Arguments [for the proposition] the HaShem is One: Since it has been demonstrated by way of logical argument that the world has a Creator, it is now our duty to inquire as to whether He is one or more than one. It is necessary to prove the true nature of his oneness from seven different perspectives.
The first argument is drawn from examining the causes of existing things. For when we consider these causes, we find that they are fewer than their effect. The further back we go in tracing the causes of causes; the fewer causes we find; the higher we ascend [the hierarchy of causes], the lower their number becomes, until finally, when we reach the top, there is only one cause, the causes of all causes.
The second argument is drawn from the signs of wisdom which are manifest throughout this world, in its upper and lower regions, in its minerals, vegetation, and animals. When we study the world, it shows us that it is entirely the plan of one Designer, the work of a single Creator.
The third argument is based on the fact that the entire world was brought into existence from nonexistence.
