Suppose it be divided into two what will be betweene those two parts not body since it is all in the two halfes. But if it be said that it was first divided into smaller parts wee ask how came it so without less parts than those into which it was at first divided or els vacuum to succed in theire rome as they came a peices. Suppose the first matter were divided as small as sand then divide one of those sands a third sand cannot succed twixt 'em before they be at some distance unles there might be some smaler matter to run in & keepe out vacuum but to affirme this is to say the first matter had very little parts in it before it was divided. But againe if now matter is divided two parts of matter of the least size. were seperateing & distant one from another the space & halfe Continue reading…
