pornscriptions:

‘In Timaeus, Plato characterizes the divine sperma as that which imparts the worthy, discerning, and, hence, immortal part of each human being. This sperma is immaterial, of course, being consistent with Platonic dualism. In Stoic thought, the divine sperma is absolutely material as it is “the prime matter of all bodies,” constructing the universe from that which it is itself. In both medical texts and Aristotle, human semen contains pneuma as the generative element, a “self-moving source of the animal.” In Stoic cosmology, logos comprises the divine seed. This seminal logos not only crafts the universal body but also drives all causes and events.’
