a: Human being ~
What: "My friends," Kocka said, "don't treat me differently because I'm a priest and a sculptor, and I don't see myself as different." Kocka sees no division between the spiritual life and the everyday life of chores and hassles. "We're surrounded by the divine presence, but we can't perceive it. We're like dogs. Dogs lie in the midst of human speech and don't understand it."

a: A human being ~
"A kaleidoscope is an intriguing though generally unassuming object, small, and not always so interesting to look at on the outside. Inside, however, it provides us with another view. It seems amazing, beautiful, stunning, complicated."

A Fish Contemplating Water As Humans
a: A human being contemplating magnetism ~
b: a fish contemplating water
What: "A human being contemplating magnetism is like a fish contemplating water. The fish is in water, water is in the fish ( and surrounding every cell). The fish gets its oxygen, thus its energy source from the water. Comparing this image to the fish swimming joyously in a clear, clean, beautiful mountain stream. Now picture the fish struggling for life, gasping for air, sick and sluggish in a scummy, toxic, stagnant pond."

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.
