"Maybe plants are really farming us, giving us oxygen until we eventually expire and turn into mulch which they can consume"
"Humans will never, never ever be able to know how big the universe is. We are but a Mud Skipper on the beach trying to measure the Pacific Ocean."
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.
