some thoughts about the power plant

by Andrea Elizabeth

My first impression was, how unnatural. All the concrete and metal with no organic material to be found. But then he started comparing it to organic things like certain relationships, and I could see that all the systems, the fuel, control centers, lubrication, and water, could be compared to body systems. Certain relationships in that it is so complex and delicate, that one imbalance requires that the whole plant needs to shut down and started over. That’s how I compared his explanations anyway.

But if it is to be compared to a body, it would have to be to a robot. But if compared to relationships, then it would be top down. Stronger to weaker. Man to woman, woman to child.
