"Gravitational waves are like the expanding circles that appear in a still pond when you throw a pebble into it. If an object has mass, it will generate these waves. But the more massive the object, the greater the effect of these waves."
"For scientists observing cosmos, newly detected gravitational waves are like turning a silent movie into a talkie"
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.
