"Blood flow is like the life force of our bodies, and the healing process really takes off only when the ankle receives proper blood flow."
"Don't think of blood flow like a single loop from arteries to veins. Think of it like a ladder where it flows up one side, across the rungs, then down the other side. If you cut off the top few feet of the ladder, you still have the rest of the rungs."
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.
