Simple enough to understand, I must presume. One is, well it is. one. There is not another way to put it, in terms that relate to a general understanding. Most of us would associate one with its numeric value, being the same as two or three or forty-two. But that isn’t it; One is different, one is one of a kind. Of course, maths students would be arguing with this post at this moment- probably critiquing the poor choice of words in this post. And for those who wish: One is the first number of the series of natural numbers which is neither prime nor composite and reflects itself when raised to any power.Well, that should suffice. But let’s leave the maths behind for this post, shall we? When one thinks of one, one realises that one plays a crucial role in our lives, which is one role that is irreplaceable- as anyone could clearly see. Tell me if you got that one! Jokes apart, looking at this point, it comes to mind that what would have been the scenario had one not been there. Quite frankly, I am unable to put forth any ideas in this regard. Perhaps that is because one is like truth. It is. Unquestioningly. Asking if what would happen if there was no one, is the same as asking, what if Nazi Germany had won the Second World War, or what if the British never left India? See where I’m going with this? One is an imperative word. Just as indelible from this world as is the fact that we are here on this planet. We could endlessly and aimlessly put forward theories of mass destruction and death, or scenarios where the humans never evolved and the earth is ruled over by reptiles, but that won’t affect the truth- not one bit. One deals with all sorts of technicalities, and those who dismiss one as nothing might as well be saying goodbye to their electronic devices. Here is one part where the truth of one comes about. As binary. A string of code with one’s and zero’s making perfect sense for a computer techie and a pure math wizard, and might even seem beautiful. To say the truth, binary is one of the only languages that is presumed to be universally understandable, should we ever make contact with aliens, that is. One relates a lot to religion, in ways that many may understand. I feel my elaboration on the topic would be like an effort to define the undefinable. One calls for oneness, of thought, action and consequence. Such purity is held within it that the fact itself is enriching to the mind. One is it. One is everything. And that is all that need be said.
