The main points seem to be tolerably clear; they are as follows: The surface of the moon as we see it is that which was formed when that body, passing from the state of fluidity from heat, formed a solid crust.
These facts bear out the conclusion that the fluidity of the heated stone depends in considerable measure on the water which is contained, either in its fluid or vaporous state, between the particles of the material.
It need not be supposed that the rock beneath these countries, which when forced out became lava, was necessarily in the state of perfectfluidity before it was forced through the fissures.
The elasticity and fluidity of the organic form manifests itself, within the type, freely in all directions, and to an unlimited extent.
The heat thus combined is the cause of the fluidity of the water.

I have said that the Bible, which informs us of a universal ocean preceding the existence of land, also gives indications of a still earlier period of igneous fluidity or gaseous expansion.
At first sight, it might seem as if, in the fluidity of these successive waves, everything is indeterminate.

It was this want of organization, this looseness and fluidity of the new movement, that made it penetrate through every class of society.
Now this superior fluidity in air indicates the least degree of adherence possible between its constituting parts, and supposes them of such a figure as only to be touched at one point.

But, as a matter of fact, the fluidity of the ocean plays an important part in the phenomenon, as does also the elasticity of the earth.

Thus “fluidity of nothing” is a phrase without meaning.
If the illusion in trying to name and define mental states is due to their fluidity and privacy, by the same token the same treatment of physical objects, which Bergson regards as valid treatment, is in fact equally illusory.

It may be thought, however, that the igneous fluidity of the internal part of the globe is too mighty and improbable a conclusion to be based upon the increase of temperature, observed only to the depth of two or three thousand feet.
To prove the original igneous fluidity of the globe, we might have adopted another course of argument.
