Magnetic Field Metaphor

Magnetic field lines of our souls

The soul lays the face round itself, as well as the magnet arranges his iron-venal filings round itself . And thus it does the soul also with the clothes, or the apartment-equipment, or the friends whom one invites.

G.C. Lichtenberg:
Die Seele legt, so wie der Magnet den Feilstaub, so das Gesicht um sich herum.

Man könnte hinzufügen:
Die Seele legt das Gesicht um sich herum, so wie der Magnet seine Eisen-Feilspäne um sich herum anordnet. Und so tut es die Seele auch mit der Kleidung, der Wohnungs-Einrichtung, den Freunden, die man einlädt.

“The direction of magnetic field lines represented by the alignment of iron filings sprinkled on paper …” (wikipedia)
frizz-translation of the G.C. Lichtenberg (1742-1799) quotation:
The soul lays, as well as the magnet according to the filings, the face, the mimicry round itself.

One could add:
The soul lays the face round itself, as well as the magnet arranges his iron-venal filings round itself . And thus it does the soul also with the clothes, or the apartment-equipment, or the friends whom one invites.
