Science and Health with Key the Scriptures,
8 - - Footsteps of Truth
The sensations of the body must either be the sensations
of a so-called mortal mind or of matter. Nerves
are not mind. Is it not provable that Mind is
not mortal and that matter has no sensation?
Is it not equally true that matter does not appear in the
spiritual understanding of being?
The sensation of sickness and the impulse to sin seem
to obtain in mortal mind. When a tear starts, does not
this so-called mind produce the effect seen in the lachrymal
gland? Without mortal mind, the tear could not
appear; and this action shows the nature of all so-called
material cause and effect.
It should no longer be said in Israel that "the fathers
have eaten sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set
on edge." Sympathy with error should disappear. The
transfer of the thoughts of one erring mind to another,
Science renders impossible.
