"The cuticle is like the outer paint of the pencil"
"The answer is that your hair cuticle is like a sponge absorbing all
treatments, but like a sponge it can be clogged if not properly
cleansed and rinsed."
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.
