[147a] “Of course not.” “But if they are not other than one another either by reason of themselves or by reason of the other, will it not be quite impossible for them to be other than one another at all?” “Quite impossible.” “But neither can the not one partake of the one; for in that case they would not be not one, but would be one.” “True.” “Nor can the not one be a number; for in that case, too, since they would possess number, they would not be not one at all.” “No, they would not.” “Well, then, are the not one parts of the one?” “Or would the not one in that case also partake of the one?” “Yes, they would partake of it.”
