterns in the surrounding environment. This allows us as human beings to be aware of the different objects that we are related to. The scope of pattern recognition is broad since it is observed at different levels in the world. This awareness occurs for a cell that divides and specializes itself and for an expert standing in front of a painting trying to make a distinction between the pure object and the pure subject of that object.
