"Teaching science is like jazz. I know where I'm going to start and I know where I'm going to finish. I just don't know where I'm going to go in between"
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.
