The media package contains software for the on-screen simulation of perceptual causality phenomena as they were first described by Albert Michotte as well as motion pictures demonstrating some of the possibilities of the software. With the software, the user may explore perceptual causality phenomena and their limiting conditions by variation of a multitude of parameters like, for instance, size and speed of the objects and their duration of contact. The motion pictures were shot from the computer screen and illustrate the most important event classes (push, pull, rebound,...) described by Michotte and their parametric variation.
