The One and the Many
I have in mind a question. This is a question that has plagued me for a long time and I need to share it with all who have ears for such things. This is the question of monism versus pluralism.
So which is true? and what is truth anyhow? Is our Universe one? Is our Universe a Multiverse? Can we take the lives, the events, thoughts, and occurrences of all types as a collective epoch of a total? Are we the sum parts of larger existence? Or are we just loosely connected by happenstance? Perhaps we have no connection at all and we assume too much.
So your assignment, should you choose to accept it is this. Are we one or many? and now the hard part, Why?
Obviously, we are walking on thin ice when you reflect on the implications of your answers here; but let's take a walk on the wild side and explore the possibilities. So you tell me.
I eagerly await some feedback on this subject.
