[23c] in making our beginning.

What kind of a beginning do you mean?

Let us divide all things that now exist in the universe into two, or rather, if you please, three classes.

Please tell us on what principle you would divide them.

Let us take some of the subjects of our present discussion.

What subjects?

We said that God revealed in the universe two elements, the infinite and the finite, did we not?


Let us, then, assume these as two of our classes, and a third, made by combining these two.
