•Seed germination: Germination of seeds is a complex physiological process triggered by imbibition of water after possible dormancy mechanisms have been released by appropriate triggers (see webpage "Seed Dormancy").Under favorable conditions rapid expansion growth of the embryo culminates in rupture of the covering layers and emergence of the radicle. Radicle emergence is considered as the completion of germination. The definition that a visible protrusion of radicle tip is the completion of germination is not only a definition issue of seed physiologists. This transition point is also characterized by the loss of dessication tolerance and this is a molecular checkpoint (in Arabidopsis regulated by ABI5), a developmental molecular switch from the germination program to the seedling program.

The seeds have DNA.
Water, dirt, and rock don't.
DNA is life.
We're not god. We're not gods. We're no where near what we consider a god to be.
the 3D reality we perceive is simply the end result of many levels of reality far more complex.
I don't think we need an ethereal spirit to achieve it though.
