"Space is like a gateway drug for science. It's so epic, beautiful and awe-inspiring that it draws you in, which leads to questions about chemistry, geology, physics and million other subjects. From near-earth exploration, to looking back on the earth, to interplanetary missions and distant galaxies, 'space' as a subject is, quite literally, limitless."
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.
