no. reflections are diversely-arrayed. some are weightier and
warrant a greater degree of attention and deftness of use.
some are of obvious consistency so as to profitably rely upon them
(describing what are called Natural Laws).

>And is it (primarily) based on 'expression' ?

a resonance between expression and the real. this demonstrates
itself in the results of exploratory science and engineering
with promise of many protective and restorative ends.

>Does undifferentiated conscioussnes concern itself with Truth ?
>*I* thought it had to do with 'being'.

awareness - awakening; integrity with the All-Soul

>So you've still got a pair, even in your nondual philosophy ?

the Good would not be a moral Good in any strict sense (such as that
it is commanded by the divine and obeyed, etc.), but would instead
merely be the aim which any faction may employ in its enthusiasm
in captaining the group. its direction and movement shares 
qualities with life at the individual and societal level. there is
no pair necessary where morality is determined by some religiomystic
cosmology (the end or direction defining utility).
