historical diffusion


Ideas Diffuse Like Molecules

a: Historical diffusion ~
b: game of telephone

What: "I made a comparison in class about how historical diffusion is like a game of telephone. However, Mr. Moran made a good point that historical diffusion is not nearly as linear and concentrated as a game of telephone where a word or phrase is simply passed from person to person. To think of historical diffusion more simply, I like to think of it as people walking around freely in a given area, from a historical aspect the area generally starts off as regions of a country, with only a few people knowing something or believing some religious idea"

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.
