"Antibodies are made by white blood cells called B cells, and each individual B cell is like a factory that produces a unique antibody targeted to only one substance, just like every person is a unique individual."
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.
