visit to the doctor
"A visit to the doctor is like a status check. The aim isn't to find disease or get on a new medication. Instead, the goal is to get a sense of where your health is, how worrisome the things that bother you are, and whether there's anything you should be doing to avoid disaster both in the near and distant future."
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.
