>and then, like, he made strips of soul that he cut up and that was like the soul of the universe and shit and it controls the planets lol
Why the fuck am I bothering to read the Timaeus? Is Plato's cosmology worth anything at all? This is Myth of Er tier.
Buttmad Socratist detected.
Timaeus is a Socratic dialogue by Plato in which Timaeus describes the principles of cosmology. So far there have been some interesting points raised - for example an argument for the unique singularity of the universe, and an interesting account of space, being, and becoming - but it is held down by a bizarre speculative account of the ordering of the rotations of the planets and the creation of the universe.
