"Living with hypertension is like having the sword of Damocles hanging over you because your risk of a heart attack or stroke is so high, but now a huge weight has been lifted."
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.
