a: A vowel ~
b: aeolian harp
What: "A vowel is like an aeolian harp; it makes a full and perfect sound of itself. A consonant cannot sound without a vowel, any more than a horn (except such an one as Baron Munchausen's) can play a tune without a performer."

a: The vowel ~
b: a one placed in front of the zeros
What: "Because no sounds can be made without vowels. All the other letters are useless without vowels. All the other consonants are like "so many zeros" and the vowel is like "a one placed in front of the zeros." We cannot exist without God - in the same way that sound cannot exist without a vowel. Consonants do exist, but their exists is dependant upon their relationship to a vowel. In the same way, you and I really do exist, but our existence is dependant upon our relationship to God. Because God exists, we exist."

a: Vowel of adele ~
b: a tripthong
What: When the radio's playing, what's your favourite track to sing along to? "At the moment I like singing to Adele's Skyfall theme because her accent is funny. Every vowel is like a tripthong (three vowels in one)."

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.
