As the artificer of the concept and formula of Harmony in Gradation, we suggest that the use of N = 1 in the Harmony in Gradation formula is only for the Creator of the Universe.
As a result, you cannot apply the formula of Harmony in Gradation, by defining N = 1 in a human being, because a human is never alone. In more detail, according to psychological theory, a living human will consist of body and soul, then at least according to the understanding of this science, if you want to use the Harmony in Gradation formula, at least N is two. Then, according to biology, human physics consists of billions of cells which, even though grouped, are also impossible that N = 1.
Also, you cannot use the Harmony in Gradation formula in an industry that only has one company by defining N = 1, because in one company in an industry no one lives alone without being dependent on anyone else.
