"Water is a great solvent, which means it's able to dissolve things very well. This is because water is a polar molecule. A polar molecule is like a magnet: one end of the molecule is negatively charged, and one end is positively charged."
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.
