light harvesting complex


a: light harvesting complex ~
b: blade of a windmill


"Energy Conversion is what it's all about. Windmills convert wind energy to mechanical energy. This is done when wind pushes on the windmill blade and causes it to turn. The light harvesting complex converts a photon into a high energy electron. The energy from this high energy electron is used to create high energy molecules, ATP and NADPH that are ultimately used to fix carbon into glucose.

METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
