The outlined pedagogical structure
On the surface there is nothing there to be seen,
though the outline is not hidden. It exists right in the open, where it had
remained for a hundred years, waiting for the process of discovery to open the door
to its unfolding.
The first footsteps of breaking the ice were taken in
the 1940s by a teacher of Christian Science in England, named John Doorly,
who was promptly excommunicated for his daring to pen the door to
discovery beyond doctrine, to something that could no longer be owned by
anyone. The resulting suppression stopped the process of discovery for a
John Doorley's work remained stalled and became a new doctrine, which it remains so to
The next steps in breaking the ice were taken around the early
1980s by a Christian Scientist, Howard Meredith, a professional educator and Christian
Science researcher in North Vancouver, Canada. This time, however, the door to discovery remained open.
With this open door a rich period of discoveries began, unfolding with individual work being
carried out by probably quite a few people in different places. What is presented here
is an individual outcome of this unfolding.
At the leading edge of science
one always stands alone and sovereign. In this case only Mary Baker Eddy's
outline for her structure remains fixed, but not so does its unfolding. As
modern mathematics demonstrates, there is no limit to the unfolding of an
idea. For example, the Pythagorean Theorem is a single profound idea of absolute
Truth in geometry, for which over the centuries several hundred patterns of geometric
principles and interrelationships have been discovered, each of which
illustrates absolutely that the theorem is correct, and thereby adds individually
to the fuller appreciation of the rich diversity of geometric ideas. Mary
Baker Eddy's fundamentally outlined pedagogical structure opens up the
same wide horizon.
The need for pedagogical
structures is illustrated by the complex nature of Mary Baker Eddy's
scientific definition for the term "God," which unfolded during
her own period of discovery. Allow me a brief
"God" defined by Mary Baker Eddy, in
advanced scientist in the spiritual realm, Mary Baker Eddy (1821-1910),
the renowned spiritual healer, had struggled with this question of how to
define God, for four
decades after she had made her initial discovery in 1866 of what she called
"the divine Principle of scientific mental healing."
she defined God in the manner shown below, presented in the glossary of her textbook
of the science that she had discovered and was developing, which she later
called Christian Science - a science focused on spiritual healing.
her 1884 definition of God:
God: I AM.
All-knowing, All-seeing, All-acting, All-loving, All-wise, and eternal.
Principle. Soul, Spirit, Life, Truth, Love, Substance, and Intelligence.
As over the following years the
development work progressed, she must have recognized that there is something wrong with
the above initial definition.
In 1901, in the 214th edition of her textbook, the prefix
"All" no longer appears capitalized, indicating thereby that the attached terms
reflect an essential quality of God, rather than being an aspect of the
identity of God. In the
same context Mary Baker Eddy changed the phrase "I AM" to "The great I
AM" and added the term "Mind" behind
Then in the years
up to 1910, after further revisions were made, the terms "Substance" and "Intelligence" no
longer appeared capitalized either, so that in the end only the terms,
"Principle; Mind; Soul; Spirit; Life; Truth; Love" remained
capitalized, together with "I AM," which fully capitalized
stands as a title.
By presenting the
terms "intelligence" and "substance" in the
non-capitalized form, she defined these terms likewise as qualities that
are inherently reflected in
all the other aspects by which God is manifest in the Universe.
non-capitalized group of terms match in number the capitalized group, it
is interesting to put the two together side by side, with the latest
non-capitalized terms serving as headers for each group. The result is the
The great I AM
It is interesting to note the
horizontal interrelationship between the two sets of terms.
Tragically, the vast majority of
Christian Scientists tend to recognize only the seven capitalized terms and sees
them standing in isolation, while ignoring the rest. In doing this
the entire concept becomes lost. And this tragedy is not confined to the
scientific perception of God, only. Consequently, in order to further the
development of a sense of reality, Divine Science, requires many
more of these types of structures, unfolding together into one all-embracing structure.
The end result of the above
correlation is by far the
grandest definition for God that I know to exist, a God that is a reality that is
reflected in the Universe on every level, from the smallest to the greatest,
including in man.
(the correlation presented here is a part of the general article: What
is God that Man is an Expression of?)
Mary Baker Eddy presents
the following as if to summarize, under the topic: Ideas
The infinite has no beginning. This word beginning
employed to signify the only,
- that is, the eternal verity and
unity of God and man, including the universe. The creative
Principle - Life, Truth, and Love - is God. The universe reflects
God. There is but one creator and one creation. This creation
consists of the unfolding of spiritual ideas and their identities,
which are embraced in the infinite Mind and forever reflected.
These ideas range from the infinitesimal to infinity, and the
highest ideas are the sons and daughters of God.
Mary Baker Eddy's
foursquare structure includes all of her major works
In the last pages of the last chapter of her
textbook, the chapter The Apocalypse, Mary Baker Eddy speaks of the biblical city foursquare. A
foursquare structure, of course, has 16 elements. It is amazing that it took a hundred
years to discover that all of her major works are divided into 16 segments
or multiples thereof, which relates them all to this one central
and its definitions.
The 10 major works of Mary Baker Eddy that are
shown to be structurally associated with the foursquare
structure are the following:
- Her textbook on Christian Science, made up of 16
- Her presentation of the Lord's Prayer, divided
into 16 stanzas.
- Her illustrated poem, Christ and Christmas, a
book of 16 verses and associated paintings.
Church Manual, structured into 16 segments.
- Her Platform of Christian Science, made up of 32
- Her glossary definition for the term,
Mortal Mind, divided into 16 parts.
- Her textbook-chapter, Recapitulation, made up
of 24 questions and answers (1 1/2x16).
- Her 26 standard
topics for the Bible Lessons (which she defined for the church services
repeated twice a year - 26 weeks). The chapter, Recapitulation, serves
as an interface to them.
