And so forth on the other.

¶ Of the foure pryme qualytes, and what they are. ☞

[Page] FOure Pryme Qua­lytes, there be. That is to saye, moystenes, hotenes, drynes be two contrary [...]s. And therfore they maye no neyghe togyther withoute a meane, for the hotenesse on the one syde byndeth them togyther, and coldenes on the other syde. Also hotenes & coldenes are two contraryes, & therfore they maye not nyghe togyther, withoute a mene, for the moystnes on the one syde, byndeth them togyther. And drynes, on the other. Moystenes is cause of euery thycke Substaunce, and of euery swete taste. And there agayne drynes is cause of euerye thyn substaūce, and of euery sowre stynkynge [...]ast. And also hotenes is cause of euery red coloure, and lar­ge quantyte. There agayne colde­nes is cause of euery whyte coloure and lytle quantyte.

The Ayre moyste and hote. The fyre hote and drye. The Earth drye and colde. The Water colde and moyste. The Ayre & the Earth are two contraryes, and therfore they maye not neyghe togyther, but as fyre byndes thē on the one syde, betwene them. And the water on the other syde betwene them. Also Fyre and water, are two contraryes and therfore they maye not neyghe togyther, but as the Ayre betwene them byndes on the one syde. And the Earth betwene byndeth them togyther, on the other syde. The Fyre is sharpe, subtyll, and mona­ble. The Ayre is subtyll, monable, and corpulent, and dull. The Earth [Page] is corpulent and thycke. The Wa­ter is mouable, corpulent and dull. The Earth is corpulent, dulle, and vnmouable, ryght as an egge shell, Vyngose a thyn skyn. And ye sygne Vyngose the white, and in the myddes of the yolke, is a lytell tender hoole, ryght so the Fyre Vyngose the Ayre ten tymes more, and ten tymes. Than the Ayre Vyngose the Water .x. tymes more, and .x. tymes tymer than the water. The water Vyngose the Earth .x. tymes more, and .x. tymes tymer than the Earth. In the herte of the Earth is the senter of the worlde. That is to saye, the myddes poynt. And in euery Sente [...] is hell.
