"Self-doubt is like blood in the water and the sharks will come get you. We assume everyone else is fine, and we're the only ones who feel self-doubt."
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.
