I conclude with a question: If, as Descartes says, "the act whereby God now conserves [the world] is just the same as that by which he created it," (61) and if the total quantity of motion now has a determinate numerical value (a positive number resulting from a vast sum over all corpuscles of the product of the size and speed of each corpuscle at the present time), do we ever come to a time, past or future, at which the quantity of motion is zero?
