"There's times for carrying on and then there's times for realizing when you can't carry on any longer without fixing a major problem within yourself. Carrying on with a broken psyche is like trying to drive a 20 year old, beat up car that might break down and explode any second. At best you're endangering yourself, at worse, you're endangering everyone on the freeway in your immediate vicinity. "
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.
