Nothing Dead

“Every portion of matter can be thought of as a garden full of plants, or as a pond full of fish. But every branch of the plant, every part of the animal, and every drop of its vital fluids, is another such garden, or another such pool. […] Thus there is no uncultivated ground in the universe; nothing barren, nothing dead.” – Leibnitz – Monadology, 67 & 69
