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
