O ^ l e oicr -{-o, etr illustratesthat imagery is compatiblewith a production system architecture and that the distinct characterof imagery corresponds to distinct processesthat operateon images in the production system. It predicts the basic rotation result and is consistentwith the qualitative eye movement data of Just and Carpenter (1976). The theory makes an interesting set of predictions about the relationship between complexity and rate of rotation. Because complexity is correlatedwith the number of subparts,complexity will have an effect on iudgment time.
