Page 531 - The third sub-case remains, namely, that the power is always existing around the sun and through infinite space, whether secondary bodies be there to be acted upon by gravitation or not : and not only around the sun, but around every particle of matter which has existence.

Page 6 - held an opinion, almost amounting to conviction, in common, I believe,. with many other lovers of natural knowledge, that the various forms under which the forces of matter are made manifest have one common origin; in other words, are so directly related and mutually dependent, that they are convertible, as it were, into one another, and possess equivalents of power in their action.

Moreover, gravitation is not assumed to be a dual power, and in them only as yet have such removals been observed by experiment or conceived by the mind. The second sub-case, or that of a new or another form of power, is also one which has never been imagined by others, in association with the theory of gravity. I made some endeavours, experimentally, to connect gravity with electricity, having this very object in view (Phil.
Page 460 - ... up in the sun a power having no previous existence. As respects gravity, the earth must be considered as inert, previously, as the sun ; and can have no more inducing or affecting power over the sun than the sun over it : both are assumed to be without power in the beginning of the case ; — how then can that power arise by their mere approximation or co-existence ? That a body without force should raise up force in a body at a distance from it, is too hard to imagine ; but it is harder still,...
