Analogy: relation, resemblance of something with something else.

By analogy: according to the relations between things; to reason by analogy. In mediation, the analogy can be used to reformulate, "to say differently". It is a technique to diversify the language: how to forward a message while diversifying it as much as possible in order to be understood?

There are 4 types of language, which can be grouped in a table, from the 4 natural elements: water, earth, air and fire.

  • Language of water: to be submerged, to sink, to be flooded...
  • Language of earth: to be bogged down, to sink, to bury...
  • Language of the air: to asphyxiate, to suffocate, to choke, cannot breathe...
  • Language of fire: to explode, to burn...
