But people seem to forget that somethings have sensible images, which may be easily shown when any one desires to exhibit any of them or explain them to an inquirer, without any trouble or argument while the greatest and noblest truths have no outward image of themselves visible to man which he who wishes to satisfy the longing soul of the inquirer can adapt to the eye of sense, and therefore we ought to practise ourselves in the idea of them for immaterial things, which are the highest and greatest, are shown only in thought and idea, and in no other way, and all that toe are saying is said for the sake of them. Then reflect . . . that the soul is in the very likeness of the divine, and immortal and intelligible and uniform and unchangeable and the body is in the, very likeness of the human, and mortal and unintelligible and multiform and dissoluble and changeable. And were we not saying long ago that the soul, when using the body as an instrument of perception, . . . is then dragged by the body into the region of the changeable, and wanders and is confused the world spins round her, and she is like a drunkard when under their influence.
