To get a better understanding of Organic Multiplicity, it is useful to examine the theory's essential two components: design's relationship to natural processes and the imperative of contextual relevance. These two aspects of Organic Multiplicity represent a holistic approach to understanding and practicing design.

The two components relationship to design can be understood as being the external and internal, or on a personal level, the body and the mind. Natural processes refers to the external aspect of design. Economic, social, cultural, and environmental forces induce adaptation mechanisms whose expression are determined by one's innate abilities. The contextual imperative refers to the internal aspect of design and the importance of understanding the subjective relationships and dynamics that exist within the contextual landscape of a project. Together, these relationships create an embracing and gestalt vision of the practice of design.
