The Glorious Liberty in a Seed –
Reviving Ancient Ways For Future Abundance
Visit my Author page on Amazon – www.amazon.com/author/tomchaffer – and buy my new book!
A seed revival is spiraling upward from the ground. The information
age is beginning to swirl around the designed systems in nature.
Sprouting humanity is re-awakening to a seed-centered, easy-maintenance
life on Earth and to the ancient agricultural directives of the
Hebrew/Christian Bible and to themselves as eternal souls.
Ours is the opportunity to discover the depths of the original designs
of the Designer and flow there – in timeless abundance.
Our Guiding Principles:
1 – Does it work?
2 – Is it beautiful?
3 – I can do this (the perma-beautiful)!
4 – I’ll build Tools that make stuff better!
This book is livicated to Seth Boyer, an architect and storyteller.
YHWH’s seed-matter is everything. And SeedRevival.com, GloriousLiberty.com or TomChaffer.com is where I trumpet this magnificent, yet microscopic grace. Subscribe there! I’ll keep updating this book as I learn and you get lifetime access to these updates! Lets learn about YHWH’s design skills together!
This is also a companion book to the movie Cicada which will be promoted alongside this book in the future. In the film I follow the emergence of a single cicada from it’s extremely complex exo-skeleton. The ideas that inspire me as I compare our human existence to that of this tiny little bug thrill me. Ideas flow through the narrative of the sun-kissed emergence of this little Cicada in our back yard.

Intro – Founding Sprouts
Sprout: verb (of a plant) to put forth shoots, to start to grow, to spring up, to appear or develop suddenly and in large numbers. #1sprout on Twitter and talk about your sprouting – and that of others you know.
Humans sprout. It’s what we do.
We’ve been created as creators who work with the matter and energy in nature to activate boundless discoveries.
“Of what importance is the human race, that You (YHWH of Israel) should notice them? Of what importance is mankind, that You should pay attention to them and make them a little less than the heavenly beings? You grant mankind honor and majesty. You appoint them to rule over your creation. You have placed everything under their authority. Psalm 8
Regardless of disputed mutation rates, recent DNA research has determined a “Mitochondrial Eve” as the mother of us all. We share this human experience on planet Earth! Our ever-unfolding mind-body connection to our ground has yielded an incredibly complex and yet still-misunderstood genetic bounty.
Then God said, “Let us make humankind in our image, after our likeness, so they may rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move on the earth. God created humankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them, male and female he created them” Genesis 1:26-27 (note) (selah)
We have been fashioned – male and female – in the image of God and are creators ourselves – tasked to “rule over creation.”
According to the ancient, ubiquitous Hebrew book, faithfully kept by God’s people, the Jews, that Mitochondrial Eve and her human seed, the promised Messiah, Yeshua (Jesus), are destined to subject even the antagonism of planetary evil to an idyllic future rich with purpose, discovery and sustainable eternal life.
Could Eve have been “human 2.0” and Yeshua, with mother Mary’s female-only contribution, Man 2.0?
Both Human Genome and the, much more complex, Human MicroBiome research initiatives trumpet the profound design-work of our Creator and represent the vast depth of information-processing we are now capable of. We are only beginning to understand what we’re made of and how to mine this amazing potential of our DNA programming.
Cellphones (another thing to thank the Jews for), robots and spaceships are wonderful, but I contend the fundamental principal of our direct care for creation remains the most profound discovery of all time.
Our yards await! Within the very ground beneath our feet lies a life of abundance and beauty unimaginable. Within a few short months (and a continuing step-by-step improvement for another year), we can turn our lawns and neighborhoods into a perennial produce aisle!
The “let there be light” of Genesis 1, God’s light and sound creative stuff – what I call the “atomsound,” is locked up within us and within the nature around us. The atomsound is the Voice inside the atom giving to each particle of connection to us and our destiny motion and substance.
It spirals within and energizes Earth and time.
That energy, sustained by love, is the seed of our Universe. Coiled up within all of creation is a unified seed-beginning. Everything is full of God’s loving light and sound and we are bound together by the willing sacrifice of His Son for our failings. An “imperishable seed” of His purpose has set our course for the future:
“You have been born anew, not from perishable but from imperishable seed, through the living and enduring word of God.” 1st Peter 1:23
By this gracious, immaculate atomsound, the complex potential of our and our planet’s DNA-seeds await us. The questions I hope to answer with this book are –
What are we making of it all this amazing potential?
