Motion by a right
line naturally im­
poſſible.
Mundane bodies
moved in the be­
ginning in a right
line, and after­
wards circularly?
according to Plato.
* Thus doth he co­
vertly and modeſt­
ly ſtile himſelfe
throughout this
work.
A moveable be­
ing in a ſtate of
reſt, ſhall not move
unleſs it have an
inclination to ſome
particular place.
The moveable ac­
celerates its moti­
on, going towards
the place whither
it hath an inclina­
tion.
The moveable paſ­
ſing from reſt, go­
eth thorow all the
degrees of tardity.
The moveable doth
not accelerate, ſave
only as it approach­
eth nearer to its
term.
Nature, to intro­
duce in the move­
able a certain de­
gree of velocity,
made it move in a
right line.
SALV. I neither did, nor dare ſay, that it was impoſſible for
God or Nature to confer that velocity which you ſpeak of, imme­
diately; but this I ſay, that de facto ſhe did not doit; ſo that the
doing it would be a work extra-natural, and by confequence mi­
raculous.
