Unique trait or 'ness'

Universal order of existence is eternal truth with its every unit being an order with its unique trait.  For example - oak-ness of an oak tree is its unique trait.  A peepul tree maintains its definite conduct with all its fruits, seeds and leaves having peepul-ness.  In the same way, the conduct of entire units of plant world and animal world is definite, each exhibiting definite conduct of its respective 'ness'.  This definiteness in conduct of each unit itself is the meaning of “each being an order with its 'ness' and participating in universal order”.  The conduct of human being could not become definite until now and for this reason they could not participate in universal order.  We humans haven’t discovered the way in which we could have order in our collective living; however we have reached the point where we have started feeling its need.  We humans will need to live according to human-ness to become part of universal order.
