First Proof: The wondrousness and manifestation of oneness in the creation and living of trees.

FIRST PROOF

Come and look carefully at everything around you: a hidden hand is working within all these works. For something which has not even an ounce of strength, (1) something as small as a seed, is raising a load of thousands of pounds. And something that does not have even a particle of consciousness (2) is performing extremely wise and purposeful works. That means they are not working by themselves, but that a hidden possessor of power is causing them to work. If they were independent, it would necessitate all the works which we see everywhere in this land being miracles and everything to be a wonder-working marvel. And that is nonsense.

(1) This alludes to seeds, which bear trees on their heads.

(2) This indicates delicate plants like the grapevine, which themselves cannot climb or bear the weight of fruits, so throwing their delicate arms around other plants or trees and winding themselves around them, they load themselves onto them.
