The elementary principles and rudiments of the animal solids admit of infinite variety in their original contexture and composition, from whence arise all the differences of constitutions, strength, genius, temperaments, pallions, sympathies, antipathies, idiosyncrasies, ÍS*. in both sexes, and in the individuals of each sex. From hence it follows, that every person, by virtue of the original structure of his solids, becomes endow d with a particular degree of strength and moving force, &c. which may be call'd natural or constitutional to each person, in the regular exercise and government of which moving force, in the several stages of life, consists the health and longevity of every animal. Thua if the moving force is suffer'd to rise too high above its natural standard, the animal wilkhave its growth unduly accelerated, and arrive the sooner at its maturity and dissolution, and be more subject withal to diseases of the acute, inflammatory kind. And, on the contrary, if the moving force is not duly exerted, but suffer'd to sink below the balance of nature, the solids, will be hindered from developing and unfolding duly, and the animal arrive the later at its full growth, and final dissolution, but be more subject to diseases of the chronic kind; so that between these two extremes, of too great, and too small motion or exercise, lies the true golden mean, and path that leads to the temple of health and longevity. 16. The whole moving force, whereby the animal fluids become at first put into a state of motion, heat, fluidity, tíc. and continued therein, is intrinsically and wholly owing to the animal solids ; the fluids having no tendency or principle of motion in themselves, but being wholly passive, are moved, attenuated, and secreted by the innate elasticity, and mo...
