a: The tablespace ~
b: The Queen Bee of the Oracle Hive
What: Within the Oracle instance, the database files have the complexity and order of a beehive. The tablespace is like The Queen Bee of the Oracle Hive. The tablespace is the Queen Bee and the *.dbf files are her DNA. The worker bees in the instance, the background processes and memory structures have but one purpose; they provide for the access, maintenance and preservation of the *.dbf files. The DNA of the database.

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.
