Zubaz- similar, maybe not the same (maybe so though?) I see the tool metaphor as being descriptive of discussions of tactics, how we deal with a problem (if you have a screw that sticks out, but you only know hammers, you hammer the screw, even though a phillip's screwdriver might better do the job, or might not if it is a slot-head screw). I see the box as being bigger than choices of tactics, being more about limiting our perceptions, and what questions we even ask.
also, yes to no more up-votes, let me live in teenage Slayer fandom to perpetuity! :)
