"After all, the ear canal is like a tunnel that needs to be open for you to hear properly"
A water canal channels water. An ear canal channels sound.
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.
