"I don't think it matters how much you have, flat space is like a magnet for stuff. I have lots of shelving and lots of flat surfaces, yet when I need to use a flat surface I can't find any to actually use. The tanker desks are neat, but they are awkward at best. I took mine apart and stacked the two side drawers on top of each other, made a pretty neat cabinet that was way more useful than the desk."
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.
