Background

A description of the experience

Boethius – The Consolation of Philosophy

 this world would never have coalesced into one form out of such diverse and antagonistic parts had there not been one who could unify such diversity. 

This very diversity in turn would make them break out into dissension and tear apart and destroy the unity of the world unless there were a power capable of holding together what he had woven. 

Nature's fixed order could not proceed on its path and the various kinds of change could not exhibit motions so orderly in place, time effect distance from one another and nature, unless there was one unmoving and stable power to regulate them.  For this power, whatever it is, through which creation remains in existence and in motion.
