There are many metaphors to describe the idea that something big is coming. Sleeping dogs. Sleeping giants. Runaway trains. Quiet volcanoes. Rechargeable batteries….wait, what?
Well, admittedly rechargeable batteries don’t have the poetic value of the others, but the idea remains. Rechargeable batteries are energy accumulators. When recharging, they are gearing up for the work they must perform in the future. When recharging, they are preparing for the moment when they can transfer their stored energy. When recharging, they are building and growing.
