    • The role of metaphor
    • “Mankind evolved in a world of space andtime. Our memories evolved to record eventsthat transpire in space and time. Modernattempts to externalise and enlarge thatmemory should not, and probably need not,neglect its spatiotemporal dimensions.”— George A. Miller
    • “Our concepts structure what we perceive,how we get around in the world, and how werelate to other people. Our conceptual systemthus plays a central role in defining oureveryday realities. If we are right in suggestingthat our conceptual system is largelymetaphorical, then the way we think, what weexperience, and what we do every day is verymuch a matter of metaphor.”— George Lakoff and Mark Johnson
