"Having a genetic disorder is like living in a pair of jeans that don't fit. I am adopted and my genes never really did fit in but once I learned that I had Elhers-Danlos Syndrome Classical type I, not only did I know for sure that my genes didn't fit, I found out what has been behind any aliments that I have had my whole life."
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.
