A Fractal Allegory: A review of The Seed by Erik Guzman

Ryan Eidson  —  August 6, 2016

the-seed-book-coverDo you enjoy allegories? The Seed – A True Myth by Erik Guzman has multiple layers to its allegory. Guzman put much time into crafting the story(ies) within this book.

In this book you will discover how deeply rooted the lies about our identity go in our lives, and how deeply loved we are by our Father as He continually draws us to Himself.

There is some intense drama in this story: light vs. darkness, good vs. evil, love vs. apathy. Some of the lessons learned through the chaos are:

  • Run from the shadow, only to run into the Light
  • So busy building that you neglect relationships
  • When you do life all on your own, you get into trouble and forget where you truly came from

If you’re not used to multiple plots/stories weaving together in one book, it might take you a while to sort through the storyline of this book.

As a story with fractals (see the introduction), there can be multiple interpretations. Go here to read it for yourself!
