What is the term "metamorphosis" and why we are using it as our logo for the site

“Metamorphosis” is a Greek word which means transforming something into something else. In my site “metamorphosis” is primarily identified with the universal evolutionary process where everything is changing, every single entity in the universe. Nevertheless, modern human beings pretend that they can effectively manipulate and guide this chaotic and unpredictable process through human rationality and human intelligence; aiming at protecting their artificial defenses, materialistic or otherwise, for fear of the unknown. Another aspect of “metamorphosis” that inspires me is the miracle of nature when the caterpillar is transformed into a butterfly. Human beings have passed the stage of the caterpillar, the opportunity to mature intellectually (civilization), meaning evolving in nature’s cocoon. This cocoon has broken and human beings have to fly as free creative entities in harmony with the whole of the universe. Those ones who want to maintain their artificial defenses intact (rationality, control and manipulation of nature) shall die off and perish.
