The Three Gorges Dam

In one huge act of unremitting will,
To thirty billion tons this wall says No.
But Yes pours through the turbines of this mill,
As strange thoughts through the Wall of long ago.

(Thirty billion tons, around 30 cubic kilometers, is the amount of water impounded by the dam.)

    I love your metaphor. Just imagine what huge amount of power they would generate if we can build those turbines into our mind!
