Socrates in the caves

Chapter Text

Flowey
What’s LV stand for? Why, LOVE, of course! You want some LOVE, don’t you?

Socrates
No, I would not say I do.

Flowey
You don’t?

Socrates
I do not. If, as you say, that blue heart is my soul, is it then dissevered from my body?

Flowey
Yes, I suppose. But I don’t see…

Socrates
And would you not say that love is one of the bodily pleasures, like eating and drinking?

Flowey
Yes, but…

Socrates
And that, as a philosopher, I should only be concerned with the acquirement of knowledge?

Flowey
I suppose so.

Socrates
Would you also agree that knowledge is a matter of the soul, and love a matter of the body?

Flowey
Sure.

Socrates
Then should I not prefer to have my soul avoid love, and instead have my soul only be concerned with learning?

Flowey
You know what? Have fun. I’m outta here.
