>First, then, we will discuss face-to-face intercourse between a dreamer and his living mother, since a mother who is alive does not have the same meaning as a mother who is dead. Therefore, if anyone possesses his mother through face-to-face intercourse, which some also call the 'natural' method, if she is still alive and his father is in good health, it means that he and his father will become enemies because of the jealousy that generally arises between rivals [which would be greater in their case]. But if his father is sick, he will die, since the dreamer will take care of his mother both as a son and as a husband. But it is lucky for every craftsman and labourer. For we ordinarily call a person's trade his 'mother.' And what else would having intercourse with her mean if not to be occupied with and earn one's living from one's art? It is also lucky for every demagogue and public figure. For a mother signifies one's native country. And just as a man who follows the precepts of Aphrodite when he makes love completely governs the body of his obedient and willing partner, the dreamer will control all the affairs of the city.
someone needs to re-edit that image, replacing the crappy "early greek philosophy" penguin volume with McKirahan's "Philosophy Before Socrates" (which contains the brunt of all presocratic fragments and exegesis), and the select works of plato and aristotle included in the image with Hackett's collected edition of Plato and Oxford's collected works of Aristotle also >read the republic and then read metaphysics what
read all of aristotle's works on logic and general science (not biology) before touching metaphysics
