some may say, that as the eye cannot see a whole colour, so neither can it see a whole sound, it cannot see in the air a whole sound, and i answer, that nothing can see in the air a whole colour, because it can see no sides, and because any thing that can see the sides of an object, is more than that object. for what is a circle? but a boundary to an object which hath no sides, and seeing there is no sides, how can an eye see a circle of the same colour at a distance from it, by reason it is no circle, but just as much an object as any other?
and though they should any way incounter with one another, yet those that are made for spirits, and that have but one spirit to dwell in, doe not feel one another so, as those which are made after the other way. and those that have a number of spirits to reside in them, have no power of sensation to any thing but that spirits are, and of the orders of their ghostly fathers and mother, and those that have more or lesse to dwell in their body and spirits, do feel as thickly as those that have many spirits in them. and since the spirits of humane creatures are in a certaine manner (as we found by experience) diuers, the more they have in them, the more they tend to some particular intelligence, or knowledge, so as i may say, in wild fowles, swans, eagles, and beasts, there is but one spirit in them, and it is more active in them, then in humaine creatures. so where there are many people in one house, there is a greater familiarity betweene them than where there is more distance; but where there is an infinite number in one room, the fancies of the spirits are divided amongst the many, and they think themselves seperated from one another.
my author cannot therefore give such an instance of sounds that are common to both sense and reading, as read by sense, and heard by sense, are words, and those words said or sung; but he gives such as may be called sound without sense, as that sound of thunder, or the winds, the sounding of voices, or instruments of music that are fancied sound, and so they are not sensual sound; as is that sound of water, or of rain, which are sensual, though no one be sensible that doth perceive it; and that sound of particles that fly about, when the air is full, as if the sky were a vast burning furnace; and also the swoonding, roaring, and noise of stones that drop into water, or of firing; and the lowsing of bees, when the weather is hot: and these are not sensual sounds to the sense, but are sensual sounds to the hearing,
but are not distinct sounds to the sense, and so are not sensible sounds either. again; the murmuring of the wind against the lee-side of a house in a high windy night, is as an audible alphabet; as much sensual, to all that hear it, as that sounds that are heard in the aire of a watch-tower in a high windy night, is sensual to those that hear it, and are sensible of it, but it is not an alphabet to the sense.
again, words are not sensual sounds to the sense, as they are to the hearing, they may be imitats to the sense, of what they mean to be; as the words of a poem may be imitated to the hearing by sounds of such a tune, that the sense thereof may be heard; and they may be imitats to the hearing, and sound of such words, as that the sense may be heard; and they may be imitats to the hearing of every other sound, which to any other is not apparent; and they may be imitats to the hearing of such as are raised to the air in the hearing. but as for inanimate sounds, every one is sensible of them, and there are not words to be imitated to them, which is another sense.
