Everything is related to everything else; in fact, if properly perceived, any one thing can be seen to contain everything else. This interpenetration, however, need not act as a hindrance to thinking about the overall nature of the world. One must merely pick some concept as a starting point, arbitrarily, and take it where it leads. The deeper one digs into one’s initial concept, the more of the interconnected web of ideas one will uncover.
