The existence is proved by giving one example - atom, molecule. Another
one: Try to think of your heart as being a holon in the holorchy

More interesting to me is the question, whether one can give an example of
a non-holon. This would be a falsification of the postulate: Everything
that exists exists as a holon embedded in a holarchy.
