First, it is easy to observe that although bodies are felt by means of their solidity, the feeling doesn’t resemble the solidity. A man with no feeling in one hand has as perfect an idea of impenetrability when he •sees that hand supported by the table as when he •feels the table with the other hand. An object pressing on any part of our bodies meets with resistance; and that resistance, through the motion it gives to the nerves and animal spirits, conveys a certain sensation to the mind; but it doesn’t follow that there are any resemblances among the sensation, the motion, and the resistance.
