    The author suggests that the intangible characteristics of computer graphics bear some resemblance to the brain's ability to construct mental images, as outlined by veteran researcher Stephen M. Kosslyn. An analogy might also be drawn with the "Imaginal World" of the Sufis, as described by Henri Corbin, which exists in a space of its own. As computer graphics have emerged as an artistic medium, one may consider how this internalized ability influences the artist's response to the computer, especially as new display technologies emerge.