- Her 26-part
definition for the term, Adam. Her chapter, Recapitulation, again serves
as an interface to them.
- In addition her entire Glossary of the textbook can
be seen as a structure of 144 definitions of terms (9x16=144).
By this association, every major work that Mary
Baker Eddy has created comes to light as evidently designed to function as a constituent of that central foursquare
structure reflecting the city foursquare from Revelation 21, which thereby becomes a pedagogical structure.
Mary Baker Eddy didn't actually dictate how the foursquare
structure is to be defined in itself, but she did provide a number of
4-part sequences that can be used to define the foursquare structure in
terms of four rows and in terms of four columns.
When seen in terms
of four rows, for example, an immensely important scientific element comes to
light in the development of the four rows, which may be termed, the moral line.
So, let's examine this particular aspect of the foursquare structure in
terms of recognizing the structure as being made up of four rows, arranged
into four levels, in which the moral line comes to light.
The Science of the
Step 1 - Definition for the Rows
When seen in terms of four
horizontal rows, each of the rows can be seen to pertain to a specific
cardinal point, of which Mary Baker Eddy defines a set of four:
Its four cardinal points are:
first, the Word of Life, Truth, and Love;
second, the Christ, the spiritual idea of
third, Christianity, which is the outcome
of the divine Principle of the Christ-idea in Christian history;
fourth, Christian Science, which to-day
and forever interprets this great example and the great Exemplar. (S&H
Step 2 - What is
Mary Baker Eddy defines four types of
mental focus in her "scientific translation of immortal Mind (1), and
mortal mind (2-4)."
1. The divine focus: God,
divine synonyms; Man, divine image; Idea, divine reflection.
2. The spiritual focus:
3. The moral focus: Transitional
qualities, evil believes disappearing.
4. The physical focus:
The first concept is defined in her
textbook under the heading of "scientific
translation of IMMORTAL MIND," and is
immediately followed with her "scientific translation of
which she presents in the textbook as developing from the bottom up whereby
"mortal mind" is loosing its mortal nature as it gravitates towards the real nature of mind,
reflecting the real, divine Mind.
The above 4-step translation is really a
translation of our perception of reality. The top row represents absolute
reality - the divinely real, the divine Spirit being manifest as reality -
and the further we get away this, the deeper we get into the mod hole
where nothing is real and all that appear real is imaginary, a tragic illusion,
a deception not dealt with in spiritual growth. At the spiritual level,
the Christ level, the level of Science, we come face to face with the
divine reality and begin to see it reflected in human existence as the
reality of our being.
The concept of an evil mind is not
legitimate in divine Science, regardless of the appearance to the
contrary. Mind cannot unfold the opposite quality of its perfection and divine
nature and engender contraries, for then the Universe would not exist. The
universe contains not a single element in its design that is contrary to
in Principle cannot exists. The duality of good and evil is purely
mythological and contains not a single thread of reality. Infinite Mind can
have no cognizance of unreality, which would be a contradiction of
Principle whereby the Universe would collapse if such a contradiction was
found in the real would.
Nevertheless the spiritual healer needs
to consider the various aspects of the mud hole mentality, so-called, for
its mythology spreads like a fungus and deceives the unaware and enslaves
them with the games that are played in the mud hole. Healing begins with
one becoming aware that the chains that bind mankind with disease and evil
intentions, and tragic consequences, are not divinely real, but are
mythological in nature and therefore can be shed legitimately and
naturally. In divine Science, divine Mind alone is the cause of all that is
real, which mankind is designed to reflect consciously, thereby taking on
the quality of a producer and creator, producing and creating resources
for its living that don't exist naturally. Man's origin therefore is in
Mind, with a connection to divine Mind that has never been severed or can
be annulled or be repealed. Mind is one and has no opposite. All is Mind.
Mary Baker Eddy states this fact in countless different ways, such as
under the topic, "Mind the only
Step 3 - The moral
This idea behind the second set of descriptors
It divides the foursquare structure into three zones.
The top row remains defined as the
divine zone, the zone of immortal Mind, divine Spirit and its manifest in
all that is the divinely real.
The remaining three rows are
divided into an upper and lower zone by the moral line. This
two zone layout is
clearly visible on the tablet that is shown in the lap of the woman in the
rocking chair in the painting Christmas
Eve in Christ and Christmas.
The Moral Line
The importance of the moral line is that
it divides the spiritual world, the world of civilization, from the sewer
of the imaginary world where nothing is real through great tragedies
unfold there, which may be termed the sub-moral world. This all-important moral line serves as a kind of
firewall that keeps the creatures of the sewer from spoiling the
"kingdom of heaven."
The point is that the natural inclination
of humanity is to live above the moral line, as high above as possible, as
close as one can reach humanly to the divine zone where mankind comes to
light in its divine image, a divine idea reflecting God. That this upwards
trend is the natural trend is illustrated by the founding of the American
Republic far from the shores of the imperial world. The pilgrims who came
to America did so in order to create a free society as high above the
moral line in the spiritual domain as possible. For this ideal great
hardships were endured and sacrifices made. It was natural for the
pioneers of humanity to cast their hopes far away from the sewers of
empire and closer to God.
The moral line is a firewall that no
sewer creature can escape across, because the closer a sewer creature is
approaching the moral line from the sewer, the more it becomes impelled to
let go of its sewer enterprises, the enterprises of empire expressed in
looting, stealing, lying, destroying, and making war for such ends. The
moral line makes the creatures human and fit to pass across. In the sewer
is where we find all the creatures of empire; the kings and queens, and
emperors, including many presidents, legislatures and senates, end even large parts of
society, who have identified themselves as such by their commitments to the sewer enterprises.
The moral line is also a warning line,
because being far from the divine light, the sewer is a dangerous place.
