What if we could diagrammatically chart out the map of feeling and emotion?

With the first premise, how can we manipulate metaphors and symbolism for manifesting something we desire or wish to become? I think to an extent, religious practices and the whole new age enterprise is related to this. A meta-engineering of metaphor-portals.

Via the concept of phenomenology, in directing the intentionality of thought towards another object, could there be a shared mental space where the Ego is decentered?
