Poet's Notes about The Poem

Distinction is necessary for unity

Though a paradox, distinctions are essential for a meaningful unity
‘Upanishads’ says, “I am One, let me be Many”!
Truth is one but accessed and described, differently
Spokes provide path from the rim to the hub, differently

You must recognized the difference and distinction to transcend them
God’s garden has million flowers of planet, stars and galaxies, yet cosmology networks them
Million distinctions of plant, animals and man split into gender, faith and other strands of community
We have to know and respect them before we can connect them into a global family

Some emphasize the difference and some the unification
But without refined distinction, it will be mechanical or steam-rolled integration
All knowledge progresses by creating new distinction and efforts to unit and simplify; a short of ‘simplexcity’
Complex yet simple but not simplistic is the evolution’s progression.
