Pieces Appear Many but Puzzle is One.

While scientific inquiry often involves breaking down complex phenomena into smaller, more manageable pieces in order to better understand them, it is also important to recognize that there may be deeper, underlying questions that cannot be fully addressed through reductionist approaches alone. For example, it may be valuable to consider why the whole perceives itself as diverse to begin with, as this could provide insights into the fundamental nature of reality and our place within it. Therefore, a holistic and interdisciplinary approach that incorporates insights from different fields of study, including but not limited to anthropology, biology, cosmology, philosophy and spirituality, may be necessary to fully understand complex phenomena such as the relationship between the whole and its parts, or, why the whole perceives itself as parts.
