“Meta”

So meta-data is data about data, which is the copyright page. And meta-knowledge is knowledge about knowledge, which is supposedly what philosophy class was supposed to be about, except it was mostly the guy saying “but we don’t *know* that this podium can’t think” and people looking at the podium.

But I still don’t know what the hell a metamorph is. Or Meta Williamson. Maybe Meta Williamson, in some ineffable way, physically indicates the properties of some other Williamson somewhere else, so that when someone who’s been to Meta Williamson one day stumbles upon this place, they will realize that Meta Williamson was nothing, only a marker leading them to the true Williamson, where they will experience a Williamsonness that mundane meta-reality has never before offered them. There will probably be a McDonalds.
