Comment: Within a system there are parts. Each system is enclosed by the extents of its domain. Every part is encompassed within the system. The All-encompassing Being includes all of the individual parts, all of the separate systems, and all of the systems together in a single harmony. In order for there to be a harmony of parts, there has to be parts. Without parts a thing is simply itself, whole and complete. God is both.
Human Definitions: (1) in sound health; not diseased or injured; (2) intact; not broken, damaged, or defective; (3) containing all elements or parts; entire; complete
Quote: An act is not, as young men think, like a rock that one picks up and throws, and it hits or misses, and that’s the end of it. When that rock is lifted, the earth is lighter; the hand that bears it heavier. When it is thrown, the circuits of the stars respond, and where it strikes or falls the universe is changed. On every act the balance of the whole depends. … Having intelligence, we must not act in ignorance. Having choice, we must not act without responsibility. — Ursula K. Le Guin (1929-2018) The Farthest Shore
Reflection: As the individual grows in grace and wisdom, they help the Whole to become more complete. As the Whole is evolving to its ideal, it helps the individual to become more perfect. It all works together. Thus, things eventually become more ordered and less chaotic.
