Parable of the Sower

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
You Change.

All that you Change
Changes you.

The only lasting truth
Is Change.

Is Change."

(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.
