therefore he contradicted him with a Syllogism of the
second figure of the fourth Mode, thus:

Some Beasts are not wise,

|And if any should like the world I have made,
and be willing to be my subjects, they may imagine themselves such, and they are such—I mean
in their minds, fancies or imaginations. But if they cannot endure to be subjects, they may
create worlds of their own and govern themselves as they please.
