"his term's module - Biological Psychology - is really, really HARD. Man, it is actual hardcore science. I'm going to use a cheese analogy. Cognitive Psychology was like Manchego. Slightly unusual flavour but it was similar enough to the mild cheddar stylings of my humanities comfort blanket to not be too terrifying. Biological Psychology is like Cornish Stilton. It seems benign to start with but if you sample it near enough to bedtime you will have some seriously freaky dreams* and still smell of it in the morning. I even have labelled diagrams of the limbic system on the wall of the study. "
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.
