Root: a branch that extends below the soil. Unlike the leaves above, it breathes oxygen and exhales carbon dioxide, just like animals, but then that’s because it feeds sugar to bacteria so they dissolve the rock around it into mineral nutrients. Conversely, a branch is a root in the air. Trees live in the sky, or, better said, two skies at once.
