"To remember what an omnivore
is, think of this math problem:
herbivore + carnivore = omnivore
Omnivore and omniscient begin the same way. Authors who are omniscient write as if they know everything about every character in a story, including what every character is thinking and feeling. An omnivore is like an omniscient eater!"
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.
