"These memory T-cells are like a stored number on your cell phone; they are programmed to respond to a specific threat that has previously invaded the body.11 These memory T-cells are now programmed to respond to known threats, but will not rally to head off a new, unknown threat."
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.
