Charting Two: Flame is the first metaphor

Flame is one of the oldest metaphor; if not the first. The word "flame" in definition is metaphoric in itself. We alluded this word with passion, love and/or faith in god. These are all meta-ideals of ourselves; therefore, metaphorically, we are that flame.

In my reflections and meditation of this metaphor, "the flame," one often allude to the light; to see darkness that surround it and/or shed light on the matter. I have found this not to be true! It is not the dark the flame want to seek and fill with light, rather the flame want to fill the space with the warmth that radiates, even if light cannot be found.

I see so i can feel! Feeling is still the first purpose of light; or in this case, feeling of warmth from the flame.
