"Everybody gets it, but they soon get over it"
"Sympatric speciation is like the Lernaean Hydra which grew two new heads whenever one of its old heads was cut off"
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.
