As the sensorimotor correspondences bring 2 dynamics together, so the thought has this character. In a broad sense, all thought is metaphorical. As the S-M system forms a tangible universe out of 2 energy flows, so in thought we force active contents (?) together into a narrative. Sometimes this mashup produces words (which play the parts of objects(?)), sometimes not.
