365 Ways #62–the sum of our parts

#62–Arthur Koestler, in his book The Ghost in the Machine, coined the term “holon” which is something that is simultaneously a whole and a part. A cell, for example, is an entity unto itself. Yet, combined with other cells, the one cell becomes part of an organ, or a system, or a whole body. Humans, too, are holons. We are each individuals. But we are part of something greater. Even though it may not be seen or felt, what we do to one we do to all. We are all connected.
