"The physical organism is like a foreign country to these willing atoms whose task is to attune it to its greater spiritual possibilities."
"The physical organism is like a magnificent musical instrument, to be kept in tune by the soul which is the executive of the whole complex unit."
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.
