Stran 38 - Religion encourages the assurance, that, if we " train up a child in the way he should go, when he is old he will not depart from it.
Stran 1 - Tf we follow the course of the nerves, we find that they are prolonged to the brain, and end in the gray matter, where they again come in contact with a large quantity of blood-vessels. As the two series of nerves are not immediately connected in the brain, it follows, according to the laws of voltaic action that another battery exists there, which may be termed the central battery.
Stran 57 - ... occurs, and during the further transformation, the elements of starch be present a'nd enter into the new products, we shall obtain an additional quantity of choleic acid, as well as a certain amount of carbonic acid gas. That is to say — that if the elements of proteine and starch, oxygen and water being also present, undergo transformation together and mutually affect each other, we obtain, as the product of this metamorphosis, urea, clxilcic acid, ammonia, and carbonic acid, and besides these,...
Stran 148 - M. Winkler, of Leipsic, testified, that " the first time he tried the Leyden experiment he found great convulsions by it in his body ; and that it put his blood into great agitation, so that he was afraid of* an ardent fever, and was obliged to use refrigerating medicines. He also felt a heaviness in his head, as if a stone lay upon it, and twice it gave him a bleeding at the nose.
Stran 22 - When a man receives an impression, it is not evanescent, passing immediately away, but it is retained in the system to regulate future actions. Now, in voltaic constructions, it is not difficult to produce an action which shall influence future motions, and thus exhibit the effects of memory.
Stran 148 - Leyden, of much eminence, said that "he felt himself struck in his arms, shoulders, and breast, so that he lost his breath; and it was two days before he recovered from the effects of the blow and the terror ; adding, that he would not take a second shock for the kingdom of France.
Stran 38 - Man, at all times, and in all re* gions, has believed in his immortality. Now that which is mortal can have no relation with that which gives to man his immortality. That which is infinite must not be limited ; time must not be confounded with eternity, matter with space, the body with the soul, nor material actions with God. Electro-biology, then, leads us no less to infer, than religion commands us to believe, that "the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
Stran 148 - he felt himself struck in his arms, shoulders, and breast, so that he lost his breath, and was two days before he recovered from Hie effects of the blow and the terror.
