The dynamics of poetic analogy are often overlooked, however our intuition functions within this paradigm of thought. Shamanism as well as most esoteric schools of thought have used as their primary modus operandi the dynamics of poetic analogy. It is only over the past 500 years that we have forgotten this non-rational way of perceiving our world. Ironically it is through the instruments of the Western pragmatic materialistic culture that we now can weave all of these observations into a poem. This is the essence of the information revolution, the medium is the message.
