“if you seek the cause of simple multiplicity elsewhere than in the One, you will greatly err”

“…if you seek the cause of simple multiplicity elsewhere than in the One, you will greatly err. For where do you wish multiplicity itself to start from? If it be from another multiplicity, you will fall multiplicity into infinite regress. If it be from no cause, then multiplicity is the first cause of creation and there will be no union and no order within creation”.

~ Marsilio Ficino
