"Touching is like a new form of language
Words are needed no more"
Part of a song or poem or something.
"What do their words about each other have to do with touching? Here's what we have observed-when couples tell us something special about their spouse in response to our questions, they touch each other as if to emphasize the importance of their words. Touching is like an exclamation mark!"
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.
