"Our surface hydrosphere is like an enclosed glass container. Once the water enters it, it cannot escape. There is thus an increasing level of water content in the surface hydrosphere with increasingly disastrous heavy rainfalls and prolonged droughts. The Gulf's mega contribution in green house gasses would have mattered less, if not for the already imbalanced hydrosphere."
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.
