"Don't confuse love and desire. They are two very different things. They may exist together, but desire is no substitute for love.
Desire is like a river, love is more like the ocean."
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.
