The Warhol Diet Leads To Mental Diabetes
a: Fame ~
What: "To a culture, celebrity is like sugar: fun in moderation, deadly if it's all you consume. We are letting one impulse - to vicariously enter the Big Man's entourage - over-ride the others, like the desire to enrich our minds. I have seen some of the best minds of my generation focus on nothing but discussing fame in ever more ironic ways, and they are left with a kind of intellectual diabetes."

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.
