The part and the whole. Which is where dialectics comes in. For each part is a phase of a continuous spectrum which is wavelike. So skin gives way to fat which gives way to muscle which gives way to whatever it is between muscle and bone. But the parts are not separate. Our S merely emphasizes the wave into a separate. Muscle and bone seen ideationally are very different (19th century medicine). Seen by the latest ‘discoveries’ of the last fifty or a hundred years, muscle cells congregate and dissipate as in turn bone cells extended retreat into congregations of bone cells. If I knew more medicine I could express this far more accurately and I believe far more “mystically.”
