Being One Thing

Parmenides saw the undifferentiated nature of being. Being is not differentiated within itself, so inasmuch as things are said to be, there can only be one being. Any distinction between things must be predicated upon something other than being, but the only thing besides being is non-being, which is literally nothing. At this point, if we have no adequate response, we should cease thinking or speaking, for our metaphysics and thus all true knowledge, is complete.
