"The small vacuole is like the area
underneath the stage. The small vacuole is a place for storage. The space under a stage is usually used to store large set pieces."
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.
