The aim of this study is to offer a new model for the concept of immersion based on the process of perception in humans. The motivation behind the study is that although the concept of immersion points to an important experience both in various media and daily life, current approaches to the concept do not provide an analytical framework needed for understanding it. This study offers a cognitive and parameter based model which is based on the perception theory put forward by Henri Bergson in his book Matter and Memory. The model makes possible the analysis of the concept of immersion in terms of various cognitive and physical factors.
