The central verse of Earthseed is given in the following:
Consider: Whether you're a human being, an insect, a microbe, or a stone, this verse is true.
"All that you touch
All that you Change
The only lasting truth
(Parable of the Sower, Octavia E. Butler)
The central paradox of Earthseed is:
Why is the universe?
To shape God.
Why is God?
To shape the universe.
Earthseed has inspired an actual social movement named SolSeed and a related Humanistic Pagan religious tradition called Earthseed.
Earthseed has also inspired an actual faith known as Terasem Movement. "Terasem" comes from the Greek roots for "earth" (tera-) and "seed" (-sem). Like the fictional Earthseed, Terasem Movement attempts to "shape God", but through technology.
