Spinoza holds that everything can be fully “conceived” or “understood”; we can regard these terms
as being synonymous with “explained”. Spinoza does not think that we do understand everything,
or that we have explanations for everything. He thinks that everything can be understood, and
that there are explanations for everything. To use another of his terms, everything is “intelligible”.
Everything has a cause.

“For all is like an ocean, all flows and connects; touch it in one place and it echoes at the other end of the world.”
