Chapter 4 - - Christian Science versus Spiritualism 

 Progress and purgatory

Even if communications from spirits to mortal consciousness were possible, such communications would grow beautifully less with every advanced stage of existence. The departed would gradually rise above ignorance and materiality, and Spiritualists would outgrow their beliefs in material spiritualism. Spiritism consigns the so-called dead to a state resembling that of blighted buds, - to a wretched purgatory, where the chances of the departed for improvement narrow into nothing and they return to their old standpoints of matter.
