Grazie molte Mr. Gerald Giampa.
I am in love with Birgit.
She sent me this picture,
it was taken somewhere near Trieste
but I have not been there.
She likes white horses.
To be in-topic, look,
there are two letters :-)
Best,

> So let us compare this to a wine glass.

Or to wine itself. Is its appreciation increased by drinking faster?

Or to the vines themselves. Is their appreciation increased by grinding them down, creating a suspension solution in olive oil, and chugging it down faster?

Metaphors are fine for kicks, not actual analytical thought.

“Does Methedrine Reading” [ http://www.bankhead.net/BoozeAndDrugs/Drugs/methedrine.html } have anything to do with thought? Or is it just a rush!

Speaking of “kicks”. Most of which turn out to be merely “passing fads”.

Unless they are “metaphors” which are pure analytical thought. Metaphors are the language of mathematics.

“Is its appreciation increased by drinking faster?”

[if the wine is good], that is like to enjoy a well designed
page trimmed on the text grid, with no borders.

All the science founded by Charles Sanders Pierce
[http://www.peirce.org/] I’d say is based on Metaphors.
And so Socrate used to pissed off people.
You can recall what was written on the door
of the University established by Platone, something like
“Who doesn’t know Math cannot get in”.
“Platone” is itself kind of metaphor: his parents called
him Aristo, but his physical education teacher gave him
the pet name of “Platone,” which means “large, ample.”

You could say that language itself is a kind of metaphor, or to put it another way, that metaphor is essence of the sign.
