“The One indwells all things”

“The One indwells all things both individually and collectively; and within the multitude which seems opposed to the One, the One Itself makes the multitude, for what is a multitude but one repeated over and over again? And how may a whole be composed of many if there be no union? And how may a part belong to a whole or to a number unless it itself is something, by which I mean some one? The One, therefore, indwells all things, and if it were taken away each and every thing would be lost”.

~ Marsilio Ficino
