If one Hawaiian word (‘wiki,’ quickly) can make it into worldwide circulation, another probably has a shot. ‘Makawalu,’ transliterates to: eight (walu) eyes (maka). It is used by some Hawaiian cultural practitioners to describe multiple ways of looking at things, or different kinds of knowledge. (cf `Olelo No`eau by Mary Kawena Pukui for more sayings about knowlege.)
Links to neat science sites, blogs, and other discussions of how we learn about and represent the world are included with admission.
