Thought Formed Stone (The Creation and Manipulation of Signs)

“Some of thefe Marine Foffils are no other than as it were Shadows or fuperficial Repefentations of Sea Bodies…… And that fuch Marine Subftances are fometimes generated in Humane Bodies: For me it appears a far lefs Wonder, that Shells and other Marine Bodies fhould be produc’d in the Bowels of the Earth, than their Production in the Bodies of Men or Animals at Land. And that they have been fo found, is fufficiently attefted, both by Ancient and Modern Authors, of a Credit and Character beyond all Exception.”

Edward Llwyd To John Ray
