ten·sor

, pl.

ten·so·res

(ten'sŏr, ten-sō'rēz),
A muscle the function of which is to render a part firm and tense.

tensor

(tĕn′sər, -sôr′)
n.
1. Anatomy A muscle that stretches or tightens a body part.
2. Mathematics A set of quantities that obey certain transformation laws relating the bases in one generalized coordinate system to those of another and involving partial derivative sums. Vectors are simple tensors.

Por mucho que de la filosofia que subyace en su diseno se destilen algunas nociones tradicionales de representacion y simbolismo, la pastilla termina por convertirse en una superficie en la que se proyectan las ideas compartidas mas variopintas respecto a la forma, el espacio, el progreso o el poder, lo que genera un campo tensorial de expectacion semantica que bien podria competir con el potencial comunicativo de cualquier forma heredada de "simbolismo" arquitectonico.
