  17. 17. Comments from creator of website: Knowgramming. com/metaphors This website is dedicated to the proposal that metaphorical relationships drawn between any two disciplines are, in fact, universal being isomorphic mathematical derivations of the Unified Field Theory. Further, that this symmetric aspect of metaphor is extrapolatable both linearly and laterally thus may be harnessed to mathematically predict missing knowledge and invention in all other disciplines. “The metaphor reminds us that the universe is full of cousins. J.D. Cosnig
