"Reification of some order intrinsic to the mind" (J.W. SUTHERLAND, 1973, p.57).
It became clearer in the recent years that there is indeed some intrinsic network organization in the brain (let us be careful with the concept of mind).
SUTHERLAND explains in this way the origin of mathematics and consider that "… a similar claim for a priori ordering of some kind may be made with respect to CHOMSKY's postulation of immanent 'deep structures"'.
Our access to reality is thus here again depending on the nature of the basic tool we must use to study it: our brain and our nervous system.
