Bill,

Below are five potential 'onenesses':

o   Divine oneness </wiki/Divine_oneness> , the belief that God is
without parts

o   Oneness (metaphysics) </wiki/Oneness_(metaphysics)> , a concept in
philosophy

o    Oneness (mysticism) </wiki/Oneness_(mysticism)> , union with what
is fundamental in reality

o    Oneness of God </wiki/Oneness_of_God> , the belief that only one
deity exists

o    Oneness Pentecostalism </wiki/Oneness_Pentecostalism>



But these have no relationship to the experiential categories of 
'oneness' that Dr. James Austin refers to in his book.  The five
categories that Dr. James Austin refers to are in the table on page 343.

That's the best one I've hear in a long time:

"...I get the impression that there are five principal categories of
'oneness'"

Ha! Ha! Ha!

(or maybe it should be Ho! Ho! Ho! in honor of Christmas!)

...Bill!
