It is worth dwelling for a moment on these remarkable facts of association and their essential natures. Most associations that might interest us so far are based on simultaneity of impressions. Admittedly there is no explanation, yet it is undeniable that memory images of simultaneously received sensory impressions remain associated, whether the interaction was brought about by a deeper connection or the loosest random occurrence. However, random occurrences will not be so easily repeated, so their association is not as firm as that for clearly related events.

The easiest way to do this is to return to our starting point, the example of speech. When a patient is silent and we would expect him or her to speak, we can interpret this symptom as a circumscribed form of akinesia restricted to speech. If the presenting symptom is an urge to talk, then by the same token this is a circumscribed form of hyperkinesia. If, on the other hand, his or her response is nonsensical speech, we could rightly regard this as a symptom of parakinesia. Here, however, one would need a more detailed account for each of these, because misunderstanding is to be expected.
