WikiMechanics depends on using mathematics to describe experience. So we must comply with the logical law of noncontradictionXlink.png which requires that a proposition and its negation cannot both be true. This means that a seed cannot just transform into some other kind of seed, or suddenly vanish, or spontaneously appear out of nowhere. Because if we objectify some distinct binary sensation as a seed, then logically we cannot also reify the same experience as something else. This law is satisfied if the seeds in each orbit $\sf{\Omega}$ of an isolated particle do not vary. Composite particles may change their attributes by rearranging their components. But individual seeds cannot change or else our accounts become confused and useless. So for isolated particles we require that seeds are repeatedly included in each orbit without altering their type: Seeds are conserved. As a narrative convention we say that seeds are indestructible. This protocol is biased toward describing patterns that are stable or reproducible. It constrains the range of validity of WikiMechanics.
