We consider the difficult problem of identification of independent causes from a mixture of them when these causes interfere with one another in a particular manner: those considered are visual inputs to a neural network system which are created by independent underlying causes which may occlude each other. The prototypical problem in this area is a mixture of horizontal and vertical bars in which each horizontal bar interferes with the representation of each vertical bar and vice versa. Previous researchers have developed artificial neural networks which can identify the individual causes; we seek to go further in that we create artificial neural networks which identify all the horizontal bars from only such a mixture. This task is a necessary precursor to the development of the concept of "horizontal" or "vertical".
