Mortal mind is ignorant of self, or it could never be
self-deceived. If mortal mind knew how to be better, it

As mortals do not comprehend even mortal existence,
how ignorant must they be of the all-knowing Mind and
of His creations.
Here you may see how so-called material sense creates
its own forms of thought, gives them material names, and
then worships and fears them. With pagan blindness,
it attributes to some material god or medicine an ability
beyond itself. The beliefs of the human mind rob and
enslave it, and then impute this result to another illusive
personification, named Satan.
