Thomas Taylor: Pitágoras - Opostos Coordenados

quinta-feira 24 de março de 2022

      

Pythagoras   made two co-ordinations of things, one as follows :

Finite - Straight
Odd - Light
One - Square
Right - Rest
Male - Good.

But the other is:

Infinite - Crooked
Even - Darkness
Multitude - Oblong
Left - Motion
Female - Evil.

The Pythagoreans, however, by placing the one in the co-ordination of things good, indicated its perfective and preserving nature. For every thing is perfected in this, and is benefited and preserved by abiding in unity, since it is thus undissipated and undivided  . But when it loses its oneness, it also loses its being.
