"The clotting cascade is like learning to dance,Factor VIII to X like a great romance.So many steps to learn and recall, Good thing your body has them all."
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.
