We solve easy problems in routine ways, scarcely thinking about how we accomplish these—but when our usual methods don't work, we start to "reflect" on what went wrong and find ourselves to be switching around in a network of "models," each of which purports to represent some facet or aspect of ourselves, so that we end representing ourselves with a loosely connected collection of images, models, and anecdotes. Still, if this is how one represents one's Self, there is nothing special about this—because that's how we represent everything else. Thus, when you think about a telephone, you keep switching among different views of its appearance, its physical structure, and the feelings you have when you use it, and so forth, as though exploring the facets of a. panalogy.
