PERCEPTUAL SYNTHESIS

1. the compilation of experience from all the senses to establish insight of the exterior world and one's encounters with it. This comprises the removal of unnecessary data with respect to likenesses and variations. 2. with regard to auditory perception, a sensation wherein persons interpret missing noises or dim noises whenever the gap cultivated by them is filled with white noise.

PERCEPTUAL SYNTHESIS: "Perceptual synthesis occurs often without any direct awareness by the individual."
