Many Ways

a: Manifold ~
b: intricate embroidery

What: "This mystery reveals the manifold wisdom of God. Manifold is like intricate embroidery or the varying ways that light is reflected through a diamond. In God's church, the impact of the revelation of Jesus Christ transforms each member to reflect God's love in a particular way. Then the whole body, joined together in Christ, reflects the manifold wisdom of God."

Huh

a: Manifold ~
b: bracelet

What: "The manifold is said to be fibered because if you imagine stretching out the thickened surface so the boundary surfaces are far apart, then drawing the boundaries around to face each other before gluing them together, you can imagine that the resulting manifold is like a bracelet that has an infinitely thin surface-shaped bead at every point on the bracelet's strand; these beads are the "fibers."

Topology It Is

a: 3-manifold ~
b: our universe

What: "A 3-manifold is like our universe and can be thought of analogously to the 2-manifold being a surface. This may not be intuitive; one of our goals in this unit is to develop a better understanding of the concept of 3-manifolds."

Heat Flow In An Egine

a: The manifold ~
b: a heat sink

What: "I'm betting on the cylinder head, since it's the source of the heat. The manifold is like a heat sink, which can't ever get hotter than the source. The further you get from the source, the lower the temperature is."

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.
