a: Educated individual ~
b: a tiny pebble thrown into a sea of ignorance
What: "Those countries in the world making the greatest economic advances are those countries which provide the highest level of education to the lar- gest number of people. And for social purposes: An educated individual is like a tiny pebble thrown into a sea of ignorance; the ripple effect changes family, friends, nations, and eventually the world. Formal, institutionalized education is the most practical method to pass knowledge along in a highly complex society. "

a: educated individual ~
b: a spring, with its internal sources of water
"In an educated organization, learning becomes a renewable resource. An educated individual is like a spring, with its internal sources of water. As a spring replenishes itself when water is withdrawn, so educated individuals replenish their learning when existing knowledge has served its purpose."

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.
