I consider this part of the Soil Series and try to bring the concept of abundant life in Nature to the trees. I have depicted the 'houses' or people realm to be rather lifeless in order to illustrate that we are missing the magic of nature. Can you find the tardigrade?*
The term "As above, so below" has roots in several places. "The concept was first laid out in the Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus:(maybe 900 AD) Also Plato- "That which is Below corresponds to that which is Above, and that which is Above, corresponds to that which is Below, to accomplish the miracles of the One Thing."

*Tardigrades- known colloquially as water bears or moss piglets, are a phylum of eight-legged segmented micro-animals.
