On seeds..........................

36.  Observe how all things are continually being born of change;  teach yourself to see that Nature's highest happiness lies in changing the things that are, and forming new thinks after their kind.  Whatever is, is in some sense the seed of  what is to emerge from it.  Nothing can become a philosopher less that to imagine that the seed can only be something that is planted in the earth or the womb.

-Marcus Aurelius,   Meditations,  Book Four
