Polymorphism in OOP-Terminology means that a certain message may be implemented by different
objects in different ways. A good example is the `display'-message sent to a number, a string
of characters or a list. It is always the message 'display yourself!'. The object must know
itself what has to be done and how, nobody cares as long as the object appears on the screen.
