generally in Men and Women that are not either Heroically good or stupidly and beastly naught a kind of shame and aversation in the very naming of these things that it is a signe that the soul of man doth in its own judgement find it self here in this condition of the body as I may so speak in a wrong box and hath a kind of presage and conscience that better and more noble things belong unto it ese why should it be troubled at its own proclivity to that which is the height and flower of the pleasure of the body as they that are given to this folly do professe {non-Roman} {non-Roman} {non-Roman} {non-Roman} {non-Roman} {non-Roman} {non-Roman} {non-Roman} {non-Roman} {non-Roman} To this sense What life what sweet without the golden tie Of Venus dead to this streight let me die But that there is a naturall shame of these acts and the propension to them that story of Typhon in Diodorus Siculus is no obscure argument For when he had murdered his brother Osiris that he might more sacramentally bind to him for his future help and security his twenty foure Accomplices in this act he hew'd the body of his brother into so many peices but was fain to fling the {non-Roman} {non-Roman} {non-Roman} {non-Roman} {non-Roman} his Pudendum into the river they every one being unwilling to take that for their share So much aversation is there naturally from these obscenities that even those that are otherwise execrably wicked have some sense of it But I do not speak this as if Marriage it self were a sinne as well as whoredome and adultery for questionlesse it is permitted to the soul in this case shee 's in But if she be not monstrous and degenerate she cannot but be mindfull that she is made for something farre better Observ. 33. To this observation thou answerest like a man with reason and generosity and with a well beseeming wit how unlike to thy self art thou here Anthroposophos Observ. 34. I perceive by thy answer to this observation thou art not at all acquainted with Ramus what ere thou art with the Schoolmen but I passe over this and come to what is of more moment Page 71. line 19. This is one of your three designes Yes it is one of those three designs I tax'd you for in the beginning of my Observations And here I make it good out of your own text Anthroposophia pag. 33. line 1. These are your words And now Reader Arrige aures come on without prejudice and I will tell thee that which never hitherto hath been discovered What can be more plain if you will but prick up your eares and attend to what you say your self But now I have discovered that this is but a boast of yours concerning a known Notion among the Christian Platonists you begin to pluck in your eares and confesse your self a Plagiary In the rest of your answer you do but teach your Grannam to crack nuts I go on Magicus to the next Observ. 35. As a flame of one candle can light a thousand candles more Your answer then to this Observation is this That the soul is propagated as light is from light That there is a multiplication without decision or division But for thine and the Readers fuller satisfaction I shall answer thee here as thou somewhere demandest in the verse of Spencer but in the reason and sense of More out of these four Stanzaes in my Canto of the Preexistency of the Soul Wherefore who thinks from Souls new Souls to bring The same let presse the sunne beams in his fist And squeeze out drops of Light or strongly wring The Rain-bow till it die his hands well prest Or with uncessant industry persist Th' intentionall species to mash and bray In marble morter till he has exprest A Soveraine eye-salve to discern a Fay As easily as the first all these effect you may Ne may queint Similes this fury damp Which say that our souls propagation Is as when lamp we lighten from a lamp Which done withouten diminution Of the first light shews how the soul of man Though indivisible may another rear Imparting life But if we rightly scan This argument it cometh nothing neere To light the lamp 's to kindle the sulphureous gear No substance new that act doth then produce Onely the oyly atomes't doth excite And wake into a flame But no such use There is of humane Sperm For our free sprite Is not the kindled seed but substance quite Distinct there from If not Then bodies may So changed be by Nature and Stiffe fight Of hungry stomachs that what earst was clay Then hearbs in time it self in sence may well display For then our Soule can nothing be but bloud Or nerves or brains or body modifyde Whence it will follow that cold stopping crud Hard mouldy cheese dry nuts when they have rid Due circuits through the heart at last shall speed Of life and sense look thorough our thin eyes And view the Close wherein the Cow did feed Whence they were milk'd grosse Py-crust will grow wise And pickled Cucumbers sans doubt Philosophize Observ. 37. Bid adiew to thy reputation Mastix Well now I perceive that thou thinkest that thou hast hit the nail on the head indeed But all that thou dost or canst collect from what is in my Preface to the Canto concerning the sleep of the Soul is but this that whether we see or imagine that both of these are but the very Energie of the Soul and that the Soul doth not nor can perceive any thing immediately but her own Energie But what of all this It doth not thence follow that the inward outward sense is all one but only unitate genericâ no more then if I should say that to be an Animal is but to have corporeal substance life and sense it would thence follow that an horse and a man are all one Look thee now Magicus how I have passed through this huge Mound and Bulwark of thine with as much ease and stilnesse as a gliding Spirit through a Mud-wall I will onely look back and laugh at thee Magicus for a man of no Logick But if any man doubt whether thou saist blind men see in their sleep it is apparent that thou doest For in thy Anthroposophia Page 40. line 1. thou saist That the visible power is not destroyd as is plain in the dreams of blind men Here if thou knowst what thou saist thou arguest from the effect to the cause from the operation to the faculty but is the operation of the Visive faculty for thou dost barbarously call it visible any thing else but seeing therefore thou dost plainly assert that blind men see in their sleep It would be well if they could walk in their sleep too for then they would scarce have any losse of their eyes Observ. 38. Magicus I do not altogether contemn the Symboles and Signatures of nature but I believe that Euphrasia or Eye-bright that hath the
