We don’t see the world directly. We perceive it through frameworks of ideas and beliefs, which act as filters on what we perceive and how we perceive it. Some of these ideas enter our consciousness so deeply that we’re not even aware of them. They strike us as simple common sense. They often show up, though, in the metaphors and images we use to think about ourselves and about the world around us.
