"Reactants are like you and an old boyfriend/girlfriend...content until you
break up. You are in a state of
agitation...activated complex...until you meet and bond with your new boy/girl and you are happy...at a low
energy state....a new product has been formed."
If you are happier than in previous relationship = exothermic
Happier in previous relationship = endothermic
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.
