The organs through which you perceive hot things and hard 2 Plato alludes here to the famous wooden horse of the Trojan legend. and light and sweet--do you not state them to belong severally to the body, or do they belong to anything else? Theae. To nothing else. So. Will you also be ready to admit, that what you perceive through any one organ, you cannot possibly perceive through another; for instance, what you perceive by hearing, you cannot perceive by sight, or the converse? Theae. I most readily admit it. So. If you have any common notion about both, you would not acquire it from the one organ or from the other concerning both? Theae. I should not. So. As to sound and colour, in the first place, have you this same notion respecting both, that both 'are'? Theae. I have. So. You suppose also, that each is different from each, and the same with itself? Theae. To be sure. So. And that both are twain, but each is one? Theae. Yes. So. Are you not also able to observe whether they are like one another or unlike? Theae. Probably. So. Through what do you form all these notions concerning both? For neither through hearing nor through sight is it possible to obtain a common notion of them. Here again is another instance in point. If it were possible to examine, whether both are briny or not, you know that you will be able to say with what you will examine, and this is evidently neither sight nor hearing, but something else. Theae. No doubt it is; namely, the power exercised through the tongue. K. P. 12 So. Well said. Now, through what does the power act which makes manifest to you what all things generally have in common with these particularly--what you mean, to wit, in saying 'is, ' 'is not, ' and all else comprised in.
