functional group


Functional Groups On Organic Molecules

a: A functional group ~
b: the arms and legs on the molecule

What: "The functional groups are like the arms and legs on the molecule's body and therefore tend to interact more with the environment and noses". I would include other parts of the human body in this analogy. Including, the sexual organs, the mouth and the other interactive parts of the body. Even deeper, ones heart, ones emotional being and interacting with other people is of course a very important functional group.

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.
