Though we may think information on abstract domains is about the real world, we have conscious access only to the projected world. Reality is out there, but our internal representations are inescapably mediated by the we use and accept. Metaphors have a tendency to form ideological "regimes of truth" - to create models of reality that are fatally reductionist - too simple or too partial.


[...] Metaphors are usually influential because they persuade us of certain ways of the viewing the world. I hold the belief that a better understanding of language is the basis of creating a better society. The stance that I argue is a critical one in which people are educated so that they are able to analyse and evaluate the ideas offered to them by those who aspire to positions of power.
