IDEAS/EMOTIONS AS PHYSICAL OBJECTS

{when there is no overt indication of Ideas as External Entities or Mind As Physical Space}






(* His mind wandered back to her harsh words earlier.*..) ... [NP] (..* Then HIS ANGER SKIDDED AROUND TO HIMSELF *) for wasting time thinking about the frisson between him and Sachs.
[[Text: source, p.132]]
{The anger: IDEAS/EMOTIONS AS PHYSICAL OBJECTS or IDEAS AS PERSONS OR OTHER LIVING BEINGS?
The first sentence uses MIND AS ANIMATE BEING OR LIVING BODY.}


(* IT SEEMED THAT A THOUGHT HOVERED [in Sachs's mind] . AND FLITTED AWAY.*)
[[Text: source, p.520]]
{From the context in the book, the mentioned "seeming" seems to be from the point of view of the person talking to Sachs, or of a general observer, rather than to Sachs herself, though it could be.}


He is no less dead ... (* A WHITE-COLD SPARK OF TERROR JOLTS ME.*..) Then I go limp, as (..* WHATEVER FEAR IT WAS THAT GRIPPED ME *) passes. For a fraction of a second, I knew what those words meant. [NP] I didn't want to know. (* I PUSHED THEM OUT OF SIGHT.*..) That was the (* jolt *) I experienced: (..* my memory trying TO TOSS THE EVIDENCE AWAY,*) ...
[[Text: source, p.157]]
{Mixing of different types of PHYSICAL OBJECT that the terror is: a spark, something cold, something that can grip; also the coldness is white.
NB: The words are ones written at a murder scene.
The words (in their mental manifestation) are portrayed as seen, movable physical objects.
At end of excerpt: Mixing with MIND AS ANIMATE BEING OR LIVING BODY.} }


He was experiencing a peculiarly mixed set of emotions. Horror and dismay ... A compassionate pity ... But beyond these perfectly natural reactions he was (* FIRED WITH AN ARDENT GLOW OF CURIOSITY AND INTEREST.*) (* One side of him warred with the other.*) He felt that it was abhorrent to look upon crime, especially murder, as anything more than foul and unthinkable. At the same time (* this little devil of curiosity kept on tugging at his sleeve demanding attention.*..) ... The argument was good. But (..* the little imp of curiosity was better.*)
[[Text: source, p.30]]
{NB: mixing or switching: IDEAS and EMOTIONS AS PHYSICAL OBJECTS; MIND PARTS AS PERSONS; IDEAS AS ANIMATE BEINGS}

He returned with a sigh to his sermon. For twenty minutes, blessed with great fluency, he wrote at breakneck speed and then, once again, (* HIS INSPIRATION DRIED UP *..) and (* the facts of Tregarthan's murder began to revolve like a flock of blackbirds about his head.*) [NP] ... For a long time the Vicar stared at the half-completed sheet of writing before him then, unable to stomach (..* HIS ARIDITY OF THOUGHT *) any longer, [he went out for a walk].

{NB: mixing or switching: IDEAS AS PHYSICAL OBJECTS and IDEAS AS ANIMATE BEINGS}

How, then, to explain the single shot? The Inspector couldn't. He gave up the attempt. (* IT WAS LEFT TO FLOAT LIKE AN IRRITATING SPECK IN THE BACK OF HIS MIND.*)
[[Text: source, p.152]] He is back on the island for the first time in around 20 years and trying to absorb the changes in (* A PLACE CANDIED IN HIS MIND.*)
[[Text: source]]

(* SHE GRADUALLY SETTLED DOWN INTO THAT PLACIDITY *) which ...
[[Text: source, p.47]]

(* PICK HER WAY AS CAREFULLY AS SHE MIGHT AMONG HIS FEELINGS *..) there were always some, apparently, that she hadn't dreamed (* WERE THERE AND THAT SHE ACCORDINGLY KNOCKED AGAINST.*)
[[Text: source, p.117]]

With a quick shiver (* SHE GRABBED AT HER THOUGHTS AND CAUGHT THEM *) just in time.
[[Text: source, p.136]]

