"On leaving the right ventricle blood goes to the pulmonary artery. From the left ventricle, blood goes to the aorta; from the aorta there are branches to all parts of the body. The pressures in the pulmonary artery are about one-fifth those in the aorta and its branches; but the structure of the pulmonary artery is like that of arteries anywhere. The pulmonary circulation will be considered later"
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.
