The Metamorphosis of Plants
In Die Metamorphose der Pflanzen, Goethe describes how a rose"grows through itself" (durchgewachsene Rose), destroying its own flower to create a new bud. I had thought that Goethe's claims are a metaphor for the passage of time, until one day, I saw the process he described on a real plant. So often, we use metaphors to describe reality. It was amazing to see reality depict a metaphor.
