What: "You can kind of think of microtubules as the cell's highways and actin fibers as the local roads. Motors like myosin, dynein, and kinesin are like the cars and trucks that ferry things around the cell. They can also be used to generate large scale motion, like muscle contraction or cell movement."

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.