The sewer has many names, although the term, empire, combines almost the
whole ground, and as history has proved, empire is inherently
self-destructive. No empire ever survived long. And whatever society finds
itself attracted into this sewer follows the same fate. Without the divine
qualities being expressed, civilization simply disintegrates. This can be
the fate of entire nations, as history has shown, and even the tragedy of
the world as a whole. America is
presently on the fast track of realizing this self-imposed fate. As a champion in the
fight against fascism, America once flourished, but when it became the champion of
empire, wielding the atomic bomb and other weapons of mass-destruction, it
dropped below the moral line destroying in its course many a nation, but
mostly itself on this course.
The world below the moral line, far from
the light of God, is also a world of disease and all kinds of mythological
traps, which nevertheless Christian Science can reach and bring light
into. In Christian Science the human mind is not a healing agent, but the
divine Mind is. The human mind, being trapped itself into countless errors
and false perceptions is not a fit agent to heal anything. Christian
Science aids the struggling heart to lift itself above the moral line to
higher ground than the one in which the tragedy of disease is grounded. There, healing
Some additional groups defining the four
Mary Baker Eddy presents three
additional groups of
related concepts of four terms each that all pertain to the four levels, or
cardinal points, that describe the four rows.
The first two groups are groups of glossary terms.
|| Kingdom of heaven
The third group is set of
four terms found in the glossary in the definition for the term
"good." They are:
|| omni action.
Much healing is needed in
the sub-moral domain, and the active impetus there can only be divine. The
human mind, being tied to too many mythological concepts, is not a healing
agent. It is the cause for much of mankind finding itself 'living' in the
sub-moral domain. The sub-moral domain is a busy place where countless types
of insanity rule by which the wealth of society is being privatized and
drained away with ever-greater portions of humanity being left out in the
cold to starve to death.
The sub-moral domain can be
likened to a scene where children play near the banks of a river in pools
of mud making mud pies, and piling the mud up into imaginary castles. The
scene becomes a tragic scene for those who refuse to grow up.
Unfortunately there are many of those now, populating the mud holes, who refuse to grow it. Some have
become civic leaders, and business leaders, bankers, billionaires,
thieves, and presidents and kings, still playing in the mud holes where
nothing is real, where what they lay their hands on is purely imaginary, a
wonderland of dreams, which unfortunately does not meet society's real
Far too often an entire
country gets dragged into the mud hole by these 'chidren' or by the masters of the
mud hole who control them, the masters of empire. Entire nations become trapped
there that way,
'inspired' to love the mud-hole enterprises as they become increasingly more greedy, more fascist, more evil, intensely war-focused,
and deadly to all the participants and those nearby.
That's where we are today, as we have been
in all the times that are known in history as the Dark Ages. We have seen
in history entire nations dying in their mud hole, playing fascist games
that no one can survive. The game that Hitler was taught to play by the
masters of empire, for
example, had tragic consequences that Germany and much of the world has not yet
recovered from. While Hitler's Nazi machine was eventually crushed by a
global effort, the fascism that
Hitler was taught to exemplify, lived on and has become itself a global scourge.
The moral line that
Mary Baker Eddy has pioneered, and our divine resources for healing.
The escape from the mud
hole is simple. All that the 'children' need to do, who are trapped there,
is to look up and climb out of their mud hole that they deem to be
civilization. They will naturally do this when they recognize that their
perceived 'civilization' is a deception. This action, for many, became their first real action towards
becoming men and women, discovering their native qualities of God's creating -
their innate reason, perspicacity, creativity, productivity, and
Scientific cognition is
discouraged in the mud hole. It is however a native quality of our common
humanity, reflecting the omni action of God that never fades or
stops, or is never less than all-supportive. Spiritual action is not possible
for mankind, it is its most natural action even at the lowest level in the deepest mud hole, because
spiritual action, or omni action, is a basic characteristic of God.
If the omni action characteristic is
basic for God, can it be any less basic for us as God's reflection? The
original is mirrored in its reflection, or as Mary Baker Eddy has put it,
"Principle and its idea is one" (p.465).
In the real Universe mankind is well equipped with the power to climb out
of its mud hole of deception; escape from the sewers these holes have become, sewers of
empire, to reach up for the moral line and then reach above it.
No one can really linger at
the moral line. God won't allow us to fall asleep there. The spiritual
nature of ourselves is far greater than that of a 'default being' living in
the mediocrity of a sleep-like existence, devoid of the divine dynamics,
the creative and productive animus that God is, and which is ever present
where God is reflected - which includes all.
leaves no room for mediocrity or dreaming, much less for any dream walking
in the mud holes. God's omnipresence knocks on the door of consciousness
and bids us to open the door to higher ground, and to open it wide, and
decisively. (This is what the painting Truth
verses Error illustrates, which is located at the moral line.)
When one does open the
door, one finds the higher ground to be intensely scientific - not intellectually
scientific, but spiritually scientific. Intellectually, anything can be
justified, as Hitler's beloved philosopher Nietzsche exemplifies. Real
Science is spiritual. Christ represents Science, the spiritual idea of
God; of Truth; of all that is real; of the world as it really is outside
of the mud hole.
God can only be omniscient
in nature, the foundation of Science. Since this is so, can mankind
be less than scientific at its very heart and soul. Whoever rejects
Science is on a course of self-denial, a sign that the individual is
harboring an attachment to the mud hole, which many are reluctant to let go,
and to let go completely. Science, however, confers the power to break those ties to the
illusionary world of sleep walking and dreaming. Ultimately we find no
satisfaction in anything less than the reflected omniscience of
God becoming manifest in our living. Thus we let it be the foundation for
In the mud hole the game is
about power. The power that kings seek as they play in their mud hole, who
actually do wield power there over their imaginary creations, though this is not real power.
It is nothing more than dominion. Dominion has no place in the divine
order. In the real Universe where "Principle and its idea is
one," there is no dominion of one over another possible. The term
Dominion implies a denial of God. Real power unfolds in divine reflection.
