[245a]

Stranger
But yet nothing hinders that which has parts from possessing the attribute of unity in all its parts and being in this way one, since it is all and whole.

Theaetetus
Very true.

Stranger
But is it not impossible for that which is in this condition to be itself absolute unity?

Theaetetus
Why?

Stranger
Why surely that which is really one must, according to right reason, be affirmed to be absolutely without parts.

Theaetetus
Yes, it must.
