"Everything in this universe is enmeshed together like the lines and
ties of a fisher's net. To think that any part can stand alone is as
foolish as it is to think that one small knot in a fisher's net can catch
a fish. Flowers do not bloom, nor does a leaf fall independent of causes and conditions. All things in the universe are interdependent in this ocean of constant change. This is the one thing that does not change."
~The Flower Garland Sutra (Avatamsaka)
