When you are done sewing your clothing you can drop it on the slide it goes away. A free ribosome is like sewing in the middle of the play ground. That which you are sewing just hangs around that area.
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.
