a: A solute ~
b: lactase pill

What:

"A Solvent is a liquid that is capable of dissolving another substance. Something that is a solvent is water. Water is a solvent because it can dissolve things like lactase pills. Many other liquids are solvents as well. Soluble means capable of being dissolved. Soluble things are also called solutes. A solute is like a lactase pill. A lactase pill is a solute because it is capable of being dissolved. Aspirin is also a solute because it can be dissolved."

Big 0=speed Of Light

a: Absolute zero ~
b: the speed of light

What: "Absolute zero is like the speed of light--it can be approached but never fully reached. As others have pointed out, we have gotten really close though, but the closer we get the harder it is to get there. According to quantum physics, the colder things get, the bigger they fuzz out."

It No Move

a: Absolute zero ~
b: a completely immobile state

What: "Absolute zero is like a completely immobile state. Molecules are, in a theoretical absolute zero enviornment, not moving at all. However, this is not possible. Scientists have been able to create a near-zero-K enviornment (as close as 1x10^18 degrees), but it is impossible, in space anywhere or synthetically, for absolute zero to be."

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.
