A Position. Of Metaphor. Of Experience.

Metaphor is transference—of the unconditioned present to the contents of memory, of world to self and self to world, of words among contexts, etc. It is the interpretive mode that makes experience possible.

Not a mere consequence of the ambiguities of word and world, metaphor is rather the primary habit of thinking that creates all words and reveals all worlds.
