"There becomes the sense, then, of at least two directions: one is the limited horizon of what we know of as ‘it all’ and the beyond – in both quantitative and qualitative senses – a massive ‘beyond’ of all that is o/Other, along with a ‘negative’ flip-side to all that is ‘positive’ or ‘posited’ – and a differential slippage that is always there in our experiences, an elusive quality that is always just out of reach or slips away at every grasp."

"We have the ability to identify ‘everything’ as a whole (or a ‘One’), which, once we’ve done that, makes it a part rather than the whole. If I can put ‘it all’ into words like ‘it all’ or ‘everything’, I’ve distinguished it as, in a sense, other than me. ‘It all’ is now scratchy marks on a page like e = energy. We could give ‘it all’ any label or symbol we want to. But then this is the 'strange distinction' between part and whole...."

This is the site where the term "gene" was coined.
Credited to Wilhelm Johannsen in a lecture here at the University of Copenhagen in 1909.
Now it is the social sciences library and psychology department. And site of Gatherings in Biosemiotics 2023.
Technically the Johannsen lecture was in the conjoined building just behind this frontside building.
