How to use "Whole idea" in context?

So what is a whole idea? Aristotle defines a whole idea as a "divisible unit of thought that underlies a comprehensive or comprehensive whole." What this means is that a whole idea is the idea that provides the foundation for an entire system, encompassing its parts. A whole idea can be qualitative - such as love - or quantitative - such as 6.2. Aristotle goes on to say that a whole idea must be something that can be contemplated without being divided. This is why, he argues, a whole idea is more "complete" than its parts.
