"Stress happens to the brain just as easily as it happens to your muscles. Your noggin is a vacuum for energy and nutrients and having an inflamed brain is like trying to drink a milkshake through a cocktail straw. The beast gets starved, which can make normal men go crazy."
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.
