Science and Health with Key the Scriptures,
10 - - Science of Being
The theories I combat are these: (1) that all is matter;
(2) that matter originates in Mind, and is as
real as Mind, possessing intelligence and life.
The first theory, that matter is everything, is quite as
reasonable as the second, that Mind and matter coexist
and cooperate. One only of the following statements can
be true: (1) that everything is matter; (2) that everything
is Mind. Which one is it?
Matter and Mind are opposites. One is contrary to
the other in its very nature and essence; hence both cannot
be real. If one is real, the other must be unreal. Only
by understanding that there is but one power, - not two
powers, matter and Mind, - are scientific and logical
conclusions reached. Few deny the hypothesis that intelligence,
apart from man and matter, governs the universe;
and it is generally admitted that this intelligence
is the eternal Mind or divine Principle, Love.
