Every single thing in this world exists only in relation to the whole system


You, in your fundamental existence, are the total energy that constitutes this universe, playing that it’s you. Playing that it’s this particular organism, and even playing that it’s this particular person, because the fundamental game of the world is a game of hide and seek. That is to say that the colossal reality — the energy that is everything, that is a unitary energy, that is ONE, plays at being many. – Alan Watts speaking in audio “The Middle Way”
