a: capillaries ~
b: local routes

What:

"The circulatory system is the body's transportation highway. Arteries, veins and capillaries are like the major and local routes in the body's transportation system. In the respiratory system, as we take every breath, oxygen comes into our body. As we breathe out carbon dioxide, a waste product leaves our body so we can live and be healthy."

Veins are the freeways and capillaries
are the smaller side roads. The red blood cells move down these narrow local roads dropping off oxygen to the houses and people that live along those roads.

a: Capillaries ~
b: bridges

What: "There are three main kinds of blood vessels: arteries, veins, and capillaries. When the blood is pumped out of your heart, it goes into your largest arteries, then moves into the smaller arteries, and into the capillaries. Capillaries are like bridges between your arteries and veins. They are such tiny blood vessels that you can't see them without a microscope. But these capillaries serve a very important purpose. They are like "traders," for it is through their thin walls that blood "trades," or exchanges food and oxygen for the waste materials that these body cells do not need. "

a: Capillaries ~
b: soaker hose

What:

"Arteries and veins are like hoses of different thicknesses. Capillaries are like a soaker hose, always leaking. The analogy breaks down, though, because albumin in the blood pulls the fluid
back in."


"A capillary bed is like the delta at the end of a river. All the
branching slows down the flow."

a: capillaries ~
b: swamps

What:

"The smallest blood vessels, which are located in between, are called capillaries. Arteries and veins are like rivers that carry large amounts of blood very fast. Arterioles and venules are more like small streams
and capillaries are like swamps."

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.
