    Wade, in cases where we need to go in someone's head ( serial killers) it is relevant to the obsever what happened in the brain of the performer ! Profilers need in a sense to ' anticipate ' in the memetic processes of the murderer. Psychologists do it all the time ! They base their next step on what is consciously or unconsciously ' said ' to them. They interpretate what is said and Not- said.
