Abstract: The narrative of the myth of Er often seems diffcult to follow and understand, because the laws of spatial relations are being continuously bent or broken. The author claims that these inconsistencies have a symbolic meaning. Space is an image for the soul and spatial transformations refect the dynamics of contemplation in which the inner and the outer are transcended.
