I forget who it was that first posed this idea, but I remember hearing about it in my “Gender and Sexuality in the Greco-Roman Era” class. One of the great Greek philosophers came up with it, and it totally explained homosexuality, because sometimes the person you were originally attached to was the same sex. I enjoy this story. :)
This is seen in Plato’s “Symposium.” It can be found during the speech given by Plato’s characterization of Aristophanes which you can read here.
Haymitch skirts along the edge of the cliff as if trying to figure something out. His foot dislodges a pebble and it falls into the abyss, apparently gone forever. But a minute later, as he sits to rest, the pebble shoots back up beside him. Haymitch stares at it, puzzled, and then his face takes on a strange intensity. He lobs a rock the size of his fist over the cliff and waits. When it flies back out and right into his hand, he starts laughing.
