" A wilfully ignorant person will choose to believe that the word exists without a designer. Evolutionary mechanisms are like meta-programming. The evolutionary mechanisms are understood and well studied. What it shows is an array of mechanisms that work to adapt and change a creature in some direction. This is a amazing capability that is akin to meta-level programming and dynamic systems. Its the a-priori elegant design that allows this kind of dynamism and to use this to survive and specialise."
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.
