But they,
that not like this,
may suppose light any other
corporeal emanation... or aethereal spirit...
or what else they can imagine proper for this purpose...
let every man here take his fancy, only
whatever light be, I suppose
it consists of
rays.
They,
that will,
may suppose it
an aggregate of var-
ious peripatetic qualities.
Others may suppose it multitudes
of unimaginable small and swift corpuscles
springing from shining bodies
at great distances
one after
another...

Sir Isaac Newton, Royal Society 1675
