unity from multiplicity........................

9.  All things are interwoven with one another; a sacred bond unites them; there is scarcely one thing that is isolated from another.  Everything is coordinated, everything works together in giving form to the one universe.  The world-order is a unity made up of multiplicity;  God is one, pervading all things;  all being is one, all law is one (namely the common reason which all thinking creatures possess) and all truth is one - if as we believe, there can be but one path to perfection for beings that are alike in kind and reason.

-Marcus Aurelius, Meditations,  Book VII