A divine idea reflects all the power of principle. That is how the
Universe operates. And this applies to us all. On this platform man is a
powerful being. We would have no power to create or produce anything, and
to up uplift and enrich our world, without God's omnipotence that
powers the whole Universe, which is also reflected also in us.
See: What is God that Man is an
God, omnipotence, is
our home and heaven, and our native dwelling place. We are not truly home
at any other level, but there is a path outlined for us for the claiming
of our divine
Heritage. And it is high time that we do this and become familiar with it.
The moral line is
If we remain stuck in the
mud hole we may destroy the whole planet in our sleep walk and dreamy
existence, committing follies that have evermore devastating consequences
as our material technologies become more and more powerful, which we
indeed require to meet our physical needs, but which can also be abused.
We now have the technological capability to destroy all life on the
planet, and the mud kings have amply demonstrated their unrestrained
willingness to to unleash these kinds of horrors against mankind. The
consequences have so
far remained carefully hidden in order to protect the mud-pool games.
For example, the tiny bit
of depleted uranium poisoning of the air with radioactive uranium dust
from the use of Deplete Uranium weapons has already caused alarming consequences.
The radioactive particles that are dispersed with the weapons use are smaller than the wavelength of light, by which they are
invisible to all but electron-beam microscopes. To date, upwards to 5 million
kilograms of uranium has been vaporized into the air, with a large portion
pollution now being distributed throughout the northern
hemisphere where these weapons have been used in war. Having become a part
of the air that we all breathe, the tiny radiation emitters become inhaled and
lodged in the body where their nucleonic charges damage living cells
causing a range of 90-plus diseases, primarily cancers and diabetes.
Six-fold increases in lung cancer rates has been recorded in the USA shortly
after the Iraq war, and the worldwide cases of diabetis-2 have jumped from 30
million cases to 230 million cases. In the same time frame we have also
seen such exotic happenings as the mass-death of bees throughout the northern
hemisphere; the onset of the exotic bird flu; the general reduction of the
insect population, and consequently a reduction of the bird population.
It might even be that the
current pine beetle infestation in North America, which is ten times worse
than any previously known and is expected to destroy 80% of North
America's western pine forests, may have its origin in the radioactive
uranium pollution of the air in the northern hemisphere, as the result of
devastated the beetle's natural predators. Vast pine forests have been growing
in North America for thousands of years, suddenly in the
postwar years we see this mass devastation happening, coincident with a whole range
of devastating events in the postwar period relative to the mass use of
uranium in bombs and munitions in the theatres of war, primarily in the
wars against Yugoslavia, Iraq, and Afghanistan.
Has anybody ever wondered
what happened to all the
songs of the birds that used to fill the mornings in spring and summer twenty years ago?
The spring has become almost silent now in comparison with the late 1980s.
The bird's voices have diminished together with the birds. We are now
closer to the "silent spring" that Rachel Carson wrote about in
her political book with the same title, for which the world's most effective
and safest pesticide, DDT, was banned. Except it wasn't the DDT
pesticide that has silenced the birds, since it wasn't allowed anymore
even at the cost of the subsequent devastation of human life by the tens of
millions from malaria against which the most effective defense had been
taken off the shelves by the
ban. Instead, the silent spring resulted from the radioactive
pollution of the air from uranium weapons, but this tragedy the mud masters
refuse to disallow, even while they are prepared to use a hundred times more of
the same weapons, which sit pre-positioned on the ground.
Just consider that
the trivial 5 million kilograms of uranium that have been used in weapons so
far, may be increased a hundred-fold to judge by the stockpiles of weapons
already laid up. The result of those games of the mud kings are fast becoming so huge
that they threaten to be no longer survivable, considering
the numerous consequences.

Uranium Time Bomb
It becomes essential
therefore for society to vacate the offices that currently occupied by the
mud-king, of which there are now a great many. A great deal of healing is needed
there in the mud hole to get the people dwelling in the mud to higher ground where
they are no longer damaging to civilization, and may even become
supportive of it.
A great deal of development along this line needed, and
is needed now, and this not only to stop the specter of war that may
destroy the world, but also to stop the grand-thievery looting in the
financial derivatives gambling that the taxpayers are presently called on to
bail out at the tune of tens of trillions of dollars while the productive industries
are being collapsed by this insanity around the
world, which has already bankrupted almost all U.S. State governments and many
nations, and has thrown countless millions of families out of their homes
with foreclosure actions. This immense insanity has all by itself the
potential to bring down the economic house of mankind and reduce the world
population to less than two billion, as the mud kings cry they want to
'achieve.' This tragic potential is real and immediate, with the distance of the
resulting crisis now being measured in weeks, or months at the most,
rather than in years as in earlier times. The need for
healing is therefore 'acute' and immediate, and supercritical. Fortunately
the healing is also relatively easy to accomplish on a scientific
basis above the moral level.
See the alternative to: economic
The critical factor is that the world cannot afford a further loss of its
creative and productive potential, especially with the return of the Ice Age on the
near horizon. The Ice Age cycles that have recurred with clockwork
regularity is a feature of the Universe we live in. We have to live with
that, and we have the power to do so if we utilize the capacities we have
as human beings. The return of the Ice Age doesn't have to
cause a crisis, because the technological means are within reach to feed
the world from indoor agriculture and to relocate the northern nations
whose territory becomes uninhabitable by the resulting increasing glaciation. From a human standpoint
this protective response is possible and natural, but
not from a standpoint that is rooted in the mud holes. The return of the
Ice Age can be faced by creating a great humanist, technological, and economic
renaissance, greater than anything yet imagined, which we have the
capacity to create, once the mud holes have been vacated. But this the
masters of the mud hole, the masters of empire, won't allow to be even
contemplated, for the reason that a renaissance would threaten the mud hole. For this
very reason hardly anything is ever said in public about the coming Ice Age. The song is
about global warming instead that has been turned into another cash cow for the
mud kings. The fact is that the global warming hype was started in 1974 when the
scientific community became concerned about the need for preparing for the
return of the Ice Age. Their concern was brutally hijacked and turned upside

present stage of the world. (The four terms are listed in their original

The 'children' who are
taught to play in the mud hole, are taught to love to be trapped there.
