43 For sight, the necessary medium is air or water in a state of actual transparency, which state of actual transparency Aristotle equates with light. Light in his physics does not travel (he berates Empedocles for his idiocy in thinking it does): it is a state of air or water, the state in which it is actually transparent so that things can be seen through it. More formally, light is the actuality of the transparent qua 38 M.

Barnes replaced Smith’s ‘the activity of mind or intellectual apprehension’ by ‘thinking and reflecting’. 33 In Hicks, Smith and Theiler the singular αὐτό becomes the plural ‘themselves’. The singular should stand in the English because τὸ θεωρεῖν in mortal humans is the intermittent exercise of the dispositional understanding called τὸ νοεῖν: they are one and the same state at two levels of actuality.
