    It means you're not much different than your mother or father. Think of it this way,

    Tree PARENTS

    Apple SEED or child

    Since the tree is the parent and the apple is the child the child is close to the tree. This is in figurative terms as well as literal terms.

    It means "this" is similar to "that".
