But one thing I forgot all this while, which is, That
although thoughts are the natural language of souls,
yet by reason souls cannot travel without Vehicles,
they use such language as the nature and propriety of
their Vehicles require, and the Vehicles of those two
souls being made of the purest and finest sort of air, and
of a humane shape; this purity and fineness was the
cause that they could neither be seen nor heard by any
humane Creature; when as, had they been of some
grosser sort of Air, the sound of that Airs language
would have been as perceptible as the blowing of Zephyrus.
|And if any should like the world I have made,
and be willing to be my subjects, they may imagine themselves such, and they are such—I mean
in their minds, fancies or imaginations. But if they cannot endure to be subjects, they may
create worlds of their own and govern themselves as they please.
