a: Memory b-cells ~
b: reserve military troops
What: "Memory B-cells are like reserve military troops. They have been taught how to fight (i.e., have the gene to produce the antibody), are not fighting at the moment (i.e., are circulating through the body), but could be called into the battle at a later time (i.e., will turn on the antibody gene)."

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.
