a: The period ~
b: an atom among a galaxy of words

What: The period is like an atom among a galaxy of words and planetary system of sentences: In appearance it is no more than a speck, but its annihilation would throw the entire system of language into chaos. It acts as a stoplight to our brain: "End of that thought. Stop and store. On to the next thought."

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.
