Plants are natural storage places. They save water, fiber and seeds just in the same amount as humans try to save massive amounts of goods in concrete silos. However, plants have also stored genetic information over millions of years. Faultlessly passing it down from generation to generation, facilitating reproduction and thus basically saving life.
In comparison, humans save goods and data to fulfill the ever growing demand of mankind and to ensure the future. Their distribution and datacentres are aiming to store matter and information with the same efficiency as plants do. But how much silos, storage and data centers would it take to save the essence of it all: LIFE.
