"Logic is built on multiple modes of logic. Two of the most popular are inductive and deductive. Deductive reasoning is like "funnel" logic. A=B, B=C, so A=C. Although these arguments are not always true-sometimes the premises of an argument don't accurately reflect reality-a properly formed deductive argument is always logically sound."
"inductive reasoning is much like an artistic painter who combines various colors together to form a painting. Deductive reasoning is like a sculptor removing material until the
artist reveals what she wishes to portra."
"Deductive reasoning is like a laser beam, it concentrates its power in a single point which is fully illuminated...but it leaves anything outside that point in the dark. Deductive reasoning is only applicable to a very narrow area outside of which is useless. There are aspects of reality that deductive reasoning cannot capture, namely, the events happening in the subatomic world of quantum mechanics."
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.
