‘Let us begin by considering the growth of a living plant. This growth starts from a seed, but the seed contributes little or nothing to the actual material substance of the plant or to the energy needed to make it grow. This latter comes almost entirely from the soil, the water, the air and the sunlight. According to modern theories the seed contains information, in the form of DNA, and this information somehow “directs” the environment to form a corresponding plant.’

from the essential DAVID BOHM edited by lee nichol 2004 Routledge
