That darke colours seeme further of than light ones may be from hence that the beames loose little of theire force in reflecting from a white body because they are powerfully resisted thereby but a darke body by reason of the loosenes of its parts give some admission to the light & reflects it but weakly & so the reflection from whitenes will be sooner at the eye. or else because the whit sends beams with more force to the eye & givs it a feircer knock.
Coulors arise either from shaddows intermixed with light, or stronger & weaker reflection or \[arts of the body mixed with & carried away by light.
