[159d] “Then the others cannot partake of the one in any way; they can neither partake of any part of it nor of the whole.” “No, apparently not.” “The others are, then, not one in any sense, nor have they in themselves any unity.” “No.” “But neither are the others many; for if they were many, each of them would be one part of the whole; but actually the things that are other than one are not many nor a whole nor parts, since they do not participate in the one in any way.” “Right.” “Neither are the others two or three, nor are two or three in them, if they are entirely deprived of unity.”
