And if, when the source of illumination moves away, the light that is produced in the air also disappears, there is nothing strange about that; for it is also the case that when fire moves away heat ceases to be produced in the air, the only difference being that in the case of light its passing out of existence, like its generation, is swift, or even instantaneous. e. that of substances) that that which is caused is coexistent with its cause, or let them concede that even God is not a creator of things and does not bring their essences into existence but only causes alteration in things which are co-everlasting [with himself].
In my opinion the second of these parallels should not even be worthy of consideration. For who is not aware that shadow is merely the privation of light? And privation in itself, as we showed a little earlier,52 is non-being. So who with any sense would claim that body in light is the cause and instigation of what is in itself non-being? Non-being does not come to be; generation is of being. Just because privation of light is referred to by a word, being called shadow or darkness, one should not at once assume that it is also a kind of [real] existent or form.
Non-being does not come to be; generation is of being. Just because privation of light is referred to by a word, being called shadow or darkness, one should not at once assume that it is also a kind of [real] existent or form. Deprivation of sight is also referred to by a word, being called blindness, and [a man or animal] that has maimed feet and is deprived of movement because of them is said to be lame, but nobody would say that blindness or lameness is a kind of form or [real] existent. So nor should one regard privation of light, even if it is called darkness or shadow, as a kind of form.
