The miller sees flour in one way, the baker in another. For the miller, it is a finished product, a complete whole, something ready to go out into the world and do its thing; for the baker it is an incomplete part which stands to some other whole. The baker doesn’t see the flour as anything remaining in itself- it is not what is most real, but something that only has reality by relating to some other thing.
