This article considers the novel approach for epistemological interpretation of biomimetics or bionics and biosimilarity in different abiogenetic works with the terminological correction for elimination of the reifications (concretisms, hypostatizations), simplified metaphors and the results of metonymy. In the last part of this article one can see the analysis of the mistakes and problems of complex abiogenetic or supramolecular evolution projects within the aspects of the Conway law and the social organization of science and publishing sphere in subjective postmodern capitalistic conditions.
Keywords metaphor  reification  concretism  hypostatization  hypostatization  Conway law  the fallacy of misplaced concreteness   allegory  social organization of science  postmodern capitalism
