This Greek Stuff is Getting Scary

This Greek stuff I'm proofreading is really getting freaky. We open the book, more or less at random, and see the following:

For that which is called essence in the primary sense must not be
a shadow of being, but have the fulness of being. And being is
fulfilled when it has the form of thinking and living. So
thinking, living and being are all together in what is real. If
then it is being, it is also intellect, and if it is intellect,
it is also being, and the thinking and the being go together.
Thinking therefore is many and one. That, then, which is not like
this cannot be thinking. And as we go over things individually,
there is man and thought of man, and thought of horse, and horse,
and thought of righteousness, and righteousness. All things then
are double, and the one is two, and again the two come together
into one. But the Good is not one of all these things, nor is it
the product of all the twos; it is not two at all. But how the
twos come from the One has been discussed elsewhere.

Now what I want to know is, how did horses get into this?
