        ... This is "because" SOURCE separation precedes detection,
        i.e., you can NOT "detect" that which is not already available as
        being --- distinct-from --- an environment !
        ... Whereas, detection precedes identification.
        ... Identification is simply a higher level of "detection" in which
        learned patterns vie for best-match among the dissimilar and
        the similar ... identification is best modelled (today's technology)
        as a self-organized neural map.
