Essential Existentialism

Essence and existence coexist. Each existence and every experience is a representation of the whole, the essence, in which all can be located. Each existence and experience, along with those of others, contributes to and co-creates the whole. When all colors combine into the whole, their hue is overwhelmed by the black common area and differentiation is diminished. Yet, in the whole we can search for both our unique light and that which we share with others in addition to areas of difference and shadow. These nuances may not be immediately apparent given the reductionist reasoning of the whole.

In the picture below, essence is represented by the large black circle and existence is represented by each small color circle.
