Take the concept of memory. We imagine memory somewhat like a container which can hold mental stuff… such a container does not really exist, but it is a useful way to visualize an aspect of our behavior. In a sense, our entire mental vocabulary is figurative or metaphorical. Even the way in which we imagine time is metaphorical: a spatial extendedness. We place events on a timeline, on which left and right are analogue to before and after. Thus, a coherent story about the ‘self’ can be told, that wonderful fiction. No easy accomplishment! It must have been a long road for humandkind to invent it.

The highest possible stage in moral culture is when we recognize that we ought to control our thoughts.
