The memory containeth also reasons and laws innumerable of numbers and dimensions, none of which hath any bodily sense impressed;
seeing they have neither colour, nor sound, nor taste, nor smell, nor touch. I have heard the sound of the words whereby when
discussed they are denoted: but the sounds are other than the things. For the sounds are other in Greek than in Latin; but
the things are neither Greek, nor Latin, nor any other language. I have seen the lines of architects, the
very finest, like a spider's thread; but those are still different, they are not the images of those lines which the eye
of flesh showed me: he knoweth them, whosoever without any conception whatsoever of a body, recognises them within himself.
I have perceived also the numbers of the things with which we number all the senses of my body; but those numbers wherewith
we number are different, nor are they the images of these, and therefore they indeed are. Let him who seeth them not, deride
for saying these things, and I will pity him, while he derides me.
