"F. Mallebranch, with the Spirit of a Cartesian, denies that a Man who thinks seriously on the Matter, can doubt but the Essence of the Mind consists altogether in Thought, as that of Matter does in Extension; and that according to the various modifications of Thought, the Mind sometimes wills, sometimes imagines, &c. as, according to the various Modifications of Extension, Matter is sometimes Water, sometimes Wood, Fire, &c."
