"The vasodilation is like the radiator in your car, the blood flowing more freely lets the blood vessels near the skin to act like the vanes in a radiator. You can feel the lost heat"
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.
