2 This motion is not continued by a force imprest because that force must be communicated from the mover into the moved either by Some corporeall efflux or incorporeall one or nothing. if by corporeall attomes we are still at a loss how those attomes must continue theire one motion. if by an incorporeall efflux it must be by either spirit or some quality if by a spirit how comes the spirit to be so easly united to the body & not to slip through it & when united to it how comes the spirits to cease so soone & the spirit to leave it & hence every little attome must have soules in store to cast away uppon every body they meete with. if a quality then qualitas transmigrat de subjecto in subjectum. & this quality cannot be the motion of the mover since it & the mover are seperated at once from the thing moved. In a word how can that give a power of moveing which it selfe hath not.
