As for the "two is one, one is none" concept, it originated in the military, to emphasize and stress, to the lowest level, the importance of redundant systems to accomplish a mission. If there's a single point of failure in a system, the entire system is failure prone.from the strategic all the way down to the operational level, no plan is executed without some redundancy and contingency. To do so is to invite failure.

I typically avoid cliches; they tend to over simplify things if one doesn't understand the context... however, in this case knowing the context, the concept is valid.
