"Macbeth's ambition is like a domino that will never cease its momentum."
"Ambition is like water. Humans need it to live but too little will weaken and kill you. Conversely, too much and you'll drown."
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.
