a: Human brain ~
b: a general in a bunker
What: "The human brain is like a general in a bunker. Floating in its bubble of cerebrospinal fluid, it has no direct window to the outside world, so the only way for the brain to observe, comprehend, and order the body into action is to rely on information it receives. This information comes to it through a sophisticated system of sensory neurons that connect the brain to organs like the eye, ear, nose, and mouth."

Human Brain Is A Jet Plane But......
a: The human brain ~
b: a trans-sonic plane
What: "The human brain is a trans-sonic plane, and the doctors studying it are engineers from 1900." So it like the Wight brothers trying to understand the space shuttle with with their contemporary knowledge. This is a mind open comparison for those trying to "correlate" the human mind to a computing machine.

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.
