This chapter analyzes metaphor in the Platonic context where the Good is supreme and not Being. It explains that Being has truth, and not existence, as its primary sense. It analyzes other philosophers' view on Being and existence, and suggests that Being may be identified with existence and this is consistent with Plato's concept of becoming, the primordial diversification of the matrix. With this, it is possible to associate the economics of dwelling with Plato's chora.

Keywords:   metaphor, Plato, Being, existence, the Good, chora
