"Completion of a maneuver to perfection lifts the spirit to great heights. Nailing that crosswind landing is like a spiritual high-five, and the peaceful sunset patrol produces a terrific sense of self-exaltation. When one's inner self is in such a healthy state, it too has no room for destructive emotions."
Some very good musings are link...
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.
