The actual act of drawing a Land card is going out to find those mana sources, I feel. You drew a forest from the deck? That's you finding a forest in your travels and attaching it to yourself as a mana bond. The library is your brain and your cards are your thoughts, so you're just thinking of that cool tree on Zendikar you like.

Also, you can't just put all your lands out into play as once, likewise you can't draw power from a source all at once. That'd mess up the place, and also you.
