[163e] of that which he has seen?

Theaetetus
Yes.

Socrates
Well, then, do you not admit that there is such a thing as memory?

Theaetetus
Yes.

Socrates
Memory of nothing or of something?

Theaetetus
Of something, surely.

Socrates
Of things he has learned and perceived—that sort of things?

Theaetetus
Of course.

Socrates
A man sometimes remembers what he has seen, does he not?

Theaetetus
He does.

Socrates
Even when he shuts his eyes, or does he forget if he does that?

Theaetetus
It would be absurd to say that, Socrates.
