Part Whole Product


The MetaProperties of the Whole, Part and Product are used as a means, method and metaphor for explanatory conjunctions in the operation of the Conservative, Progressive and would be Metaphysical Paradigms.


A Whole is described as circumscribed domain, composed of numerically limited multiplicity of elements or Parts, which comprise a Unified Function in conjunction with each other. Every Part is a Whole and every Whole is a Part, except a Choate Whole, which produces no discernible product external to itself, such as the planet earth.


A Part is described as a circumscribed domain, that serves some individual and singular purpose to the satisfaction of the Whole of which it is contained, and which comprises a unified function in conjunction with other Parts of the Whole. Each of the organs of the body as Parts contribute to its overall function and well-being.


The difference between a Whole and a Part is said to be - that the primary function of the Whole is to produce Products internal to itself, and the primary function of the Part is to produce Products external to itself.

The Product of a Whole is internal said to maintain a circumscribed environment in exact or near-like condition to the maximum benefit of each of its Parts, and represents a Product of a Unified Function of all its components, as a forest consists in all of its vegetation and trees. The Product of a Part is said to be of some function external to itself, but internal to the Whole of which it is a part. Body organs are Wholes in themselves but produce products external in service of the Whole as heart pumps blood or the stomach digests food.
