"Adolf Hitler is like no other sorcerer-dictator in the metaphysical history of tyranny. In a secular age which rejected the ancient images of Satan, he became, in the modern imagination, not just a master sorcerer, but the source of black magic itself. He became the Devil. Horns and tail were replaced by cold, glittering eyes, a tiny black moustache, and a mesmerising voice. "
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
