Macroscopy and Microscopy

In the study of language, few significances are more intriguing than the combination of related prefixes with meaningful suffixes; In this case I will explain an example of the use of macroscopy and microscopy, two words which seem initially intriguing by reference to technology and metaphysics:

[1] Macroscopy: A medicine is said to be best taken once every ten to fifty years

[2] Microscopy: This is the same case where the dose of medication is very small

Metaphorically, similar patterns emerge with other instances of the same; For now, this seems sufficient to explain the subject, but in a dimensional framework surely other standpoints exist::
