What: "Viral nucleic acid is like a computer program," Professor Burrell explains. "It's the genetic blueprint. The virus particle is like a CD that's learnt the skill to jump from one computer to another and to use any means necessary. Once inside the computer it programs the computer as if it was alive. The core of the whole thing is the information in the program."

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.
