Chapter 12 - - Christian Science Practice 

 Matter and animate error

The unconscious thought in the corporeal substratum of brain produces no effect, and that condition of the body which we call sensation in matter is unreal. Mortal mind is ignorant of itself, - ignorant of the errors it includes and of their effects. Intelligent matter is an impossibility. You may say: "But if disease obtains in matter, why do you insist that disease is formed by mortal mind and not by matter?" Mortal mind and body combine as one, and the nearer matter approaches its final statement, - animate error called nerves, brain, mind, - the more prolific it is likely to become in sin and disease-beliefs.
