For the Honorary Eleatic

You enter the conference room and see an old man sorting through a box of things. The room is fairly large and cluttered; clearly the exhibit is not ready for public viewing yet. All the same, you hope to learn something interesting from the man.

After a short while, he notices you and walks over to introduce himself...

Hello and welcome to the most insightful and relevant exhibit in this temple! At least, I hope it will be once it is completed. My boasting is just an attempt at humour, you'll have to forgive me. Although, perhaps by aiming for greatness I can ensure that something notable is achieved here.

Anyway, as you can see the place is a bit of a mess. I was invited to help the temple set up an exhibit on necessity and motion, mostly because of my interest in Diodorus Cronos. I believe he knew the truth of such matters and was himself an Eleatic philososopher. Sadly, he was largely forgotten to time and robbed of his proper standing. Perhaps in crafting this exhibit I can raise him back up into the ranks of the honored Eleatics.

My immediate goal is to set up a few different exhibits detailing his life and works. There will need to be an exhibit about the Master Argument and Diodorus' understanding that whatever is possible is necessary in the big picture. I also want to make an exhibit detailing his thoughts on motion and change, in particular his adoption of Zeno's approach to the subject. Finally, I'll prepare a room in honour of his life, detailing who he was and how his ideas may be weaved into the Whole of Eleatic philosophy to provide us with a deeper understanding of life and determinacy.

Yet despite all those plans, there's little to show you today. Perhaps you would like me to speak further about these topics, or meet with another member of the team? Otherwise, I can also direct you to our more general exhibits on Change, which immediately follow on from the exhibits on Distinction...

You consider what the man has said, before...

Choices:

  1. Ask about motion and change...
  2. Ask about the Master Argument and necessity...
  3. Visit a nearby office, where another member of the team is working...
  4. Thank the professor for his time and move on to the general exhibits...
