If metabolisms can be simplified in what on the one end is injected into a system—drawing from and limited by an environment, possibly artificially enhanced by technology and transportation—and on the other end what is processed and excreted by the system, back into that environment, the following central themes emerge: energy (input), waste (output), and ground (environment).
