Logical Metaphors


    Logical Metaphors

    Metaphors are finding commonalities between different forms of existence; paralleling two mutually exclusive forms using linguistic units and paring their characteristics. An example is attributing the glow of the “sun,” to someone’s “glittering smile;” hence a word like “dog;” “he ate like a dog,” “man is a dog,” “stop acting like a dog,” “that’s my dog,” “what’s up big dawg,” are innumerable metaphors with myriad of nonliteral variants. “Dawg,” is a nonstandard homophone, where the pronunciations are identical with different spellings. The efficacy of Google’s algorithm to account for these extended nonliteral linguistic units are paramount to improve the quality of keyword searches.

    Analogies are synonymous to metaphors because they’re both predicated on the parallels between different forms of existence, but they’re mutually exclusive in their parity. Analogies parallel the relationships between different elements by comparisons of their internal structures; while metaphors reference one concept with another in terms of their characteristics. Here are the distinctions; “the brain is like a computer;” the comparisons between the brain and a computer share similar characteristics, hence its metaphorical. Analogies extends the relationship by paralleling the internal structures of the brain, in terms of “neurons firing between synapses,” and a “computer processing power.”


    In preceding chapters we explored logical metaphors and it’s cross-platforming implications on factuality; exploring the fallacy in a premise that derived from arbitrary thought processes, it not only shows a pervasive form of irrationality, but the faultiness of a non-applicable metaphor. These ideas are independent in nature and not metaphorically implied by default; for example the relativity of the coin and the paradox of it being both randomly intermittent and a pattern of predictability, and ofcourse the relativistic aspect of the coin determining it’s contrasting fate.
