This creates two related but distinct concepts which continue to diverge as more analogies are built on top of analogies, all starting from birth.

Well that’s what I mean when I say metaphor. I believe we CREATE new metaphors spontaneously; in fact, I’m starting to believe it is the only way we learn _anything_.

I use the term metaphor but with it, I mean analogy, synonym, synonymous, equates to – there’s a number of ways to use it, but metaphor seems to cover a lot of bases at once.

One analogy connects to another yet there are differences. This creates two related but distinct concepts which continue to diverge as more analogies are built on top of analogies, all starting from birth.
