He crosses the starry sky with his mind

From The Artist, the Philosopher, and the Warrior by Paul Strathern. Page 17.

A description of Paolo Toscanelli by the poet Poliziano. Toscanelli was an astronomer and a geographer.
Paulus crosses the earth with his feet
And the starry sky with his mind,
both mortal and immortal simultaneously.
