Nothing exists inherently, or is its own cause.
An object can be defined only in terms of other objects. Interdependence is essential to the manifestation of phenomena.
The world would not be able to function without it.
So a given phenomenon can come about only if it is linked to others.
Reality cannot be localized and fragmented, but should be considered as holistic and global.
