"One needs better metaphors."

I know a huge number of disparate facts.

My gift is my quiet ability to weave them together, synthesize them, create a tale, tidy them up so as to be presentable.

Luca Turin:

"Metaphor is the
currency of knowledge.
... one needs 

better metaphors."

For interdisciplinarians, metaphors as a tool create language bridges, make cultural and sensory synapses, make knowledge more accessible to others, cross-translate languages of the senses.
