An American Metaphor

a: Homeostasis ~
b: being a runner on second base

What: "Homeostasis is like being a runner on second base in a baseball game. The runner has a stable place to stand while he watches the next pitch, but at the same time he is poised for action. Homeostasis works the same way. Your body exists in a stable place while at the same time being poised to go into action."
