The forest consumes itself

The chaos of the forest: Birth, growth, death, resurrection. Continuous morphing of energy into matter and back again, on timescales that are hard for us to grok. All weather, all conditions, through all time. Sunlight becomes wood, wood becomes mulch, mulch becomes dirt. From scales massive to micro, change is continous, all of the time. Massive things grow, volcannically or glacially or organically, and then they break. Break up into smaller things, then smaller again. Life and death co-exist in the wilderness, co-dependent. Yin-Yang. Earth consumes itself to grow itself.
