Symbols - What does heaven look like

Seed

Van Gogh - "The Sower"                                                                                            Van Gogh - 'The Reaper'

Seed can have the same symbolism as sand – that is grains of sand.  Both can thus be  symbolic of atoms.

But another use of the symbolism is its use in the same way as grain. In this respect seeds symbolise a soul - one who is 'sown on the Earth [is born] who grows and produces more seed [in literal terms as well] but who is then cut down [death] by the reaper.  See Grain.
