"Change is the essence of life. If there were no change, there'd be no butterflies. Metamorphosis is like salvation; just when the caterpillar thought life was over...it became a beautiful butterfly!"
"Metamorphosis is like walking on a dark road for the first time-I can't see too much for a while, but once I do, I will realize that change from the light is nothing to be fearful of."
"Emotions metamorphosis is like a series of chaotic waves moving through us and changing at any moments notice. It's filled with up's and down's, but as far as the shift in energy is concerned, it's something that can't be explained with words. So Art is really the only way of seeing it and making any sense of how emotions change and over time they change us."
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.
