Paper Abstract

This paper discusses a simulation that was created of a model presented three years ago at this conference of a neuron as a micro machine for doing metaphor by cognitive blending. The model background is given, the difficulties of building such a model are discussed, and a description of the simulation is given based on texture synthesis structures and texture patches. These are glued together using Formal Concept Analysis. Because of this and because of the hyperbolic and Euclidean geometry intertwining and local activation, an interesting fundamental connection between analogical processing and glial and neural processing is discovered.
