Nempe illa sunt principia intrinseca motus localis, sine quibus ne concipi quidem potest. . Observandum tamen est, motum ipsum seu mutationem illam localem, esse quamdam veluti relationem simultatis, scilicet ex termino a quo, & termino ad quem; quippe neuter esse potest seorsim, sed uterque coniunctim; ita ut dicat, vel locum primo relictum, cui succedit alius immediatus, tum primum, scilicet acquisitus; vel locum immediatum primo acquisitum, quem relictus immediate praecessit, & quo instanti acquiritur novus, prior relinquatur; igitur simultas illa est utriusque, id est desitionis unius, & acquisitionis alterius immediati, cum ordine essentiali ad locatum commune seu mobile, & exigentiam intrinsecam huiusmodi mutationis.
