a: Surface electrode ~
b: a microphone placed over a soccer field
What: "The surface and intramuscular techniques can be compared with the following analogy. A surface electrode is like a microphone placed over the centre of a soccer field." It can record the whole crowd, but can't can't clearly record an individual in the crowd.

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.
