"Denial isn't a lie. This defense mechanism is like a smoke-screen that makes it very hard for us to see what's going on in our own lives."
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.
