A dynamic image produced by the associative channel of the consciousness; the allegory has multiplicative, summarizing, associative, and transforming characteristics. Allegories are fluidly transformed narratives in which many diverse elements become fixed, in which elements are multiplied by allusion, or in which an abstract concept is made concrete. Allegories are extremely situational (non‑universal) and express situations related either to the individual mind (through stories, dreams, art, mysticism, pathology, etc.) or to the collective mind (in stories, art, folklore, myth, religion, etc.).
