Change is from contrary to contrary, so water will have to be either white or black. Let it be the first. e. dryness, will belong to F. e. fire, into water. This is because they possess contrary qualities: we saw in the first place that fire was black, then that it was dry, that water was moist, and then that it was white. e. ] The extremes, they say, no longer change into each other. For being extremes they have not anything further into which to change, but revert back to air and water. For if, they say, the extremes do not revert71 [to the means they come from] but keep changing further, the process of change will go on to infinity.

The Aldine editor completely overhauls the original lemmata of his MSS. He expands Philoponus’ truncated lemmata in such a way that all of them taken together would give a full text of GC; where the expanded lemmata incorporate several of the old truncated ones, he eliminates the division of argument and combines separate arguments into a single one under his new longer ‘lemma’, sometimes inserting connecting sentences in place of the old lemmata to make the argument run smoothly.