They are taught by the imperial machine. They are taught to sing the song:
Isn't it wonderful here? No one has to work to earn a living here. Isn't
glorious becoming rich by looting others? It's far simpler just to steal
from one another than creating riches that uplift all. The 'children' are
taught to sing, isn't it marvelous being millionaires and billionaires and
trillionaires, living without a care in the world? They are taught to sing in the
mud hole, this is the best there is, it can't get any better. Privatize
everything into the mud hole, because what you see here is all there is, folks.
course the mud hole is far too small for the whole world to fit into. This
means, folks, that 90% of mankind has no legitimate place to be in a world that is too small now,
who should therefore lay themselves down to die.
All the mud politicians of the new American empire now preach this song,
proclaiming that 90% of mankind has no legitimate place to be or right to
exist, and therefore must be made to understand that
they must die. "We are a society of the rich now, with no room for the
little people," is how the song goes.
Oh, isn't it grand to live in this mud hole?
Well, is it?
Mary Baker Eddy already understood
hundred years ago that it isn't, and what the challenge is for this age to
come to terms with, which she has symbolized with the moral line. As if in
response she has placed the royal crown, the symbol of the mud hole, at the center of her
seal in 1903, evidently to symbolize the depth of the challenge before mankind,
which so far
no one really wants to even acknowledge as a challenge, much less provide
a healing for. Of course this refusal is choking society's normal
development path. Nevertheless, society has no option but to respond to
what is divinely true, regardless of what is perceived by it as true in the
slimy world of the mud hole.
Benjamin Franklin was once
asked by some people what kind of a country he was creating for America.
His answer is quoted to have been, "I give you a Republic if you can
keep it. Mary Baker Eddy might have answered to a similar question,
"I give you the greatest healing science ever created on the face our
planet, if you can develop it in your spiritual understanding."
A political economist would
likely see the answer in terms of "Patriots versus Traitors," as
some have put it in many a writing, but Mary Baker Eddy says no. She says,
this must be seen in terms of a process of "Truth versus
Error," (as I have already indicated earlier). The answer therefore implies a
scientific process of distinguishing the real world from the unreal,
regardless of what appears to be the mental state of the
mud-hole dwellers and their kings. The scientific process of "Truth
verses Error" is in real terms the most liberating process there
is, including in the physical economic sense. Thus, Mary Baker Eddy has placed the
painting Truth versus Error right onto the moral line, which is fast
becoming the most critical line for modern civilization. Far more is at
stake here than is generally recognized or even imagined.
With a keen scientific sense
the limits fall away
The higher we step above
the moral line, the greater becomes our productive potential to create a
rich, healthy, and free civilization. At the divine level, the top level, the potential is so
great that it challenges the imagination. Just look at the natural world
that illustrates the potential we truly have as creative beings. Consider
the structure of an atom that the Universe has created. It is a construct
that is 100,000 times larger than sum of its parts. An atom represents a
100,000-fold gain in creative economics. Can you imagine this as a model
for our infrastructure building to create a new world in real terms?
Achieving a 100,000-fold gain in
Yes, this potential is real
and can be realized through free high quality housing as a starting
platform. The current housing crisis that has become critical in most parts of
the world, can be easily resolved on such a platform. It is
technologically and economically feasible to create high quality housing
in automated processes, and to do this so efficiently and inexpensively that
the produced housing can be
given away for free as an investment by society into itself. High quality
housing is key to a society's humanist self-development. Homelessness and
must be seen as a huge waste of society's most precious asset, which is
itself; its human potential. A 100,000 fold gain of society's real wealth
in living can be easily achieved along this line, and should be pursued immediately
to meet a need that is more than critical already.
The easily possible and free high-quality
housing will most likely be produced by the millions of units, once this
freedom that we already have is realized. The housing units will most
likely be manufactured out of molten basalt in ejection molding processes. Basalt is
a finely grained stone that becomes liquid at 1,400 degrees Celsius. It is
nearly as hard as diamond; none abrasive; none corrosive; stronger than
steel by weight; totally fire and rot resistant, and is a better insulator
than asbestos. Building materials can't get any better than this. And best of all,
the basalt sits process-ready on the ground in
near infinite quantities. The reason why it is not widely used is the lack
of nuclear power, or electrical systems beyond nuclear power, to make the
high-temperature process heat possible for large scale automated
One this kind of wave of
development starts, which is immediately possible, it will revolutionize all forms of
manufacturing and uplift the standard of living across the world where
unemployment, crime, and poverty currently reign. The potential for
general manufacturing is so great that we might see the $100 car in our lifetime, powered by hydrogen fuels running
a gas turbine feeding a hydraulic propulsion system. The current automobile
production is far too primitive, expensive, and labor intensive to be
continued much longer. Humanity is not born
to labor in drudgery, but to live as creators and producers of automated
systems that take the drudgery out of production.
A 100,000-fold gain in
electric energy production appears to be also at our 'fingertips.'
No, I am not talking about
the much hoped for nuclear fusion power, which is inherently not
achievable. Nor will we see a massive increase in uranium based nuclear
power, which is likewise inefficient. Thorium in liquid salt reactors
provides a vastly greater energy resource than anything under the Sun to
short of the electric power that powers the Sun itself, supplied by
galactic and intergalactic electric currents. The Earth, being in an
near the Sun, is afloat in an untapped, near infinite, see of electric-energy, which when tapped into
as a resource will largely obsolete all other electric
energy systems. Of course, the science behind this resource is currently
forbidden. It is being
blocked by the masters of the mud hole who rake in huge profits from the
oil industry. But this will likely change in the not-so-distant future.

