DK B 1&3, * Translated by Elpenor, * Greek Fonts, * Anaximander Resources
RINCIPLE and beginning ... of beings is the limitless ... where beings have their beginning, therein also have their end according to necessity; for they pay penalty and retribution to each other for their injustice in accordance with the arrangement of time.
ἀρχὴ ... τῶν ὄντων τὸ
ἄπειρον ... ἐξ ὧν δὲ ἡ γένεσίς ἐστι
τοῖς οὖσι͵ καὶ τὴν φθορὰν εἰς ταῦτα
γίνεσθαι κατὰ τὸ χρεών· διδόναι γὰρ
αὐτὰ δίκην καὶ τίσιν ἀλλήλοις τῆς
ἀδικίας κατὰ τὴν τοῦ χρόνου τάξιν.
Ἀθάνατον [...] καὶ ἀνώλεθρον.
Cf. XENOPHANES : God is totally different ||| ANAXAGORAS : Nous ||| PLATO : A nature of wondrous beauty, A moving image of eternity ||| DIONYSIUS THE AREOPAGITE : All-comprehending Smallness and Super-essential Identity
