I don't know if you are familiar with Ken Wilber. His book, Eye of the Spirit was most engaging and complex. He introduced the Holon concept in which a particular level is encapsulated into a larger level. I may shudder at the implications, but it does make sense to me. My notes are all over my copy of the book. I haven't reread it lately. It is intense.
The virtue of a highly evolved being embraces all people and things and dispels the darkness which isolates them.
Hua Hu Ching-primary lesson.