A 100,000-fold gain in
Right now the world would
celebrate if a doubling of the word's food supply could be achieved, which
is easily possible since the vast majority of farming is done under
absolutely primitive conditions. Except, such a small increase won't help
us during the next Ice Age cycle that disables most of the current agricultural
production when the temperatures begin to drop as the Ice Age
climate develops. By then the technology will have to be ready and the
infrastructures created to supply
the needs of mankind with indoor agriculture
on a vast scale, possibly with facilities stacked up 50 stories high. Prior to this point
the enormous unused food-production potential of Africa will likely be developed. In order to enable this development, a series of floating
bridges will likely be built across the oceans, made of basalt, connecting
all of the world's continents with high speed rail transports for freight.
Africa might even be irrigated for agricultural production with diverted
waters from the outflow of the Amazon river, transported across the oceans
in large-scale submerged basalt pipelines, which might eventually become a
global fresh-water network.
None of the above is far
fetched. It will happen. Today's big question for society is whether it
wants to see this happening in its time, and enjoy the benefits, rather
than leaving it up to future ages to develop the human potential that we
have the power to realize already today.
So, why do we wallow in
poverty, depression, and despair?
The answer is found in society's commitment
to its mud-hole culture. It has refused to grow up. It is refusing to even
consider the moral line. Oh, it is easy to blame society's tragedy on the mud
mentality of its leaders, or as in the case of the USA, to blame the masters of
empire who have spent vast sums during election campaigns to bring the most
destructive mud kings and traitors into power that money can buy, who are committed
and able to destroy the USA in the most effective manner possible, and are doing
this, performing their duties well - to eradicate the historic enemy of empire that
has been a danger to empire ever since the USA was born and became a free nation. On
this ground successive presidents have been 'hired' who have become increasingly destructive, to the
point that the end of the nation is now assured by their collective crimes against the nation
and humanity, exemplified by the current sitting President, which the nation, and to a large
degree the world, cannot survive till the end of his term in office. While
the majority of the population is slowly waking up now and would love to see the man, and the ruling traitors in the
legislature, to be removed from office, society finds itself nevertheless lacking the moral
strength to take the needed steps, even while the very existence of its Republic, and to a
large degree its own existence, is at stake.
In conversation recently one
fellow wondered with amazement how it has become possible that a single man has
amassed the power to destroy an entire nation and the potentially also the
No said another, what I find amazing, is that a society of 300 million
finds itself unable to dismiss a hired servant, and servants, who have become
destructive to it and endanger its very existence.
No, said a third, what I find
amazing, is that the USA as a nation that gave its all to free the world of the danger of
Nazism, now maintains a Hitler in the White House.
No, said a forth, what I find
amazing, is that the very man, Carl Schmidt, who engineered the legal foundation
for Hitler's dictatorship rule, has done the same in America with the Unitary
Executive doctrine, and that the nation's Supreme Court has openly become
'stocked' with disciples of the doctrine.
No, said a fifth man, what I find
amazing, is that a nation that once stood as a beacon of hope for mankind, has
saturated its mental house with a death culture focused on the murdering of human
beings, such as in killer games, killer movies, and a counterculture that in so many ways makes human living a joke.
The answer to all of these
concerns appears to be
located in society's sadly lacking awareness of the science of the moral line
and the consequent lack of society's self-development on the platform of this science.
The perception of four
It appears that the moral,
and spiritual scientific development of society is too complex to be
successfully addressed only in terms of four distinct levels and their
function. The current near universal failure in society to even deal with
the imperatives of the moral line, proves that that a far more extensive
scientific spiritual development is needed. Naturally, Mary Baker Eddy has
provided the necessary structures for meeting this need.
It was evidently in this
context that she divided the wide scene of the foursquare structure into
four logical columns in which one can deal with the four levels in a more
focused fashion. In the resulting four individual paths the individual
self-development is more easily managed, such as developing Truth-focused
perceptions as a means for lifting one out of the mud-focused thinking
that is choking much of the modern world into impotence, disease, and in
many cases even death.
When the foursquare
structure is seen in terms of four columns, the individual development paths
are explored one by one, even though they are themselves progressive from
column to column. Mary Baker Eddy's purpose evidently was to enable in
society the much needed scientific and spiritual
self-development in the four major contexts of human living, such as
beauty, spiritual rights, scientific power, and the development of Science
So, let's explore the for columns with this in mind.
A structure of four
When the foursquare matrix is seen
as four columns, other sets of four definitions can be brought to
bear as definitions for the columns. One set of these definitions is provided in terms of four rivers,
rivers of distinct
developmental flows, or flows of unfolding.
Mary Baker Eddy provided
the definitions for these rivers in her Glossary by name as the four biblical rivers from
Genesis 2. She defines them in the spiritual scientific context that relates them to the four columns
when applied in
the original biblical sequence. The four rivers are:
Pison (river). The love of
the good and beautiful, and their immortality.
Gihon (river). The rights of
woman acknowledged morally, civilly, and socially.
Hiddekel (river). Divine
Science understood and acknowledged.
Euphrates (river). Divine

physics; the reign of righteousness. The atmosphere of human belief

the only error of which is limitation; finity; the opposite of
Note: The term, "woman," in
the second river reflects her statement that "woman
is the highest term for man," (from the 1884 edition, defined under the
glossary term "Man" referring to generic man). It also reflects
the image in Revelation 12 of a "woman clothed with the sun..." The definition of the term,
Man, was later restructured with the bulk of it shifted into the chapter
Recapitulation, and with the phrase removed that woman is the highest term
for man. At some later point, after 1901,
the context may have reappeared under the question, What is man? Part of
her answer, became: "Man is idea, the image, of Love; he is not
Actually, there have been two
additional sets of definitions provided provided by her that set up the context in which
the four "rivers" unfold. These provide a high-level description of the city foursquare. They describe
the city in terms of four sides, and also with four geographic orientations
(for the four rivers flowing out in the four celestial directions.) She writes:
The four 'sides' of our 'city' are:
and divine Science.
