This paper argues that System1, (the mental processing system mainly involved in the processing of unconscious information) in contrast to System2, (mainly involved in the processing of conscious information), processes not only local information conveyed by sensory organs, but also nonlocal ones, which can only be detected beyond the detection boundaries of sensory organs. The striking similarities observed between the characteristics of System1, open up the possibility of using most of the experimental protocols for investigating the characteristics of how System1 processes local information and how it interacts with System2. They also help to investigate how System1 processes nonlocal information.
Available evidence is presented and a research agenda is outlined that, could open up fascinating questions and answers about the functioning of the human mind.
