our body


a: our body ~
b: a walking heater


"Because our body is basically a walking heater. Our cells constantly produce heat, and our body is tuned to produce so much heat that we can maintain an internal temperature of 36C. The amount of heat we produce can change to react to the environment, but when the environment is too hot we can't tone down our own heat production enough to still keep the 36C, which leads to overheating."

a: Cleansing your body from caffeine ~
b: radioactive decay

What: "Cleansing your body from caffeine is like radioactive decay with a half-life period of much less than one day. No matter how much there is in the first place, after a week there is almost nothing left. Just give vour cells and your brain some time (1-2 weeks max) to catch up with the different situation (in terms of missing artificial stimulation), and you will be just fine"

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.
