"If I feel an explosive attraction to someone I step back and observe because that explosive love is like a sleeping pill. It just sucks you in, and you can't see what is."
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.
