SOCRATES: But if there are three feet this way and three feet that way, the whole space will be three times three feet?
SOCRATES: We have certainly, as would seem, assisted him in some degree to the discovery of the truth; and now he will wish to remedy his ignorance, but then he would have been ready to tell all the world again and again that the double space should have a double side.
SOCRATES: And how many times larger is this space than this other?
SOCRATES: And are there not here four equal lines which contain this space?
And if this is the proper name, then you, Meno's slave, are prepared to affirm that the double space is the square of the diagonal?
SOCRATES: And does not this line, reaching from corner to corner, bisect each of these spaces?
SOCRATES: Has not each interior line cut off half of the four spaces?
SOCRATES: And how many spaces are there in this section?
"Surely infinity of space is large enough for a poor little projectile to walk through without fear.
Indeed, I think that this meteorite, which, had it struck the projectile, would have much embarrassed us, will give us the means of deciding what our position in space is."
Nicholl, as an economical man, put out the gas, now useless, and whose brilliancy prevented any observation of the inter-planetary space.
Her mountains, her plains, every projection was as clearly discernible to their eyes as if they were observing it from some spot upon the earth; but its light was developed through space with wonderful intensity.
