"You could also say a Centrosome is like Platform 9.75 :)...I would probably call the Peroxisome the Azkaban of the cell since it specifcally breaks down H2O2 and other toxins in the cell, and I would say the Lysosome is more like the Death Eaters- it breaks everything down."
"the centrosome is like the center of a spider's web and the microtubules are the threads coming out of it"
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.
