Platos fire

And of the organs they first contrived the eyes to give light, and the principle according to which they were inserted is as follows. So much of fire as would not burn, but gave gentle light, they formed into a substance akin to the light of everyday life, and the pure fire which is within us and related to it they made to flow through the eyes in a stream smooth and dense, compressing the whole eye and specially the center part, so that it kept out everything of a coarser nature and allowed to pass only its pure element.
