In her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mary Baker Eddy writes (p. 267): "God is one. The allness of Deity is His oneness."

In the oneness of being, where all the ideas of Mind exist, are unity, freedom, spontaneity, and infinite bliss. Oneness is completeness, not needing to have anything added to its already continuous perfection.

In this consciousness of all-inclusive oneness there are not mortal men and women, but the one full manifestation of God, generic man. There are not physical places, but Mind's omnipresence. There are not hours, but the timeless Mind-ordered now of being. In the indivisible oneness of God are man's identity and likeness to his Maker found: one in Love, one in Life, one in fulfillment of divine law. In the all-inclusiveness of Mind we find no "outside," for to the All-in-all there can be no "outside." Perfect God including His perfect idea, man, could not possibly have a need for anything to be added to His already perfect being and reflection. Since God is complete and perfect Being, there is nothing comparable to or apart from Him.
