“We are told that the plants were created first and their purpose was to hold the world together for others who would eventually come along in the future. They were instructed to develop the strongest method of teaching possible, and that is called teaching by example. Teaching by example means to show or demonstrate a teaching, and that is what the plant people do if we are willing to learn.”
