The One and the Many

Many keys on the piano – one song;

many players on the roster – one team;

many parts to the body – one person.

 

Multiplicity and Singularity!

 

What is the unifying principle:
            melody?

            cooperation?

            soul?

 

We are surrounded by many mysteries

one of which is the mystery

of the one and the many.

 

Robert Morneau
