"The petrodollar is, like petroleum itself, a polymorphous universal agent that assumes endless forms. It gives us both the Social Justice Warrior and Burka wearing subjugated women and fundamentalist Islam. It gives us war in the middle east and hand wringing about "refugees". The Petro dollar gives us Wal*Mart America, fast food, and slave made Chinese crap."
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.
