cell of systems biology
"Although we can sometimes mistake a TV show for a true representation of human behavior, we generally agree there is much more to life than what we see on Temptation Island or Big Brother. Systems biology can only work if we relate back to the cell, organism, or ecosystem. It is the behavior of our models that is complex, not necessarily the behavior of the cell."
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.
