"The three years of Montessori is like "baking a cake." "The first year the child gathers the ingredients, the second year the child mixes them together, and the third year the child bakes the cake." Consequently, all three stages have to be achieved in order to see the final result."
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.
