Whither the least globuli can continue always next the ☉ & yet come always from it to cause light & whither when the ☉ is obscured the motion of the first Element must cease (& so whither by his hypothesis the ☉ can be obscured) & whither upon the ceasing of the first elements motion the Vortex must move slower. Whither some of the first Element comeing (as he confesseth that hee might find out a way to turne the Globuli about their one axis to grate the 3d El{ement} into wrathes like screws or cockle shells) immediately from the poles & other vortexes into all the parts of our vortex would not impel the Globuli so as to cause a light from the poles & those places from whence they come.
