|implicit lore (n.)|
|Applies to||system functions|
Implicit lore is knowledge about the system or other headmates that cannot be accessed directly but is still somewhat present. For example, a headmate recalling implicit lore may be able to answer simple questions about the relevant information but not be able to state it explicitly. They may not be able to answer questions that make it possible to fully reconstruct or deduce the information.
This term is related to the psychological concept of implicit knowledge and memory that can be used or applied but not recalled or formulated explicitly.

If the information can be accessed partially but its origin or validity remain unknown, this may be called isolated lore.
