    Default Life and Metaphors

    Our hearts are like paper. They can be destroyed or mended with a touch.
    "...Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
    I doubted if I should ever come back.
    I shall be telling this with a sigh
    Somewhere ages and ages hence:
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference."

    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Don't get me wrong. I know what similes and metaphors are . Similes use like or as. Metaphors don't. I am like a beautiful butterfly is a simile. I am titanium is a metaphor. No like or as. I messed up on the thread title lol.

    Music provides one of the clearest examples of a much deeper relation between mathematics and human experience.
