The process involving a set of chemical reactions that modifies a molecule into another for storage, or for immediate use in another reaction or as a by product.
metabolism is used as a metaphor for psychological functioning. People grow through biting off an appropriate-sized piece (be this food or ideas or relationships), chewing it (considering), and discovering whether it is nourishing or toxic
As one discovers each moment that he experiences…
conscious “gestalts” (stimuli, senses far & close, emotional response that together form temporal “phenomena”) form out of the unconscious background.
Assessing these moments, is a matter of deciding what bits and pieces are “swallowed” (and nourishing) and what rejected
This happens at a metaphorical boundary between differences known as “Contact“. In this case Contact is between the subject -and- what-he-is-not, at that moment.
Metabolism at contact boundary is holistic body/mind/environment experiential adventure.
