"The functioning of your neurology is like riding on the "mobius loop" pictured above, which can only continually wind back into itself"
"I think that the complexity of the human brain for Neurology is like the speed of light for Physics: it is a hard limit that can be approached more and more, but can never really be reached. This is the barrier that I see when it comes into developing human-like machines. In other words, the creation cannot be bigger than its creator."
"Neurology is like taking very detailed static photographs, at enormous magnification, of highly specific parts of the brain. Cognitive science is more like an infra-red image showing the connections between different parts of the brain, and some of these images have movement - they're like short video clips."
"Neurology is like the new archaeology of the soul. Just as a new archaeological find in the Holy Land can buttress our faith and call attention to passages long forgotten, so scientific studies of the human brain can be used by God to awaken us to believe in truths God wrote centuries ago."
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.
