Seeing A Damned River Is Like

a: Seeing a damned river ~
b: seeing a tiger locked in a small cage

What: "For me, seeing one of the world's greatest rivers separated by 3.4 million cubic meters of concrete and rebar is like being an animal lover and seeing a tiger locked in a small cage with a chain around its neck. Perhaps I am being a bit dramatic but you get my point - I am not a fan of dams."

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.
