Plato is probably the source of this "paradoxical" interpretation of
Herclitus. According to Plato, Heraclitus maintains that nothing retains its
identity for any time at all:
 "Heraclitus, you know, says that everything moves on and that nothing is at
rest; and, comparing existing things to the flow of a river, he says that
you could not step into the same river twice" (*Cratylus *402A).

A very Brustian topic, with shades of Paarfi's mythographer-friend. "The
first time I met Paarfi of Roundwood..."
