"know what I said all sounds convoluted, but it can be easily distilled into a simple example. The serotonin is like your finger hitting a receptor on your keyboard, a letter key. Once you activate that key by pressing down upon it, it activates a nerve-like pathway, which sends an electrical signal to the hard drive, akin to your brain, that results in a message, the letter appearing on your screen."
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.
