Σελίδα 61 - If a straight line meets two straight lines, so as to make the two interior angles on the same side of it taken together less than two right angles...
Σελίδα 399 - The fundamental conditions are : — 1. That aqueous vapour and carbon compounds are present in stellar or interplanetary space. 2. That these gaseous compounds are capable of being dissociated by radiant solar energy while in a state of extreme attenuation. 3. That...
Σελίδα 14 - Approach thou now the lap of earth, thy mother, the wide-extending earth, the ever-kindly ; A maiden soft as wool to him who comes with gifts, she shall protect thee from destruction's bosom. Open thyself, O earth, and press not heavily, be easy of access and of approach to him ; As mother with her robe her child, so do thou cover him, O earth...
Σελίδα 397 - ... be furnished by a theory, according to which the radiant energy which is now supposed to be dissipated into space and irrecoverably lost to our solar system, could be arrested and brought back in another form to the sun himself, there to continue the work of solar radiation.
Σελίδα 67 - ... is just as well known, if the Euclidean assumptions are true, as the geometry of any portion of this room. ... So that here we have real knowledge of something at least that concerns the Cosmos; something that is true throughout the Immensities and the Eternities.
Σελίδα 67 - ... future eternity. He knows, indeed, that the laws assumed by Euclid are true with an accuracy that no direct experiment can approach, not only in this place where we are, but in places at a distance from us that no astronomer has conceived ; but he knows this as of Here and Now ; beyond his range is a There and Then of which he knows nothing at present, but may ultimately come to know more.
Σελίδα 63 - Now, suppose that three points are taken in space, distant from one another as far as the sun is from a Centauri, and that the shortest distances between these points are drawn so as to form a triangle. And suppose the angles of this triangle to be very accurately measured and added together ; this can at present be done so accurately that the error shall certainly be less than one minute, less therefore than the five-thousandth part of a right angle. Then I do not know that this sum would differ...
Σελίδα 171 - Antennae }, in male filiform, moderately ciliated (1), basal joint elongate, without pecten. Labial palpi long, recurved, second joint thickened with dense scales, forming a short dense triangular projecting tuft towards apex beneath, terminal joint longer than second, slightly roughened anteriorly, acute.
Σελίδα 67 - ... properties as space and time everything was accurately known. The very constitution of those parts of it which are at an infinite distance from us, 'geometry upon the plane at infinity...
Σελίδα 67 - ... but he knows this as of Here and Now ; beyond his range is a There and Then of which he knows nothing at present, but may ultimately come to know more. So,, you see, there is a real parallel between the work of Copernicus and his successors on the one hand, and the work of Lobatchewsky and his successors on the other.
