Please post some comments on the reading by Tuesday night. The following questions are just ideas. You don’t have to address them specifically.
What is meteorology? How does the cosmos work in this model? How might astrology and alchemy fit into this scientific scheme? Think of the larger mechanical structure of the cosmos. What does it look like? How does it compare to Plato’s vision? Water strained through ashes is salt? What is he talking about? Color theory? Matter theory?
Somebody try to put a picture in a comment. I want to know if it will work.
