Plants As Books; They Both Contain Information
a: Maintaining biodiversity ~
b: protecting a library of books
What: "Twenty five percent of all prescription medicines in the United States have active ingredients that were originally derived from plants. Maintaining biodiversity will allow us more choices for food as human populations increase on Earth. The goal of maintaining biodiversity is like protecting a library of books that have not yet been read. What information could be discovered in each organic volume?"

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.
