“It’s common to say that trees come from seeds. But how could a tiny seed create a huge tree?
mountain ashSeeds 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 organises the process that generates growth. In a sense, the seed is a gateway through which the future possibility of the living tree emerges.” Taken from Presence: Senge, Scharmer, Jaworski, Flowers, 2004
