when your nerves fire, a tiny rod gets turned and a hole opens, like the twist of a wrench opening a fire hydrant letting ions flow through in a rush
the nuclei of your cells are organized by twine-like proteins that tie the helical DNA together so that it will send the right instructions, binding on switch to on and off switch to off
your muscle threads are molecular ratchets: this is why the only force they can exert is contractile, cranking along protein strands until the calcium runs out and they slip free
there is no grand overseer, no foreman, in this factory. there is only an unimaginable multitude of tiny engines, self-regulating, self-organizing, safeguarded by redundancy, each part replaceable
