Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a verse in Manichaean Kephalaia that mentions about the food that people gather together, so that they might eat it and have it enter into the body. The food breaks into five products. The first product is that which comes out of the human being in amazement, rises in the Mind, and comes out of all the limbs - it is without measure. The second is that which comes out of the human being in sound and word. The third is that which leaps from them in power and diligence. The fourth is that which is produced in the pleasure of desire between male and female. The fifth is that which is made and formed in the flesh and is produced and issues from them - this is this corporeal product.

Keywords: Manichaean Kephalaia; corporeal product
