One could burrow forever into a phenomenon, reduce it to seemingly nothing and still have something. Good to remember there is always, at every level, something to be wondered at. The reductionist will probably reach a point that he gains joy from. It then becomes a question of where you want to stop and stare. In this sense there is no whole, because at every stage there is a whole to be witnessed. Even the process of reduction then seems to have the same qualities as phenomenon: telescopic, without edges, repetitively magical.
