We call a sequence of changes in a Signal a Pattern.  When we create a Behavior Specification (test), we create the Expected Behavior Patterns.  When we run a test, we measure the Actual Behavior Patterns.  The algorithm for judging pass/fail looks for a match between the expected pattern and the actual pattern.  We use the DataBlock to define Patterns that a Signal can exhibit. The DataBlock is at the center of Pattern Matching.
