governments are about 100... times smaller than a leviathan


i use "leviathan" to refer to that being which humanity comprises as a whole  ... just my literary choice of a mythical beast's name.

my term "100..." means that the one is bigger than the other by not just a few orders of magnitude ... the exact order being unknown.

i did ponder whether i should refer to "the leviathan" but settled on "a leviathan" ... who am i to determine that there is just one?

... for some value of "makes up" ? I doubt that one can invent being.

i have changed my defining sentence to remove the questionable term "make up" which might be guessed to refer to different aspects of this situation.  

Incidentally ... and hopefully quit obviously ... i do not call myself "making up" this being ... i merely named it so that i can refer to it and talk about it.   It is hard for me to doubt that we do not comprise something as a whole.  I actually don't think that is just my imagination ... but who knows ... perhaps it is. 

incidentally, Rudolph Steiner also talks about this being ... though certainly not with the same words that i do.
I'm lost with "being which humanity comprises as a whole" ... to me that is the word humanity. I wouldn't call it after the name of the beast (Sorath perhaps? I am just guessing.) .  You may be referring to some other aspect or property of human activity. I would be curious as to what you remember in RS that even suggests something different for humanity.
