The Zen Master was meditating over his network, at oneness with the Flow. A student approached the master and asked ëMay I not stack the Cisco c3750 switches to create more connections to the Flow ?í.
The Master looked carefully at the young apprentice and said ëIt is believed that the sum of the parts is greater than the whole and that combining many into one creates more Flow.í. And the student nodded, because that was his thought.
The Master smiled and then said ëBut that which is many, always remains many and is never truly oneî.
And the student was enlightened.
