22. Yeshua saw little children who are being suckled. He says to his Disciples: These little children who are being suckled are like those who enter the Sovereignty. || They say to him: Shall we thus by becoming little children enter the Sovereignty? || Yeshua says to them: When you make the two one, and you make the inside as the outside and the outside as the inside and the above as the below, and if you establish the male with the female as a single unity so that the man will not act masculine and the woman not act feminine, when you establish an eye in the place of an eye and a hand in the place of a hand and a foot in the place of a foot: an image in the place of an image!—then shall you enter [the Sovereignty].

22. Yeshúa vio a niños que están mamando. Dice a sus discípulos: Estos niños que maman se asemejan a los que entran en la soberanía. || Le dicen: ¿Así al convertirnos en niños entraremos en la soberanía? || Yeshúa les dice: Cuando hagáis de los dos uno, y hagáis el interior como el exterior y el exterior como el interior y lo de arriba como lo de abajo, y si establezcáis el varón con la mujer como una sola unidad de tal modo que el hombre no se comporte (como) masculino y la mujer no se comporte (como) femenina, cuando establezcáis un ojo en el lugar de un ojo y una mano en el lugar de una mano y un pie en el lugar de un pie: ¡una imagen en el lugar de una imagen!—entonces entraréis en [la soberanía].

3NB the introduction here of this most important Greek loan-word, which plays a pivotal role in both Thomas and Philip (e.g. Th 84 and Ph 30). Here is Liddell & Scott's (Biblio.22) entry for εικων:

I.1. a likeness, image, portrait, Herodotus, Aeschylus; I.2. an image in a mirror, Euripides, Plato; II. a semblance, phantom, Euripides, Plato, etc.; an image in the mind, Euripides, Plato, etc.; III. a similitude, simile, Aristotle, Plato.

This is the cornerstone of the extraordinary idealistic metaphysic found in Thomas and Philip: all of our experiences are essentially imagery rather than materialistic perceptions. See ‘Angel, Image and Symbol(Ángel, imagen y símbolo).
