Geometric Cognition

Since geometry is the measurement of matter and cognition deals with how we acquire knowledge about said matter, geometric cognition can be understood as the processing of the symbols and metaphors, our mind creates for that matter: conscious and unconscious processes that rely on geometric models, to accumulate experience and knowledge, through perceiving, recognizing, conceiving, and reasoning of data in the framework of a cognitive geometry.
