What happens within our thoughts and feelings as we view a photograph by Henri Cartier-Bresson of an aged man entering a cab, Vermeer's Head of a Young Girl, or Dali's Premonition of Civil War?  How do we derive meanings, ideas and emotions from a portrait of Anne Frank, or to an arresting image of an atomic diffraction pattern made with an electron microscope?
An event sets a limit on perceived experience.  It enables us to think about the contents of the experience as a happening selected out of the profusion of sense presentation. Events have particulars such as forms, colors, sounds and tastes that we process into objects, feelings and ideas. While an event is a perceptual demarcation of entities, the content and meaning of these entities stems from a synthesis of feelings and ideas that we process into various scenarios of meaning. The way in which the contents and meanings of an event become representations in the mind, and how these features maintain self-continuity and pass into other states, has increasingly received scientific and philosophic study, which can inform us as we reflect on our everyday experiences.
