Overview
In c.1810, in commentary on the materialist philosophy of Samkhya, asserted the following logic:

Nature made itself in the same way that ‘non-sentient milk’ flows forth from its own nature, as ‘non-sentient water’ flows from its own nature (to our benefit), so the non-sentient matter of the world, although non-intelligent, may be supposed to move from its own nature.”

Here, this brings to mind Vladimir Vernadsky and his division of the periodic table into two types of matter.
