Synopsis Per Barbara's suggestion, Pierre lays out a powerful meditation one can do, based on an analogy in Plato's Republic and element 148 of Proclus' Elements of Theology .

With respect to that analogy Pierre made the comment that, "The more you spend your time on this conclusion, the more you'll see the necessity for the arguments that precede it. There is a discussion of the grammar of heteros in the following Parmenides, i.e. that it takes the genitive and what that distinction...

Dialogue(s): theaetetus Sections: 165e-168a Technical Issues: Unfortunately the original videotape recording had no sound for the first 24½ minutes. During that time, the camera also did not zoom in to the board so we couldn't pick up anything written there. Left with no meaningful aural or visual content, and since it would have only frustrated viewers, we cut it out. We surmise that the reading began at stephanus 165 and covered the whole section of Socrates' long monologue in which he says...
