planetary gear set
a: Planetary gear set ~
b: the central nervous system
What: "While the ECU is the brain, the Planetary Gear Set is like the central nervous system, which manages the physical interaction between the petrol engine, electric-drive motor and generator. Despite its compact size, the Planetary Gear Set provides yet another important service: intelligently distributing power between the petrol engine and the electric motor."

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.
