For example, what exactly did Empedocles mean univocally by the term "Sphairos"? " (Frs. 27, 27a, 28) Perhaps he did not use the term univocally. More important than a long inconclusive philological note is that he uses the word "Sphairos" as a structural and functional term to indicate an all-encompassing and all-pervasive presence. It its structural relation to other terms in the fragments is that of a unit indicating wholes or totalities, then how do the other terms correlate functionally with it and each other?
It is like the primal material roots of fire, air, water, and earth. Like them, it is a permanent entity - born and born again. " Because Empedocles intends a totally natural world, the daimon, like porosity, EMPEDOCLES 43 is not a solution. Because it is the destiny of the daimon to be reborn and, unfortunately, to be reborn in the ages of Strife, must it also be a "root of suffering"? Thus, Arnold's suggestion is correct for an age of Strife. However, when it is reborn in an age of Love, must it also be a "root of pleasure"?
The unwearying winds which lay waste the cultivated fields are checked and, implicitly, farming and harvesting are renewed. Similarly, illness and old age are countered with drugs and, however accomplished, the dead are made to live again. Structural and functional analyses show that the fragment is about reversing destruction, turning devastating weather, illness, dying, and death into construction, nurturing weather, health, and life. Thus, based on structural analysis of the references and functional analysis of the purposes, a hypothesis may be offered for dealing with these remarks about human illness and resurrection: even though the reversals to be brought about are done magically, the overall purpose is to emphasize the usefulness of knowledge and the powers imparted by knowledge.
