"The aristocracy is like a gang of helpless infants without its serving staff. The barrier that keeps the affluent trapped in their mansion's most frivolous room mirrors the way wealth can isolate a person from the "real" world outside and the common people who occupy it."

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.
