"My point here should be obvious. Patriarchal Christianity is like an overgrowth in the world's garden. Patriarchal husbands, fathers and pastors are like my Big Marigold: they believe that they are supposed to be the focal points in the garden, that they should be bigger than all the other flowers, that they should have more of the sun and rain and that their great size protects the other flowers from the wind and bugs."
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.
