trabrex:

The collective cognitive imperative, or belief system, a culturally agreed on expectancy or prescription which defines the particular form of a phenomenon and the roles to be acted out within that form.

An induction or formally ritualized procedure whose function is the narrowing of consciousness…

Understanding a thing is to arrive at a metaphor for that thing by substituting something more familiar to us. And the feeling of familiarity is the feeling of understanding.

—Julian Jaynes, The Origin Of Consciousness, Book I, Chapter 2 (via iapproveofyouropinion)