For an instant she had an impulse to cry out and beat on the door, ...; but she was stopped by a sudden new wisdom. (* IT SHUDDERED DOWN ON HER HEART,*..) a wisdom she had never known or needed before, (..* AND HELD HER QUIET.*)
[[Text: source, p.146]]
{Odd view of wisdom as a physical object that can shudder, and also hold her. Possibly an animate being?}

Lucy stood ..., staring at the floor, (* DROPPING BACK INTO HER QUITE NEW SET OF ASTONISHED, PAINFUL THOUGHTS.*)
[[Text: source, p.153]]

feeling (* WEDGES OF PANIC DRIVE THEMSELVES INTO HIS STOMACH AND GROIN.*) ... and desperately (* PUSHED AWAY FROM HIM the one piece of information *) that was at the core of his terror.
[[Text: source p.275]]

[the local election result is] (* food for thought *) for all the [political] parties, but something of a (* BANQUET *) for UKIP

{extension of a conventional idiom}

... but all the time (* HER THOUGHTS WERE LIKE A FLOCK OF BIRDS CIRCLING A FOOD SOURCE, LIGHTING UPON IT BRIEFLY AND TAKING FLIGHT AGAIN. INSTEAD OF A FOOD SOURCE, THOUGH, THE FLOCK OF BIRDS CIRCLED Gina Dickens, ONLY TO FIND OUT THAT THERE WERE FAR TOO MANY PLACES FOR THEM TO LAND WITHOUT A SINGLE ONE OFFERING EITHER A DECENT FOOTHOLD OR SAFETY FROM PREDATION.*)
[[Text: source]]
{NB: Gina Dickens in the physical source scenario.}

I kept it secret. (* I WRAPPED IT UP VERY VERY TIGHTLY IN AN INVISIBLE CLOAK *..) so that (..* I couldn't see it *) ... and the whole denial experience ... put me in good stead.
[[Speech: source]]
{Mixing with COGNIZING AS SEEING}

So far, in fact, there is no clear-cut definition of "victory" in the drug war. "We've got to be careful here " one Pentagon official confides. "(* THE MILITARY IS STILL GROPING *) with their final objective." With its prestige on the line, will the military settle for the "support" role Cheney has set for it, or will a logic of escalation take hold?

(* His thoughts have assumed A SINUOUS, SNAKING QUALITY, DRIVEN BY THE SAME UNDULATING POWER that's making the space in the long room ripple, as well as the floor beneath his chair. Feelings have become in this respect LIKE LIGHT ITSELF - WAVELIKE,*..) as they used to say in his physics class. He needs to stay here and, in his usual manner, (*.. BREAK THEM DOWN INTO THEIR COMPONENTS, THE QUANTA, and find all the distal and proximal causes;*) ...
[[Text: source p.262]]
{NB: metonymy from "the space ..." and "the floor ..." to his perceptions of them. Also the analogy between those perceptions and his feelings.}

{See source document for a comment about time-ordering of memories/events.}

The fact that she had not yet seen her step-mother made no difference; she still (* felt her dislike of her RISE UP *) just as intensely as at first, and it (* BLOTTED OUT *) all her other feelings.
[[Text: source]]
{First segment: embedding within feeling. Also, example of "feel" as metaphoricity signal.}
{"BLOTTED OUT": parallel mixing with COGNIZING AS SEEING.}

Did the (* RUMBLINGS [before the destruction] REACH YOU *) in America?
{"rumblings" not meant literally in the context; refers to psychological/social effects}

Metaphorical question.
Example of partially real and co-present source domain aspect: the (physical) rumblings in the source domain are real ones.

{mixed with metonymy ENTITY FOR IDEA OF IT}

[NP] (*"DECOUPLING"*) in Focusing does not imply (*DISCONNECTION,*) however. Probably the term (*"LOOSELY COUPLED"*) would be more appropriate in describing "the Focusing attitude of (* BEING SEPARATE FROM, BUT IN CARING RELATIONSHIP TO"*) one's own emotions ...
