Not sure yes, still mulling it over. I do like that analog though.

Yes pretty much. It's become a mutant abomination in essence. That's not to say it is without worth but the actions Shikin took are certainly at fault.
The flower itself is part of a greater whole. I'm playing a bit of a distributed consciousness as far as lower order plants are concerned. In losing a leaf or a flower or a branch or something, a plant loses it bit of itself. The fallen parts aren't so much dead until they finally wither and wilt. They each will have a bit of 'consciousness' if you will to them, small of course, but there. Shikin's flower probably a but more since it got fraked with but I digress.
