Page 16 - ... and being irretrievably swallowed up by its soft matter." Now it does not seem to be as well known as it should be that no such thing as a marine Dinosaurian has yet been discovered, and that the numerous...
Page 28 - ... rotation. Hence the viscosity assumed by Delaunay, to produce the effect he attributes to it, must be more than ten million million million times the viscosity of water. How much more may be easily estimated with some degree of precision from Helmholtz's mathematical solution of the problem of finding the motion of a viscous fluid contained in a rigid spherical envelope urged by periodically varying couples.* The most interesting part of the application of this solution to the hypothetical problem...

Page 3 - ... of Logic and Mathematics. Where is any consideration of this question to be found ? If I may be allowed to say more on a subject to which I have devoted a good deal of time and thought, I would make a few observations on this very important and yet very much neglected one. There is exact Science in two branches : the Analysis of the necessary Laws of Thought, and the Analysis of the necessary Matter of Thought. The necessary Matter of Thought, that without which we cannot think, consists of Space...
