each monomer


A Chain Of Chains.....

a: Each monomer ~
b: single link in a chain

What: "A single combination of plastic molecules is called a 'monomer'. "Each monomer is like a single link in a chain." When they are joined together, usually by using heat and/or pressure and sometimes a catalyst, they make long chains that form a material with a useful mixture of properties."

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.
