What: "The ability of a cell to mantain internal equalibrium by adjusting it's physiological process Equilibrium is like a ballast tank because it evens out the cell, Plasmolysis is like dehydration because it is due to loss of water."

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.
