The Universe is 1, infinite, immobile.
The absolute potential is 1 ..
The act is 1 ..
The form – the soul – is 1 ..
The material – the body – is 1 ..
The thing is 1, the being in 1,
1 is the maximum and the best
It is not generated,
because there is no other being it
could desire or hope for,
since it comprises all being.
It does not grow corrupt,
because there is nothing else into which
it could change,
given that it is itself all things.
It cannot diminish or grow, since it is infinite.

~Giordano Bruno
Cause, Principle, and Unity’, 1584 CE
