"Space weather is like a shark whose fin we see gliding across the interplanetary waters. We know it is there, but we haven't completely figured out what to do when it strikes."
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.
