|The third excerpt represents the element of Water. It speaks of pure spiritual influences and feelings of love, and is drawn from Disputation of the Power and Efficacy of Indulgences by Dr. Martin Luther:
non in cas confidant, Sed nocentissime, si timorem dei per eas
25.  Docendi sunt christiani, quod si Papa nosset exactiones
venialium predicatorum, mallet Basilicam s. Petri in cineres ire
quam edificari cute, carne et ossibus ovium suarum.
1.  Docendi sunt christiani, quod Papa sicut debet ita vellet,
etiam vendita (si opus sit) Basilicam s. Petri, de suis pecuniis
dare illis, a quorum plurimis quidam concionatores veniarum
2.  Vana est fiducia salutis per literas veniarum, etiam si
Commissarius, immo Papa ipse suam animam pro illis impigneraret.
|The fourth excerpt represents the element of Earth. It speaks of physical influences and the impact of the unseen on the visible world, and is drawn from At the Earth's Core by Edgar Rice Burroughs:

to Phutra should I once pass beyond view of the plain,
and even were that possible, what aid could I bring

yet with a stubborn persistency I forged ahead toward
the foothills. Behind me no sign of pursuit developed,
before me I saw no living thing. It was as though I
moved through a dead and forgotten world.
I have no idea, of course, how long it took me to reach
