“Life on earth is a whole,
yet it expresses itself in unique time-bound bodies,
microscopic or visible,
plant or animal, extinct or living.
So there can be no one place to be.
There can be no one way to be,
no one way to practice, no one way to learn,
no one way to love, no one way to grow or to heal,
no one way to live, no one way to feel,
no one thing to know or be known.
The particulars count.”
“Nothing is less real than realism.
Details are confusing.
It is only by selection, by elimination,
that we get at the real meaning of things.”
“The basic structure of the universe
is balanced on a razor’s edge
for life to exist”
