Boundaries: Is there a limit? More than one? Are different limits consistent? Extrapolation: If we can goTHIS far, can we go FARTHER? Interpolation: If two things exist in different places, does something exist between them? Intersection: Do components collide? Can one contaminate another? Surfaces: How does behavior change along different dimensions simultaneously? (combinatorial testing) Symmetry: If a behavior exists for A, does a corresponding behavior exist for B? Pattern Completion: Is a pattern apparent that has not yet been completed, or is obscured (all customary parts of a shape)? Negation: Whatever is there, might not be there, or might disappear.
