Unique, Not Different
Fine tune your understanding. Unique is not different, for different implies different from something that already exists.
Here are a few words on the subject from my book, An Artist Empowered:
As the master has said: art is unique. But that doesn’t preclude aberrations and posers from finding an audience. Unique isn’t a synonym for different; in the same way, being one of a kind doesn’t imply awareness, only curiosity.
Unique for our purposes means original, which is the inevitable and extraordinary outcome of soul awareness.
