Seeds  - Seeds are ripened ovules.  A tree starts life from energy stored in a seed.  Or a tree can start from a cutting that contained stored energy.  Some seeds have embryos that grow after the seed matures and falls while other seeds pass through a dormant period.  Plant lots of seeds -ideas -along the way.  It is always surprising to see those that grow. 
    The seed is mainly stored energy with the beginning parts for root and shoot.  When a seed germinates, in a sense, an oscillating seesaw system starts.
