[250a] we may not justly be asked the same questions we asked a while ago of those who said the universe was hot and cold.1

Theaetetus
What questions? Remind me.

Stranger
Certainly; and I will try to do this by questioning you, as we questioned them at the time. I hope we shall at the same time make a little progress.

Theaetetus
That is right.

Stranger
Very well, then; you say that motion and rest are most directly opposed to each other, do you not?

Theaetetus
Of course.

Stranger
And yet you say that both and each of them equally exist?
