etymology of ekaggata and ekodibhaava

Dmytro says:
Eka-aggatā means predominance (aggatā) of one thing (i.e. ārammaṇa, basis of concentration).
And when one basis is predominant, it colors the whole mind, so the mind becomes synchronized and defragmented in the "state of singleness" (ekodi-bhāva).
