"You see my shadow is like a second skin that came with me from the womb. I even suspect that it will grow old and follow me to the tomb"
My Shadow is like some version of Colonel Kurtz in "Apocalypse Now."
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.
