"Special Relativity is like being stranded in a raft in the middle of the Pacific Ocean with no landmarks around -- it is impossible to tell which direction anything is."
"Motto: Special Relativity is like the Moon which shows us only one of her faces: it is Einstein's SR. The hidden face is Hertz's SR."
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.
