Existential goo

"Rather than separate entities in a vacuum, we might think of individual entities as dense nodes within some infinitely stretchable or distensible viscous substance, some existential goo – neither ultimately separable nor ultimately confounded, though neither without identity nor without the sense of ultimate union." (The Master and His Emissary, Iain McGilchrist, 2009; page 207). I.e., God.
