The purpose of a Metaphor Bridge is to communicate commonly held knowledge in an uncommon manner so that by the time the "reader" passes over the bridge they will be closer to "owning" that which they already know and posses. Reality, after all, is merely a group consensus. We give something a "name", and as a culture, we agree on that symbolic name, and so…it IS valued.
