"Our mind or psyche is very much like software whereas our brain being the organ of bio-electrochemistry is like the hardware of our computers. Computer hardware is the form but it is the software that is the function."
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.
