"Not four," said Iarchas, "but five."
"And how can there be a fifth," said Apollonius,
"alongside of water and air and earth and fire ?"
"There is the ether", replied the other,
"which we must regard as the stuff of which gods are made;
for just as all mortal creatures inhale tbe air,
so do immortal and divine natures inhale the ether."
Apollonius again asked which was the first of the elements,

"All are simultaneous, for a living creature is not born bit by bit."
"Am I," said Apollonius, "to regard
the universe as a living creature?"
"Yes," said the other, "if you have a sound knowledge of it,
for it engenders all living things."
