b: bunch of small Velcro balls in a box
What: The process by which antigens and antibodies existing in suspension clump together.
"Agglutination is like putting a bunch of small Velcro balls in a box with a bunch of flannel
balls, and shaking the box. The Velcro can't stick to Velcro and the flannel can't stick to
flannel, but the flannel and the Velcro can stick together. When the balls bump into one
another, the flannel balls stick to the Velcro balls, which stick to other flannel balls, and so
on until all the balls form one big clump."

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.
