— 173 —
Division of Beings into Bodies and Spirits proves not Space and Body the same.       §16. Those who contend that Space and Body are the same, bring
this Dilemma. Either this Space is something or nothing; if nothing be
between two Bodies, they must necessarily touch; if it be allowed to
be something, they ask, whether it be Body or Spirit? To which I
answer by another Question, Who told them, that there was, or
could be nothing, but solid Beings, which could not think; and
thinking Beings that were not extended? Which is all they mean
by the terms Body and Spirit.
