"Words are like water.
Water is in continuous movement. It changes states from vapor, to liquid to ice and back. It's a perpetual cycle."
"This is because words are like the rudder of a ship. Once spoken, words begin to steer your life in a specific direction."
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.
