"Water pollution is like sin: everybody is against it. Nobody can be found who will publicly or privately advocate despoiling our water resources. Yet, pollution does occur. And there are streams, lakes, and underground waters in this country, even in California, which cannot be put to their full beneficial use"
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.
