"In my own view, reducing the mind to brain physiology is like reducing the art of Van Gogh to a chemical analysis of his paints. A phenomenon experienced subjectively does not thereby become unreal."
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.
