[29b] in the constitution of the universe.

Protarchus
Certainly and we are truly storm-tossed in the puzzling cross-currents of this discussion.

Socrates
Well, here is a point for you to consider in relation to each of these elements as it exists in us.

Protarchus
What is the point?

Socrates
Each element in us is small and poor and in no way pure at all or endowed with the power which is worthy of its nature. Take one example and apply it to all. Fire, for instance, exists in us and also in the universe.

Protarchus
Of course.
