The Ego and Time-Moving Metaphor

As I’ve said before, the primary (if not the only) real experimental evidence for conceptual metaphor theory — the theory that abstract concepts are structured by more concrete (i.e., closer to sensory/perceptual) concepts — comes from one domain: time. Time, according to conceptual metaphor theory, is structured primarily through spatial metaphors. In English, there are two dominant spatial metaphors: the ego-moving metaphor, in which we are moving toward the future (e.g., "I’m coming up on my 30th birthday"), and the time-moving metaphor, in which we are stationary while time moves towards us (e.g., "My 30th birthday is fast approaching").

Or… "that ninja is fast approaching"… wait, that’s not metaphorical.

In an attempt to curb public urination in many cities worldwide, localities are considering installation of the Urilift, a hydraulically operated urinal that can be concealed underground during the day, and lifted out at night or during large public gatherings. Watch a video here.

Gazprom

gazprom one

So here are the projects of Gazprom main corporate building in St. Petersburg (they have already a complex in Moscow). People of St. Petersburg demand to stop this projects in coming to life because they want to preserve [the] "cultural and architectural unity of the city." But if Gazprom wants something nobody can say something to [about] it.
