Voronoi cells

Example of Voronoi cells associated with sensory+motivational stored contexts, which tile the available space. See Expanding room example for more details.
See wikipedia page on Voronoi cells for details. The relevance here is that a given sensory+motivational stored context acts like the 'seed' in a Voronoi diagram, spreading out over a larger set of sensory+motivational states (i.e. a larger Voronoi cell) if there are no nearby 'competing' stored contexts.
