Seeds of growth

I purchased a book yesterday, that I’m still reading, as I think it has some seeds of thought that directly connect to the concepts I’m wrestling with, and while I’m waiting to finish reading the book before commenting further, I wanted to share the introductory paragraph.

It’s common to say that trees come from seeds. But how could a tiny seed create a huge tree? Seeds do not contain the resources needed to grow a tree. These must come from the medium or environment within which the tree grows. But the seed does provide something that is crucial: a place where the whole of the tree starts to form.As resources such as water and nutrients are drawn in, the seed organizes the process that generates growth. In a sense, the seed is a gateway through which the future possibility of the living tree emerges.
