"Everything is actual. This is the meaning of totality."
"It is difference that is primary, not identity defined by forms, essences, or concepts. No two entities are ever exactly alike and no thing ever exactly repeats by virtue of the infinity of atoms. For this reason, no whole forms a totality because every whole is only a local arrangement of atoms that actualizes some possible combinations and not others. As a result, every whole is an open and creative whole. There is no combination that could totalize the combinatorial possibilities."
"In cosmology, for example, we learn that natural laws themselves were formed in the initial, infinitesimal seconds of the big bang...and that there are good reasons to suppose that there are universes with very different physical laws."
"Theological orientations perpetually strive to transform logoi (contingent and open pluralism) into logos (theological necessitarianism)."
