"B"Here are four Elements, and originall grounds of all cor- poreall things, Fire, Earth, V ater, Aire, of which all elementatcd inferiour bodies are compounded; not by way ofhcaping them up tc;_gether,but by tranfmutatiomand union ; and when they are de royed,they are refolved into Elements. For there is none of the fenlible Elements that is pure,but they are more or lefs mixed. and apt to be changed one into the other : Even as'Earth,beeorning dirty, and being diifolved, becomes Water, and the fame being rnadethick and hard, be- come Earth again ; but being evaporated through heat,pa(l`cth into Aire, and that being kindled. palleth into Fire , and this being extinguilhcd , returns back agalninto Aire , buebeing cooled again after its burning, becomes Earth, or Stone.ide Sulphur, and this is manifelled by Lightening : Plm alfo was ol’ that opinion,that Earth was ivhollychangcablgand that the fell ofthe Elements arechanged, as into this,fo into one :mo~ ther fucceffively. But it is the opinion ofthe fubtiller fore of Philofophers, that Earth is not changed, but rclented and mix- cd withpther Elements, which do diliolve it , and thatit re- turnsback into it (elf a ain. Now every one of the Elements hath two fpecilicall qu:5ities, the former whereof it retains as proper to it (elf, in the other, as a mean, it agrees with that which comes next afterit. For Fire is hot anddry, the Earth dry and cold, the VVater cold and moill, the Aire moili and hot. And fo after this manner the Elementsnocording to two contrary qualities, are contrary one to the other, as Fire to / Varcr, and Earth to Aire. Moreoventhe Elements areupon another account oppolire one to the other : For foine are heayy, as Earth an VVatcr, and others are light, as Aire and Fire. V/'hereforc the Stoiclrscalled the former pallives , but the latter aéiives.

Of the third Order are thoi`e Elements, which originally and ofthemfelvcs are not Elements, but are twice compounded, various, and changeable one into the other.

Alexander the Peripatcticke not going any further then his fenfes, and qualities, is ofthe opinion that thele pro- ceedfrom Elements, and their qualities, which haply might be fuppofed to be true, ifrhofe were of the fauie fpeeies; but many of the operations of the Stones agree neither if; mere, nor _/_iecit-. Therefore Plata, and his Sclrollers at- ttihgute thefe vertues to .Ide.s’:, the formers of things.

And although thefe Authors feem to thwart one the o-i ther, yet none of them, if they be rightly underliood,goes be- fide the truth: lince all their fayings are the farne in elfeéi in rnoli things.

There is therefore a wonderfull vettue, and operation in every Hearb, and Stone, but greater in a Star, beyond which, even from the governing I ntelligencies every thing receiveth, and obtains many things for it felt; efpecially from theSu- pream Caufe, with whom all things do mutually, and exafily correfpond, agreeing in an harmonious confent, as it were in I-lymnes,alw:|ies prailing the higheft Maker of all things,as by the three(ihild ren in the fiery furnace were all things called up. on to praife God with lingings.

So we read that the Ancients were wont often to receive fome divine, and wonderfull thing by certain naturall things : fo the [lone that is bred in the Apple of the eye of a Civet Cat, held under the tongue of aman, is faid to make him to divine, or prophelie : The fameis Selenites, the Moon Rome reported to do, fo they fay that the Images of Gods may be called up by the [lone called Anchitis, and that the Gholls of the dead may be, being called up, kept up by thc lione Synochitis. The like doth the Hearb Aglauphotis do, which is called Marmorites, growing upon the Marbles of Arabia, as faith Pliny, and the which Magicians ufe. Alfo there is an Heath called Rheangelida, which Magicians drink- ingof, can prophclie. Moreover there are fome Hearhs by which the dead are raifed to life ; whence Xfmrbur the Hillc- rian tels,that with acertain Hrarb called Balus, a young Dra- gon being killed, ,was made alive again, :tlfo that by the Etme a certain man of Ti6’um,whomia Dragon killed, was reliored to life : and 21164 reports,th.-at in Arabia accrtain man was by aeettatn Hearb reliored to life.

For asthe mind is taken up aiour, and wearied with cares, it fug- gefts itfelfro him that is alleep. I call that :t Dream here,which is cauled by the Cclelliall influences in the phantafiick fpirit, mind, or body, being all well difpofed. The rule of interpre- ting this is found amonglt Allrologers, in that part whichis wrote concerning quellions; but yet that is not lilfficient, be-- caufe thefe kind of Dreams come by ufe to divers men afrcrn divers manner, according to the divers quality, and dilpohti- ons of the phantaliiclt fpirit e wherefore there cannotbegiven onecommon rule to all lor the interpretation of Dreams.

The caufe therefore of this madnelk, if it be any thing within the body,is a melancholy humor, not ghge which they call black choller, which is fo obllinatc` and terrible a thing, that the violence of itisfaid by Phylitians, and Natural! Phylofophers, belidcs rnandnelé, which it doth in. duce, alfo to entice evill fpirits to_feize upon mens bodies. Therefore we nnderltand a melancholy humor here, to be a na- turall, and white eholler. For this,whcn it is llirred up,burns, and llirs up a madnefs conducing to knowled e, and divina- tion, efpecially if it be helped by any Celelliall influx, efpeci- ally of Snrrrm , who feeing he is cold, and dry, ae is 1 melan- choly humor, hath his influence upon it, increaE:th,and pre- ferveth it.

And this is Argdozler meaning in his hook of Problemes. By Melzmtholy, faithhe, fome men are made as it were divine, foretelling things to come,and foine men are made Poets. He faith all'o,that all men that were excellent in any Science. were forthe molk part melancholy. D¢meriru:,and~7~'I.zra atteft the fame,faying, that there were fome melancholy men, that had fuch excellent wits, that they were thought, and feemed to be rather divine then humane.So alfo there have been many melancholy men at firll rude, ignorant, and untra&able, as they fay,H4iod, fan, 7jmnicl.1nr,[`¢lcimnj'.r, Hommand Lucre- riru were, who on a fuddain were taken with a madnefs ,p and became Poets, and prophecled wonderfull, and divine things, which they themfelvcs fcarce underllood.
