C’est La Vie

Image result for cornfield

In a cornfield each tiny seed sprouts into a tiny seedling, subject to the calamities of weather and insects and disease. It struggles on its own to survive without any knowledge of the neighboring plants. But without its neighbors it wouldn’t survive. It would grow tall, blow over, and die. Its own selfish drive to survive benefits its neighbors, as does theirs, and this results in a beautiful field of corn.
