Is it a good idea or of any use to divide parts of data into sensory and mental, on the basis of their consumption-type?
1) There are 3 types of pens available in this shop.
Senses – pen, shop
Mind – types, 3, available. (My mind has processed sensory data and arrived at these inferences about it. These descriptions of reality are purely mental products.)
2) John gave a ball to Jack.
Sensory – John, Jack, ball, gave
Mental – —
3) John is the smartest man in the world.
Sensory – John, world
Mental – smartest, man
4) Giving gifts is a good tradition.
