1.) A life lesson reduced to a symbol. 2.) A complete collection of such symbols. Throughout life we learn lessons. When we reflect on any one lesson we can create a mental picture of it and reduce it to a symbol.

The theory behind The Metaglyph is to reduce one's life lessons to an ordered collection of symbols for the purpose of clarity.
The lesson: Man who squeeze lemon get sour juice. The lesson here is not to be surprised when things get overly ugly when we press an issue with a nasty person.

The metaglyph might be as simple as a large circle denoting the lemon above a small circle denoting a lemon drop.
