265 / Metaphor

If we know reality by "representation" only, and never directly, then metaphor is our route to knowledge.

By "legislation," "dreaming," and "storytelling," we create our human world. Those are, of course, the metaphors we use to try to understand. The apple of our knowledge is what has put us out from Paradise.

"I would be tickled by the rub that is," says Dylan Thomas. "Man, be my metaphor."
