Various plants propagate themselves/their future generation by means of cloning/cuttings, this involves severing or extending parts of themselves to grow a new body with its own root system. This has me wondering whether another elemental begins to work via that cutting or if it's the original that still maintains it?

There are no individuals in the mechanical kingdoms — mineral, plant, animal, intellectual animal. There is only collective mind.

To be an individual being — that is, one consciousness, integrated in one body — is something that exists only in the conscious kingdoms of nature, which are superior to the mechanical kingdoms.

In the lower kingdoms, physical bodies are like the cells of an organ: the individual cell (or physical body) is not the operating intelligence within.

Collective mind rules the lower kingdoms.

Therefore, the individual plant body is only part of a larger system.

We suffer the illusion of individuality, and project that illusion on to everything we see. We think our dog and cat are individual, and each plant has one soul. This is not the case. That is an egotistical illusion.

Do animals and plants also return to this world?

Samael Aun Weor: The souls of plants, animals, and stones are the elementals of nature; they also return to this world in continuous manner. For example, if a plant dries up and dies, then the elemental of such a plant is reborn again in a new plant; if an animal dies, the elemental of that creature returns in a new animal organism again, etc.


Can you please help us to put this in perspective, what you have said is understandable and makes sense since it is quite clear that creatures both tiny and large operate in a collective manner, this is observable even at the physical level. However in the statement made by Samael Aun Weor (quoted above) the aspect of individuality seems applicable to some degree, at least it appears to have some sort of validity at a relative level?
