The cognitive basis of pure geometry is basically unknown. Even the ‘simpler’ issue of what kind of representation of geometric object we have. In this work, we set forward a model of the representation of geometric objects at a neurological level for the case of the pure geometry of Euclid. To arrive at the model, we take into account historical aspects of practical and pure geometry together. This enables us to arrive at a coherent model of geometric objects consistent with the historical record.
