"..."priming" and thinking about affect both pattern-recognition and perceptual interpretation".

cf the Availability Heuristic -- "judgments concerning the likelihood or relative frequency of events or objects" are made according to the 'availability' of such events and objects to memory, perception and imagination.
Contagion: "...the evocation of perceptual and evaluative schemata is relatively indifferent to whether the evocation occurs as a result of something in the ambient environment, something in memory, or something brought to mind merely as a result of imaginative rehearsal. In all these cases, the consequent availability of the object, event, or schema plays a central role in subsequent attention, perception, and even reasoning."
"imagination requires a sort of participation that mere hypothetical reasoning does not."
Dealing with imaginative contagion: "cases where merely imagining or pretending that P has effects that we would expect only perceiving or believing that P to have."
"Imaginative contagion arises because certain features of our mental architecture are source-indifferent, in the sense that they process internally and externally generated content in similar ways."

Internally generated content is marked by pretense and image as opposed to belief and perception re externally generated content.
