Catholicism As Intellectual Archeology
a: Intellectually-catholicism ~
b: an archeological excavation in Rome
What: There are numerous documentaries about the city of Rome, the eternal city. The legends says that Rome was founded by Romulus and Remus in ~ 600 BC. The city has existed, in some form, for about 2.5 millennia. Currently, when building in Rome, or anywhere else, excavations occur to secure the foundation of the new structure. It's impossible to build here without digging up ancient ruins. The more they excavate, the more they find. Some sites have 4-5 layers of old construction that has been destroyed. Intellectually this is what Catholicism is like. One layer build on another on top of another, like a Roman Archeology excavation. The link is to a British site, but the pattern is similar.

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.
