whom nor the fame of god nor lightning’s stroke the crossbars at the gates of nature’s old substance is eternal this terror, then, this darkness of the mind, not sunrise with its flaring spokes of light, nor glittering arows of morning can disperse, but only Nature's aspect and her law, which, teaching us, hath this exordium: nothing from nothing ever yet was born for memmius mine who thou has willed to be

in their lone seeking for the road of life rivals in genius, or emulous in rank the whole of life but labors in the dark for just as children tremble o wretched minds of men, o blinded hearts in how great perils in what darks of life the paths of matter, its connections, weights, blows, clashings, motions, order, structure, shapes this darkness of the mind the lamps ablaze, the lights doth glitter not with gold which well perceived if thou will hold in mind then nature delivered from her haughty lord and forthwith free is seen to do all things herself and through herself of own accord o wretched minds of men, o blinded hearts in how great perils in what darks of life

along the void in these affairs divine delight takes hold through me hath been on every side laid bare discere credas of nature’s courses (the terrors of the brain) asunder flee (the ramparts of the earth) dispart away (and through the void entire) i see the movements (of the universe) rises to vision (the majesty of the gods) rises to vision good friend when death’s unvexed repose gets hold on man that mortal lives the mind with seeds so intertwined it holds dominion whose mind and intellect abides abides in life discere credas

under open skies the shining water if stars be out in heaven the shores of ether falls the constellations within the dark within the light mouth into mouth mirror unto mirror all the lures of love of love their flames and that old fury visits them again mouth into mouth mirror onto mirror i will unfold in verses sweeter

ocean stars, sun and moon awe of god in all lands harsh masters deemed almighty wretched men, wretched men fiery exultation annihilation mortalis corpore cretus, mortalibus born in time (mortal generation) born to die (fiery exhalation) world consumed (races of mankind) earth and fire (fading life behind) holy thought (idols of the gods) the world is not eternal in constant flux do all things seem occultations thou mayest deem the sudden slight of thunderbolt the fears of old mortal generation annihilation

this darkness of the mind nor flaring spokes of light nor boundaries deep in time with thee my guide animi ingratis vitam vexare sine ulla pausa atque infestis cogi saevire querellis, now come and unto thee i will unfold all wisdom truth speaking mouth discoveries divine of old the men were lords in honor, praise and eminent in goodly fame still anxious hearts torment the mind of lust and terror we all endeavor the world’s great vaults are mortal frames built in time memmius mine i have unraveled what remains the human race this darkness of the mind nor flaring spokes of light nor boundaries deep in time with thee my guide
