early sapients would flense bones looking for more meat. they would return to known places to gather or kill food. that was reiterative behaviour. at a point where the cost benefit ratio was exceeded it became preserveration.

the patient has a problem with the concepts of “resolution” and “decision”. he sees resolution as a wide angle view of an event and decision as the capture as the capture of the event. he uses the metaphor of a camera taking a picture. he can be seen adjusting zoom, aperature and shutter speed constantly. qualitatively his pictures are very good, but lacking peer feedback.
