Seite 19 - The colloidal is, in fact, a dynamical state of matter, the crystalloidal being the statical condition. The colloid possesses Energia. It may be looked upon as the probable primary source of the force appearing in the phenomena of vitality. To the gradual manner in which colloidal changes take place (for they always demand time as an element) may the characteristic protraction of chemico-organic changes also be referred.

Seite 16 - I think the facts leave no doubt that the very mightiest among the chemical forces are of electric origin.

Seite 28 - The natural philosophy of the inorganic kingdom, or mineral physiology, is concerned, in the first place, with what is generally called dynamics or physics, including the phenomena of ordinary motion, sound, temperature, radiant energy, electricity and magnetism. Dynamics, in the abstract, regards matter in general, without relation to species; chemis'm generates therefrom...
Seite 58 - But it is not to be -supposed that this medium is one uniform matter, but composed partly of the main phlegmatic body of ether, partly of other various ethereal spirits, much after the manner that air is compounded of the phlegmatic body of air intermixed with various vapours and exhalations.
