  15. 15. metaphors“Metaphor systematically disorganizes the common senseof things – jumbling together the abstract with theconcrete, the physical with the psychological, the likewith the unlike – and reorganizes it into uncommoncombinations.” (Geary, 2012, 2)“It is easy enough to label a specific emotion, such asgrief, fear, pride or happiness. It is much harder to conveythe actual qualitative experience of that emotion. Butmetaphorical language can describe the indescribable.”(Geary, 2012, 211)

  32. 32. “At last there is a realisation that information is not enough.There is a real need for thinking, especially the creativethinking involved in looking at things in different ways andalso the design thinking needed to turn problems intoopportunities.Analysis and judgement are as important as ever but notenough. Creative thinking is not a luxury but a real need indifficult times. This means serious creativity and not justmessing around and hoping an idea will emerge.”Edward de Bono, the father of lateral thinking
