I shall not dispute how much Astronomers differ among themselves concerning the Number, Site, Motions, and Nature of the Heavens: Neither here undertake to compose such a strike, nor to censure, any Man’s judgment therein; forasmuch as at least, in this, they do many of them agree [That there is one supream Heaven and First Moveable, which by its own motion from East to West, accomplisheth its Revolution about the Earth, in the space of 24 hours; and causeth such a force of stupend Motion, in the bodies subordinate, that it manifestly carried with it, from East to West, whatsoever is betwixt it and the middle Region of Air].
Tis true, Kepler (the Lynceus of the last Age) denying (with Copernicus) such a First Moveable, makes the Starry Heaven to be supream, and immoveable:
And maintaineth, that the Earth, (called a planet by Pythagoras, and placed between the Sphaeres of Mars and Venus) performs by its own motion from West to East an entire rotation about its Axis, in the space of 24 hours, the Sun being placed in the Center of the World. Which supposed to (as indeed it is by the most Learned of this Age) yet I this doth the Starry Heavens perform the Office of the First Moveable, [That the same part of the Earth, by the motion of the whole body thereof, continually cometh into the Aspect of the New parts of the Stellified Heaven, whereby that part of the Earth shall be forthwith changed de novo, unless we deny it all power of operating thereupon.
