"Lipoprotein lipase is like the squirrels of the forest, gathering nuts and burying them in secret places as insurance against droughts or a long winter."
"The Right Bite"
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.
