' The manifest, functional order '...
Human beings, whatever they may think, do not live and exercise volition but are entirely lived.
The importance of an individual life, and even the fact of living itself, has been vastly overestimated and exaggerated.
Nature itself defies the human presumption of the "sacredness of life" with the strongest possible demonstration that life is purely incidental to the totality of the manifest, functional order.
All conundrums, all apparent riddles, paradoxes and contradictions subsist only in the split-mind base on subject-object relationship.
They resolve themselves as soon as they are seen from the viewpoint of Totality.
