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 Aeroplanes and Dirigibles of War by Frederick A. Talbot:

An English airman has recently suggested a means of mining invading Zeppelins which differs completely from the foregoing proposals.
