"Both types of Meningitis are a creepy little bunch of spinal cord and brain attackers. "Meningitis" means "inflammation of the meninges" (pronounced meh-NIN-jeez). ("Meninges" are like a three-layer jacket inside our heads protecting our brain and spinal cord)."
"the meninges are like what a car cover is for your car"
"Meninges are like saran wrap that covers the brain and the spinal cord. When the meninges are pulled, compressed or kinked it could irritate the nerves going just about anywhere! It also allows the cerebrospinal fluid to flow freely so it can bathe and nourish the brain and spinal cord. The NRC Technique releases the tension in the meninges thus releasing the irritation to the nerves."
"The meninges are like a thin layer of leather covering the brain. You get through them with scissors. Then the meninges are folded back to reveal the living brain."
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.
