"One way of looking at States or Frequencies of Consciousness are like Key's of a Piano. Our everyday, Automating state of Consciousness is like the Lower Octaves of a Piano."
"All arrangements of matter form informational systems. The universe forms a vast informational landscape. Consciousness is like the rain falling on that landscape; in some places it channels and pools."
"That's because consciousness is like the humming of a car engine, and a good neuroscientist can diagnose operational issues of the mind just by testing and measuring."
"Our consciousness is like a pile of iron filings subjected to the influence of many magnets."
"Individual consciousness is like a particle. Collective consciousness is like a wave. The wave is feminine in nature. The particle is masculine. A wave, upon encountering a particle, causes an impulse to arise from that particle. This impulse, in turn, influences/changes the wave. This never-ending, ever-changing dance between the wave and the particle mystically mirrors and molds the experience of both each particle and the grand wave of all existence as our individual and collective experience of life unfolds in the universe.

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.
