"A gap year is like the gap between two rungs of a ladder - not necessarily your career ladder but perhaps your "life ladder". A chance to see new places, experience new cultures or gain new experiences on the labour market. Perhaps you want to change the world with your projects, get to know great masterminds or pioneers, learn new languages or tank up on new ideas and motivation."
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.
