"Tolerance is like salt, it's necessary and beneficial, but too much of it will kill you."
"Tolerance is like the Mother treating all her children the same, giving love, nurture, sustenance to all equally."
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.
