- Jean Baudrillard
I had to look up the definition of the word, isomorphic. There are several definitions, all of them tantalizing. Here's the biology definition:
'Different in ancestry, but having the same form or appearance.'
And here's the word isomorphous from chemistry:
'capable of crystallizing in a form similar to that of another compound or mineral, used esp. of substances so closely related that they form end members of a series of solid solutions.'
