The Direction of Progress 51 We act as a whole entity even when this wholeness is not quite perfect. From this springs the possibility of also developing awareness control in the more difficult parts.

As long as we consider only the abstractions and logical content of this phrase it will remain divorced from the "whole man" like any other piece of logical verbalization, without practical significance.
