genetic recombination


A Shuffled Piano Board....

a: Genetic recombination ~
b: playing keys on a (genetic) piano

What: "Recombination is analogous to playing keys on a (genetic) piano : the same 88 keys or notes of a piano can be played, but different music is heard each time. Merely playing a different combination of keys (i.e. merely playing a different song) on the (genetic) piano cannot account for the origin of the piano in the first place."

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.
