#161 Metaphors are learned when two experiences occur at once   cross-domain correlations     6 years ago (owner) Document
"Metaphors are learned when two experiences occur at once. If a metaphorical link would result in a contradiction in the target domain, it will not be learned. Neurally, contradictions are mutual inhibitions. Any would-be link that would lead to a contradiction with the inherent structure of the target domain will be inhibited; thus it will never be learned." (#60 4201)
