"As Harzem (2004) writes, "now behaviorism is like a cube of sugar dissolved in tea; it has no major, distinct existence but it is everywhere"
"The humanist theorist Maslow said that behaviorism is like exploring a continent with a microscope."
"Behaviorism is like a guide dog. A guide dog is born to be just like any other dog, but through conditioning, the correct behaviors such as obeying traffic lights and leading a blind person across a road, can be acquired"
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.
