This page is unfinished. It may be a mere placeholder in the book outline. Or, the text below (if any) may be a summary, or a discussion of what the page will say, or a partial or rough draft.

This page is unwritten. See the chapter introduction for some explanation. What follows is a very abstract summary of some key points.

Reality is indivisible but diverse. Boundaries and connections are both nebulous, but both real. They are neither objective nor subjective; neither inherent in the world, nor personal choices. They shift to serve practical functions, but cannot be merely imposed or arbitrary. They are accomplished through meaningful social activity of interpretation


This page is in the section Unity and diversity,
      which is in Doing meaning better.

This is the last page in its section.

The next page in book-reading order is Selfness.

The previous page is ⚒ Dualism: the fixation of difference.

This page’s topics are Dualism and Monism.

General explanation: Meaningness is a hypertext book (in progress), plus a “metablog” that comments on it. The book begins with an appetizer. Alternatively, you might like to look at its table of contents, or some other starting points. Classification of pages by topics supplements the book and metablog structures. Terms with dotted underlining (example: meaningness) show a definition if you click on them. Pages marked with ⚒ are still under construction. Copyright ©2010–2019 David Chapman.