She then describes these
further in terms of the city's celestial orientation. (p.

question, "What is God?" Mary Baker Eddy gives us
another set of four definitions that are also applicable to the four columns.
And she gives us four more that relate to the mud-world typified by the
Adam mythology. These Adam definitions are
of course countered
by the four divine definitions respective of God.
God is incorporeal.
Here the name Adam counters this truth with the false supposition
"that Life is not eternal,
but has beginning and end."
God is divine.
Here the name Adam counters this truth with the false supposition
"that intelligence passes
into non-intelligence, and that Soul dwells in material sense."
God is supreme.
Here the name Adam counters this truth with the false supposition
"that immortal Mind
results in matter, and matter in mortal mind."
God is infinite.
Here the name Adam counters this truth with the false supposition
"that the one God and
creator entered what He created, and then disappeared in the atheism of
So, how do we work with all
the purpose is to address a specific need for healing, one needs to
determine where specifically the heart of the problem is located so that
it can be most effectively corrected with the specific aspect of truth
that counters the specific failure. In some cases more than one aspect
consider for example, diabetes.
It is officially classified
as 'medical' problem for which medical responses have been developed.
However, in the majority of the cases the condition has become the collateral
result of war. When the prevailing rate climbs in the postwar period
from 30 million cases worldwide to 230 million cases, then war is
indicated as a potential cause, resulting from the radioactive pollution
of the air as the consequence of the massive use of uranium in weapons
that became vaporized during the Yugoslav War, the Iraq War, and the
Afghanistan War. While the concentration of the resulting diabetes is
more dense in or near the war zones, the air pollution spreading like a
gas has become a global phenomenon, especially throughout the northern hemisphere.
This means that the spiritual healer has to consider the mental
background behind these causative factors in addition to the physical factors,
especially now that the tragedy created by war will likely be unfolding for
thousands of years to come until the radioactive pollution is slowly
rained out and the air becomes clean once again.
intention in war, therefore, remains a factor that needs to be
addressed by the healer, for the intention in war is to create
conditions that kill people who are classified an enemy. Weapons are
created for killing people, or damaging them, or destroying their life
by disabling their normal functions. This intention therefore stands in
the background that must be addressed by the healer, together with the
physical condition of the health problem. The intention to kill is as
much a disease in spiritual terms as is the physical disease that
results from the intention. To ignore the first factor would then be
hypocritical. It would imply that the intention to kill is all right because
one can gain a personal exemption from the consequences through prayer.
The hypocrisy becomes a blocking factor as it pulls us into opposite directions.
The entire mental background must therefore be addressed. And it can be
addressed, because war, just as any other disease, is not a native human
quality, or an acquired human quality,
because it is not a divine quality that alone defines the human quality.
What flows from the divine quality is an appreciations of the beauty and
immortality of Life as an aspect of God that is reflected in man, and is
legitimately reflected in universal loving, cherishing, supporting,
enabling, protecting, and honoring one-another as a divine idea. The
great lack of generosity in modern society is not far distant from the
intention to kill.
healing stream for this example would begin in the first column where
the river is "Pison" defined as: "The love of
the good and beautiful, and their immortality."
In one instance uranium
is used in weapons for its excellent effect in killing and harming, so
that the healer is facing the task to mentally overcome the very
condition that has been intended, and which continues to be the intention as
possibly a hundred times more of these weapons are still actively deployed,
ready for future use with the same intention. Thus a double healing is
required: The healing of society's mud mentality that includes the
killing of human beings for evermore insane reasons,
and the healing of the resulting physical disease.
The healing resource
in both cases lies at the top end of the 'river' where the divine
value of the human being comes to light in "the good and beautiful
and their immortality." In the flow from tragedy to reality every
error in thought and in deed, must (and can) be dealt with in a mental
process by which the full face of the human being becomes restored. In a
very real sense, the healing of society is thereby included in the
The healing must therefore
include the eradication of the
intention to murder and injure, meaning the elimination of war, and the
elimination of empire that demands war. Acknowledging the divine rights
of man includes nothing less. The attainment of Truth in this regard is
typified by John the Revelator who beheld mankind (Rev. 12) as a
"woman clothed with the sun, and upon her head a crown of twelve
stars" signifying the elimination of much error - the stars of rejoicing).
Isn't that what Mary Baker Eddy brings into view in the river Gihon,
"the rights of woman acknowledged morally, civilly, and socially?" In this context the second river puts onto the map more
fully the divine quality of mankind that the first river gently develops
and brings to light. The duality of the first two rivers illustrates to
some degree the path by which multifaceted healing can be accomplished.
some cases the combined paths of all four rivers may be required for
pulling oneself (and society) out of the mud hole where no one is really
the case of depression and obesity
example, the healing of depression and obesity, which appear to be related
- which in some respects have become a national disease in many a
country, in some areas affecting over 40% of the population - may require the paths of all four rivers to be effectively
dealt with as numerous factors are feeding into this disease. Nobody
really knows what the actual causes are, which are likely many.
tell us that the percentage of cases has suddenly doubled from the 1980s
on and is still increasing, and that the majority of the cases is found
in the manual-labor category of employment, probably being concentrated
in meaningless or mundane jobs.
