Concurrently while receiving and processing sensory data as mentioned in the previous topic, LB searches for same or similar sensory data stored in its sensory database. A sensory database is where LB stores sensory information from interactions it has received in the past. All entries in the sensory database are linked to information related to them in the B-ROM, which were stored and updated by VP from the same or similar interactions in the past (more information about how this works is explained under title Recognizing a Person).
To decode (i.e. perceive) contents of the interaction, VP traverses and assigns consciousness to surrounding and/or associated areas involved in the interaction. An analogy to the same is when you explore shape of an object using fingers with your eyes closed.
