its symbolism...? I'm trying to find a really captivating, abstract parallel between some sort of scientific (preferably that used in Biology or Chemistry) apparatus/machinery. Said mechanism needs to be described in a compelling manner and be an apparent symbol or metaphor for something us humans experience.
For instance, while this is completely undeveloped, a microscope could be metaphorically putting one’s life under scrutiny or paying attention to its close details.
I was considering using this as one of the hooks of my college admissions essay...this isn't for certain, though. Any help would be MUCH appreciated!! =]
