No Idea of abstract Substance.       §16. By the complex Idea of extended, figured, coloured, and all
other sensible Qualities, which is all that we know of it, we are as
far from the Idea of the Substance of Body, as if we knew nothing at
all: Nor after all the acquaintance and familiarity, which we imagine
we have with Matter, and the many Qualities Men assure themselves
they perceive and know in Bodies, will it, perhaps, upon examination
be found, that they have any more, or clearer, primary Ideas belonging
to Body, then they have belonging to immaterial Spirit.
Locke Hum II, 23, §16, p. 306
