30 The moving immaterial bodies are the celestial bodies. Materiality and immateriality are relative properties in Proclus: 'immaterial by comparison to the changeable matter' (Ms pros ten metabUtSn hulen), the sublunary are truly 'enmattered' (enula), in Tim. 46,18-20. Only the supracosmic entities, such as soul, and the intelligibles are immaterial in an absolute sense. Such immateriality, however, refers to the gross matter of bodies, not to matter as the substrate power of the universe. R. Sorabji, MSM, 114-16, alleges among other difficulties for Proclus' treatment of immateriality that he sometimes exploits a different non-relative sense of'immaterial' as 'lacking in prime matter'.

It has already been said that something connected with this follows from the saying that if there is an interval naturally remaining in the same location there will be an unlimited number of places, and place will change its place, and there will be a place of place, and there will be many places coinciding.
