[About Origin]

A life starts from the material and ends with coming back to it.
Our life may feels such a long time to live however, it is actually only a short second from the time of universe.
But there are numerous birth and death repeating in our living life.
In this process, this only short second has repeated endlessly.
Through the ORIGIN, I've originally reconstructed the time of life as birth and death of the plant.

Circulation of life continues forever.
At this very moment, birth and death happen to somewhere near us.
What I'm saying through this video is continuity of birth and death.
And in this video, I compare circulation of life to plant.
Light, water and soil are indispensable to plant
In the origin, there are 4 place.
First place is called water and soil of space, and plant was borned in this place.
Second place is called fire and light of space. Usually fire means death.
But in origin, fire means born and growth.
After plant growth, one plant changes to big forest.
Forest is third place in origin.
In this place, life is beginning.
Some animals are borne in plant's fruits or leaves.
Also big tree in this place symbols sandglass.
It means flow of time.
Under the big tree, Flower bud born.
It looks like boat.
This flower bud symbols Noah's ark.
When time is up, the moment of plant death, All of the life in forest come to flower bud(like noah's ark story)
And flower bud grow to flower which is contain seed.
Seed means the next generation.
