Weiskopf on Cognitive Systems 4

When the Terminator retrieves information from memory, it appears as text in his visual field. Presumably this text is read by him and used to guide his murderous actions. But this is a purely internal process, and it is plausibly cognitive. (Weiskopf, 2010)
I don't find it that plausible.  To me, this is just Andy's Martian with the bitmap "mental" image again.
