"Since the temporal lobes are like the gas peddle for the entire brain, calm temporal lobes assist in calming the entire brain. In humans, this reduction in limbic excitability is also associated with more fluid cognitive skills and improved memory. Cognition is more fluid without the disruption and distraction caused by anxiety or central nervous system tension."
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.
