The basic commandment is that we loveintegration.What is integration?Integration, basically, is putting thingstogether.Creating systems. Creating harmonies.Creating significant relationships. Creatingunities. Creating wholes.It is the basic process, which occurs at alllevels of nature. Matter and energy (whichare well thought of as one thing--matergy)integrate to form atoms. Atoms integrateto form molecules. Molecules integrate toform cells. Cells integrate to formorganisms. Organisms integrate to formfamilies. Families integrate to formcommunities. Communities integrate toform ecosystems. Ecosystems integrate
 
to form biospheres. Biospheres integrate--to become healthier.This can be looked at in many differentways. As people integrate, they become moreintelligent.Individuals integrate to become couples.Communities integrate to form nations.Groups of nations integrate variously.Stars integrate into galaxies. Cosmic dustintegrates to form planets. As organisms and ecosystems integrateover long periods of time, evolution occurs.Complexity develops. As complexity of life-forms develops,
 
complexity of mental processes develops. As complexity of minds develop,complexity of culture, complexity ofcommunication, complexity of technology,complexity of relationship, and complexityof thought increases. As people become more complex, theirvariety of activities and choices multiplies. As our freedom increases, so must ourresponsibility. Or else we disintegrate.If humanity consents to, and acts to,integrate as a global community, wars andtheir devastating suffering could become athing of the past.However, integration is not necessarilysimple. It can be extremely complex, anddifficult to achieve.
