"Sexual selection, however, can develop some pretty weird things!!! Blueness of bluejays, redness of cardinals, plumage of the peacock.....breasts!!!!! YAY Sexual selection! I have heard it said that sexual selection is like the world of high fashion.... arbitrary, unpredictable etc.... Sexual selection is maybe the strangest of the pressures."
"At best, sexual selection is like using Photoshop to tweak an already-existing picture."
"In the end, it will be obvious that Sexual Selection is like a wedge, maintaining the achieved evolution and encapsulating the entropy of Natural Selection inside the organism's layer."
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.
