The amoeba signifies the purest, untainted, original heart of life, through the eyes of which we see a beautiful new world of life.
In the primordial chaos of creation, Mother Earth created the amoeba out of converging lights and forces. As the new amoeba basked in the moonlight, the people celebrated its arrival. Yet not all were pleased: volcanic fires and torrential winds lunge to challenge the newcomer. Undaunted, and under the gentle guidance of Mother Earth, the amoeba faces these challenges, bearing the hopes and loves of all creation.
