"Breaking free is like pulling the splinter out. Eventually the pain goes away, and you don't need the pills anymore. The hole it left will heal, slowly but surely. But for a good long while, its effects will be felt."
"What do you do when you feel stuck? When you're trapped inside your mind and feel there is nowhere to go? When every attempt you make at breaking free is like bumping into wall? When everything you want to say, write, paint, draw, snap a picture of seems muddled, unfocused and uncertain?"
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.
