"Biomass energy is like a solar battery. Through the process of photosynthesis, the earth's hydrocarbon economy is constantly banking the sun's energy as biomass while fixing atmospheric carbon and releasing oxygen."
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.
