- re-unification of “something and something else” through awareness, and freeing our mind in the process.
- Nora Bateson’s discussions on perspectives, perceptions, context, and ecology could be considered by us as the Environment of the system. The patterns, actions of the system would have their corresponding complementary components in the environment. Co-dependent/co-evolution/togetherness is achieved by the author by opening the boundary of the closed linear systems, and facilitating the communications between subjective-subjective systems, between subjective-objective systems, between greedy thinking human system and the loving working natural environment. Bateson’s ultimate goal would be the re-unification of “something and something else” through awareness, and freeing our mind in the process. This seems to be in line with the ultimate goal of ancient Confucianism 大同, Buddhism 無我, Taoism 無極, and Traditional Chinese Medicine TCM 天人合一 （儒釋道醫）.
