“Kenneth, some time ago you turned me onto the idea of seeing the power of metaphor in everyday language. We take our ability for metaphor so much for granted that we don’t even notice it most of the time it’s exercised. But now I can’t help but try to “catch it” in all of its various facets. I think I read recently that we even have special neural hardware designed for processing it. So thanks for the tip.” zl
You’re welcome man. Yeah, it’s so weird for me: Once I could “see” them, I couldn’t stop seeing them everywhere. Once you see the metaphors and start to detangle them, it’s like getting a superpower. Strangest thing.
