Tiens, papa, pourquoi que l'eau arrive sur nous?... - Mon fils, je suis bien aise que vous m'adressiez cette question qui dénote que vous désirez vous instruire et sonder les mystères de la nature ... les flots arrivent sur le rivage par suite du FLUX qui est l'opposé du REFLUX ... l'un et l'autre effet ont pour cause, l'attraction des montagnes de la lune ... faites moi penser ce soir, mon fils, de vous expliquer avec la même clarté, le système lunaire. [Well, Papa, why does the water come to us ...? My son, I am very glad that you ask me this question, which denotes that you desire to be informed and investigate the mysteries of nature ... the waves come towards the beach as a consequence of the ebb which is in opposition to the flow ... The reason for the one or the other effect is the attraction of the mountains and the moon ... do remind me tonight, my son, and I shall explain to you with the same clarity the lunar theory.]
