On the risks of thoughts entangled in space (i.e., thoughts entangled in a metaphor or an abstract notion used to describe concrete facts, happenings, or events):

… all of us, grave or light, get our thoughts entangled in metaphors, and act fatally on the strength of them.[1]

George Eliot, Middlemarch.

Capita a ognuno di noi, sul serio o per scherzo, scoprire che i nostri  pensieri restano ingarbugliati nelle metafore e che in base a queste prendiamo decisioni fatali.
