The Metaphor Project     Our particular mission is helping progressive activists learn how to frame their messages to better reach the mainstream American public and their political representatives. We do this by teaching people how to “speak American.” That means we show people how to use the colorful metaphors, images, catch phrases, and memes that are an ongoing part of our national political dialogue. Adapting phrases like “play by the rules,” or other “American” frames for use in our own messages is a natural way to evoke the best values we all share. American phrases like these tell a familiar story about our ideal identity as Americans, one that everyone understands. Because we only use them to evoke our own ideals, progressives can “speak American” with complete integrity.     Address: POBox 892, Orinda CA 94563     Voice: (925) 254-3304     Fax: (925) 254-3304 (same as voice)     Email: metaphorproject@earthlink.net     Web: http://www.metaphorproject.org     [05 Nov 2011]

Progressive Science Institute     The philosophy of PSI is based upon the universal mechanism of evolution, “univironmental determinism” (UD), which states that whatever happens to a portion of the universe is determined by the infinite matter in motion within and without.
