"The pistil is like our uterus and the stamen like the male reproductive organ. The stamen contribute with sperm/pollen and the pistil with eggs/ovules."
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.
