Is the Pythagorean image of the harmony, or that of the monad, the truer expression?
Pythagoras held that the unit or monad is the principle and end of all.
In what then do these unities differ from the Uniqueness (or Monad)?
By wanting to be, the monad makes itself the elephant, the eagle, or the man.
The monad, then, is a spiritual unity; it is individualized life.
