Set in the context of the Whole

This entire project is unfolding from the top-level, including all factors at the same time: application, every facet of interdisciplinary integration, social change, technical facets in mathematics

It's a process of defining the big picture and converging on the details

This seems important, because we want this entire project to express the Whole and serve the Whole, and be developed with respect to the Whole.

This means "everything at once"
