a: Categorial imperative ~
b: treating a women as a algebraic equation
What: "Theoretically, you could reach the same conclusion as a Kantian, but it seems difficult to be a Kantian when a drunk woman is trying to seduce you. Respect and concern are more likely to keep you from jumping into bed with her than the categorical imperative. In any case, her offering sex is in some sense a offer of human contact (although it may be expressed in terms of taunts about manhood) and perhaps deserve a certain reciprocity: respect and concern are a form of reciprocal human contact, of touching her (without touching her) while the categorial imperative is like treating her as if she were an algebraic equation."

METAMIA is a free database of analogy
and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search.
The subject matter can be anything.
Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged.
The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with
the stark literalism of a relational database.
Metamia is like a girdle for your muses,
a cognitive girdle.
