How did the woodsprites (atokirina') or seed of the tree of souls know that Jake Sully was so important?
The Tree of Souls (Vitraya Ramunong) is the connection to Eywa and the ancestor's. Ie messages from the past could be possible. But the future?
I understand Eywa "is a deity, a goddess. Made up of all living things. Everything they know". So possibly can see/know the future. But the tree of souls and the little seeds are methods for the ancestor's to pass messages to the Na'vi of Pandora.
How do the dead see the future? Or is it the dead seeing the future through Eywa and then passing on a message to the living?