How can we maximize it?
And will it last for our children?
Some say we are on the verge of breakthroughs unimaginable. Technologies are developing – and some are online now – which will thrust us upward into an “exponential curve” of increasing contextualization and understanding of the data of our “information age.”
And I agree!
Everything I’ve researched in writing this book tells me that we really are only beginning to make real sense of our world. We are in the process of radically reshaping our planet and its systems and it’s a good thing! The information and technologies of the “internet of things” is providing a democratization of the tools of discovery and implementation – allowing the “little people” of Earth to collaborate together to make a really big difference.
This de-centralization of power is already changing the way things are done on this Sun-circling Rock in education, in science, in commerce and in world view.
And the results will blow our minds.
In this 21st century, Anno Domini nostri Jesu Christi (in the year of the Lord Jesus Christ), an information-fueled revolution of processes, based on new understanding of the functions of life at micro and macro levels will give us, pretty much, new EVERYTHING.
“Many will dash about, and knowledge will increase.” (Daniel 12:4) That time is now. This is the information age, folks.
War tools will soon be retrofitted for peace time – bringing forth technologies that will last well into the wild west of this new millennium. If a system or process or widget or field isn’t made brand new, it will be vastly improved upon in the next 10-20 years.
All we have to do is …
So pull up a bit with me – into the upper atmosphere (where Superman goes for a better view) – and observe our humble Earth…
• from her quiet place, snug in her position in our solar system and spiral galaxy…
• see our privileged planet in her perfectly created symmetry in a narrow “habitable zone” of “just-right” distance from the Sun’s heat…
• see her carefully balanced Eco-systems dancing in a bio-diverse symphony…
• see how the smallest variance in any of the interwoven natural systems could precipitate a catastrophe…
• but never does she waver.
Recognize that our pale blue dot isn’t losing its species at an alarming rate because of some undefinable intrinsic evil, but because humans haven’t been doing things in a proper, sustainable manner. We’ve been miserably failing at “Planet-Handling 101!” And the natural flow of life, with its bugs and weeds, aren’t our problem. The way we manage our inputs and nature’s abundance-coded outputs is the problem!
I’m willing to bet that lately you’ve been feeling a gnawing about that planet-handling situation as I certainly have.
Our spirits are reaching out for answers – like a spiraling beanstalk reaching into the realms of heavens giants – where mighty angels swirl around our faith-trees and eagerly await a roost for the Father’s best-practices.
I feel a particular burden for the planet we give the children of the future. That yearning is sprouting within me.
Is it within you? Driving you on – to a yet-undefined goal for a more secure future?
We are, as the Bible well notes, only blades of grass sending tender shoots into the sky – with a fading but beautiful flower.. or a Cicada, popping out of it’s 17-year shell and soaring into the skies for a moment..
Do you have moments when you sense a breakthrough that will root you? Bring you forth as a lasting sentinel of Earth’s bounty?
Perhaps you’ve perceived a SHIFT is happening in and through you.
Everything can be a beautiful “garden” in your life right now!
We humans were meant to FLOW with understanding and motivation that carries our will and wishes forward…
like a hummingbird in flight.
Learn to attend to that flow – your unique interests and passions.
They’re what have led you to where you are – or perhaps childhood values and dreams are being sparked by my plea. Your passion, you ardor and enthusiasm, your eagerness, zeal, vigor, fire! Your energy-source. The vision that animates your spirit, frenzy, fervency and love. Your obsession.
Let it drive you forward – in to an indescribably wonderful future of abundance and discovery!
Get excited about the prospects of employing the information age – with its internet tools at your fingertips.
The time is now.
Congratulations, Sprout, you’re on your way.
I confidently know YHWH, Maker of our planet and of everything seen and unseen, holds me like He holds you. It has been a long, winding road for me, but I know now more than ever before that streams of light are opening from the heavens upon all humanity now.
The biggest miracle to me is my response in this somewhat worn-out, half-century shell! I’m being infused with my own passion to leave a beautiful, indelible mark on Earth’s history and to tell a grand story of redemption.
I feel the wind of a watching host of heaven compelling me onward to find that flow-spin of energy within that transforms me into what I was meant to become.
I believe there’s something better for this planet than the sum total of the current world systems we have put in place.
And the gift of energy alive within me, a dream and a fire, fuels me.
After all, we’re not really helpless observers. Right?
