Knowledge Worth Seeking
“We care for the garden. The world. We are part of the world. More part of the world than you. We have the roots of the plants and their foliage too. We feed off the sun. We understand the flow and purpose of the seasons. We are nature.
We live as it tells us to. We follow its call, which is a higher call than that of the Guardian. She makes mistakes Nature does not. There is no city of our people, as all of nature is our city. No rulers. There is everywhere and everything.
Yes we reproduce. It is not something to be known, but to be experienced. Yes you could but now is not the time. We can mate with any race. Some of the plants are result. Look carefully.
Your questions are pointless. All has been said. We are."
