The soul contains the concepts (logoi) of all things, but it acts according to them [only] by either being provoked to take them in hand (prokheiresis) by some external stimulus or through directing itself towards them inwardly. And when it is provoked by an external influence, as it were outwards, it produces sense perceptions, while when it withdraws into itself in the direction of intellect, it finds itself in the process of intelligising. [Prfírio, Sentenças 16; SorajbiPC:39]
