الصفحة 38 - A mind just entering on the subject, may consider it difficult to think of the powers of matter independent of a separate something to be called the matter, but it is certainly far more difficult, and indeed impossible, to think of, or imagine, that matter independent of the powers.
الصفحة 33 - It seems probable to me, that God in the beginning formed matter in solid, massy, hard, impenetrable, movable particles, of such sizes and figures, and with such other properties, and in such proportion to space, as most conduced to the end for which He formed them; and that these primitive particles, being solids, are incomparably harder than any porous...
الصفحة 34 - ... the nature of things depending on them would be changed. Water and earth composed of old worn particles and fragments of particles, would not be of the same nature and texture now with water and earth composed of entire particles in the beginning. And therefore that nature may be lasting, the changes of corporeal things are to be placed only in the various separations and new associations and motions of these permanent particles...
الصفحة 42 - The view now stated of the constitution of matter would seem to involve, necessarily, the conclusion that matter fills all space, or, at least, all space to which gravitation extends, including the sun audits system; for gravitation is a property of matter dependent on a certain force, and it is this force which constitutes the matter. In that view matter is not merely' mutually penetrable, but each atom extends, so to say, throughout the whole of the solar system, yet always retaining its own centre...
الصفحة 33 - He formed them; and that these primitive particles, being solids, are incomparably harder than any porous bodies compounded of them, even so very hard as never to wear or break in pieces — no ordinary power being able to divide what God himself made one in the first creation.
الصفحة 41 - ... by preconceived notions. With respect to the mutual penetrability of the atoms, it seems to me to present in many points of view a more beautiful, yet equally probable and philosophic idea of the constitution of bodies than the other hypotheses, especially in the case of chemical combination. If we suppose an atom of oxygen and an atom of potassium about to combine and produce potash, the hypothesis of solid unchangeable impenetrable atoms places these two particles side by side in a position...
الصفحة 107 - ... point of rest made by each molecule of the air, determines the pitch, or note, so, in the theory of light, the frequency of the pulses, or number of impulses made on our nerves in a given time by the ethereal molecules next in contact with them, determines the...
الصفحة 42 - This view of the constitution of matter,' he continues, 'would seem to involve necessarily the conclusion that matter fills all space, or at least all space to which gravitation extends; for gravitation is a property of matter dependent on a certain force, and it is this force which constitutes the matter. In that view matter is not merely mutually penetrable; but each atom extends, so to say, throughout the whole of the solar system, yet always retaining its own centre of force.
الصفحة 98 - ... violet, and those in which it is intermediate, the intermediate colors. 4. That the molecules of material bodies and those of light exert a mutual action on each other, which consists in attraction and repulsion, according to some law or function of the distance between them ; that this law is such as to admit perhaps of several alternations or changes from repulsive to attractive force, but that when the distance is below a certain very small limit, it is always attracted up to actual contact...
الصفحة 34 - Particles, would not be of the same Nature and Texture now, with Water and Earth composed of entire Particles in the Beginning. And therefore, that Nature may be lasting, the Changes of corporeal Things are to be placed only in the various Separations and new Associations and Motions of these permanent Particles; compound Bodies being apt to break, not in the midst of solid Particles, but where those Particles are laid together, and only touch in a few Points.
