representation is NOT the represented

eyes see object A, ears hear note A,olfactory things feel smell/taste signature A :
processes in the mind form a representation of A(rep-A)
eyes see something like object A, ears hear something like note A,olfactory things feel something like smell/taste signature A:
processes in the mind lookup rep-A
we conclude something like object A, something like note A,something like smell/taste signature A was actually stored in the mind
what is stored has nothing do with A
and what is stored is the same as what is used to store some other "thing"