Some structures of governance, commerce and discovery are better – and some are worse. And there needs to be some healthy judging between them. But may we gather together working systems which govern our lives well and, one day, discard the bloated, broken ones.
And the sprouts – the dreamers and the doers – will fuel us onward!
The United States’ own founding sprouts like Benjamin Franklin and Frederick Douglass, social sprouts like Sojourner Truth and Susan B. Anthony, inventor sprouts like Nikola Tesla, explorer sprouts like Neil Armstrong and entrepreneur sprouts like Steve Jobs and Elon Musk, have all helped to make the world a better place in many ways.
May we be the Americans who gather all those guys’ and gals’ info – along with information and systems that work for us now – and go bravely into our future of abundance with such flourishing!
Pay special attention to the high-minded and exploratory founding sprouts of the USA.
Their insight was given at an extraordinarily key moment in history – with such a vastly superior education to ours this 21st century! I believe theirs was the task of “delivering” the seed from heaven for our next millennium.
And we’ve allowed a military-industrial complex shadow-government steal away so many of their discoveries.
They were chiefly inspired by, among other philosophies of governance, John Locke’s clear directives in Two Treatises of Government:
“The natural liberty of man is to be free from any superior power on earth, and not to be under the will or legislative authority of man, but to have only the law of Nature for his rule. The liberty of man in society is to be under no other legislative power but that established by consent in the commonwealth, nor under the dominion of any will, or restraint of any law, but what that legislative shall enact according to the trust put in it.” John Locke, Second Treatise of Government
And, with that seed, their ever-spiraling, course-correcting morality, resolve and, yet, openness to discussion, embodied in the Federalist Papers, gave us a forward-looking and practical mutually beneficial governmental system still the glue holding together our modern world after these 200+ years.
They answered the riddle of self-rule and gave us a way to preserve a people free from tyranny.
Their vision was Liberty’s just cause.
And the inhabitants of planet Earth have tasted it
and are now beginning to learn how
to cultivate and enjoy it
with an abundant LIFE on Earth.
Liberty’s just cause is the force for freedom of speech,
freedom of religion and
freedom from tyranny (including religious tyranny).
Liberty’s just cause is the idea that the Creator of everything seen and unseen is a benevolent being from whom all that we call “true love” emanates. Children seem to be naturally selfless. They serve simply for the enjoyment of sharing a smile. This is simple proof to me that the most liberating force of all – love – comes from God.
And from that, men and women seek to establish government – a safe place – for their children. A well-governed place where freedoms allow the discovery necessary to scientifically and socially secure our future.
This Liberty from above and exhibited through America’s founders is the fuel for every thriving economy over the last 200+ years – an era of planet-changing discoveries, innovation … and yet, cruelty.
And Liberty’s cause is now more threatened than ever by forces acting against the grace, pursuing sprouts world-wide with an evil intent. Those forces can be labeled and watched closely:
• an atheistic and totalitarian marxism
• a bloody sharia-law and
• a violent, greedy pursuit of everything outside of Earth’s traditional moral underpinnings
Such detestable ideas and forces are baseless, nature-abhorrent and anti-human.
Mark well the times we live in. Soberly assess the actions and implications of today’s players. Balance yourself with a conviction to be counted present at center stage – with Liberty’s abundant fruit on one hand and a chaos of tyranny unimaginable on the other…
Which will you choose?
“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
“That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men…”
And not just ANY government, mind you, but good government! It’s time for each of us to press upward with the same will and perception those great visionaries once penned on lasting parchment.
As I’m sure many of you are, I’m among the children of this nation, the “united states of Amerigo,” (that’s the explorer/map-maker and his world we were named after) and I have been blessed to entertain a vision of the future that’s simple – yet profoundly sensible.
Sprouting humanity is re-awakening to a seed-centered, easy-maintenance life on Earth and to the ancient agricultural directives of the Hebrew/Christian Bible and to themselves as the eternal stewards.
The key word for this simple to grasp, but profound and far-reaching answer is “permaculture.” It’s “the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive ecosystems, which have the diversity, stability and resilience of natural ecosystems” (Bill Mollison).
Nature’s bio-eco symphony clatters with a cymatics of atomsound all around.. intoning to you to get back to the basics.
Be the one who responds. Help Earth to heal and flourish simply by listening much more closely to your ground.
And then be the educator who awakens the sleepers around you.
Re-mix and improve your world – from the ground up.