what happened from the 1980s on? Has the quality of food changed? It is
being suggested that the produced food has become nutritionally hollow,
so that more is demanded by an individual's body to offset the
shortfall. It is possible further that genetically modified food is a
factor, which has rapidly proliferated from the 1980s on, for increased
cartel profits. It is also possible that the uranium pollution of the
air is a factor, which began in the late 1980s. And to top it all off,
the general mental background became one of increasing hopelessness, as
under the policies of empire, by which the sweeping deindustrialization
of the world began, which was initiated for the stated purposes of rendering society more
impotent. With the elimination of high-earning, high-skilled jobs,
depression tends to set in. This trend is still increasing.
depression factor is the environmental insanity that labels mankind a
cancer on the earth in order to justify the poverty and depopulation
policies that began to be implemented in the 1970s, and are still
increasing. Another contributing factor evidently is also the loss of
cultural optimism that resulted from the intentional devolution of
culture and education under the political watchword of "cultural freedom"
(meaning freedom from culture), which even includes the freedom of
One associated, contributing, hidden factor
for depression may also be the
increased looting of society by the financial thievery that has become
an industry under the name of "investment," deploying money to
make money without producing anything of value that would justify the
profits of the billionaires. The vast dislocation of wealth through
outright thievery by countless clever means is a hugely depressing factor that simmers
under the surface.
of the above are symptoms of the disease of empire that festers in the
mud hole that society is evermore dragged into.
facets of the disease that festers in the mud hole are almost too
numerous to be addressed individually. But they must be addressed for
the healing of depression and obesity, which themselves are but symptoms of an
iceberg that lays underneath. Fortunately they can be addressed, because
none of them are factors of the divine reality that is the foundation of
our being and which we have the capacity to manifest in our living as
the reflections of God. In the divine Universe, and there really is no
other universe, every form of disease and whatever lays beneath it is
unreal. By upholding what is divinely real, and by taking the wind out of
the sails of what is ultimately unreal, our living will invariably (and
must of necessity) reflect the scientific realization of what is
understood and acknowledged as the Truth, regardless of what appears to
be real to the contrary.
the errors before the disease.
the mental healing of any disease, the mental undercurrents need to be
considered and overcome, and this in one's own mental house first and
foremost, considering that the physical symptoms are the end result of
often a long chain of underlying errors. Often the lie itself becomes
the official policy by intention, and is, on this platform, widely used. The official
criterion here is called "plausible deniability." In other
words, it's OK to lie whenever it is profitable to do so, for as long as
the lie can be covered up with the mantle of deniability. The policy
"In Lies We Trust" has thereby become a wide-ranging national
disease that even the sciences have become subjected to as the global
warming hoopla illustrates.
The scientific fact is that the return of
the Ice Age is on the near horizon, which sparked a concern in the
scientific community in the early 1970s. If the concern had been
responded to honestly with the necessary renaissance development of the
world that would enable the protection of the global food supply in the coming cold climate, the
resulting renaissance would have ended the reign of empire forever.
Thus, in order to save their illegitimate colossus, the masters empire
thought up a lie to hide the truth. That's how the global warming hoopla
was invented in 1974, for which the sciences have been pressed into
service to keep the lie going, contrary to the prevailing evidence.
policy of forcing the devolution of science with the imposition of lies
has a long history that goes all way back to the early 1600s when Paolo
Sarpi pioneered the process as a policy to protect the Venetian Empire
from the renaissance spirit that still lingered in his time and was seen
even then as a mortal threat to empire. The policy of utilizing lies
(and secrecy as a form of lies) has taken a huge toll in the mental
domain of society, diminishing the accepted status of man, so that society now
faces the task to recover from an imposed tragedy for which the consequences are becoming
increasingly more critical, and are challenging the very survival of
of the global warming hoax (that currently protects empire) is that it
deprives mankind of the opportunity it still has to prepare itself for
the return of the Ice Age that is no longer distant on the horizon,
towards which the transition may have already begun. The upcoming task
of mankind to produce its food recourses from indoor agriculture before
the deepfreeze sets in is technologically feasible, but requires massive
infrastructure development that may take a century to complete, which
might be all the time that we have remaining to us in the current interglacial
period of nicely warn and agriculture-friendly climate. But this is in
danger. Society's going along with the global-warming hoax is paramount
to bringing on the greatest genocide of all times.
(See: Global Warming? -
The deadliest fiction ever written )
course, one's active participation in a process for intentional
near-global genocide is not a good platform for reaching out from, to God, for the healing of disease that
itself stands puny in the shadow of
genocide. And that's just one of several related tragedies.
more developed form of causing intentional genocide by starvation is the
now worldwide bio-fuel hoax that distills food products into motor
fuel in a world in which more than a billion people have been forced
into chronic starvation (primarily by the prevention of economic
development). Under the heading of the global-warming hoax vast areas of
farm land are taken out of food production to produce the farm products
for distilling ethanol and bio-diesel. Ethanol is an alcohol fuel that
is typically produced by fomenting corn and distilling the alcohol from
it. It is expensive to produce, is corrosive to the metals of the fuel
system of cars, produces less energy than the gasoline it dilutes, and
produces a greater amount of pollution, including toxic alcohol
related pollutants, and a greater amount of carbon dioxide that it is
supposed to prevent under the global warming dogma. The myth that
bio-fuels are an energy resource can only be sustained by accounting fraud, such as
omitting the energy costs for the inputs. The only thing that ethanol
does effectively is kill people.
land area that diverted to ethanol production in the USA alone would
normally have the capacity to feed a 100 million people. The figures are
similar in other areas of the world. This massive burning of food is a
crime against humanity in a world in which more than a billion people
are subjected to chronic starvation. This starvation could be stopped by
stopping the ethanol hoax, and by allowing economic development to occur
in the poor countries, as the world's food supply could thereby be doubled with
once commented in a parable (Matth. 5:23) about this type of problem that
now rests on the shoulders of all of us. He spoke of a man who came
before the altar of God to offer a gift, but he counseled that if the
man had anything outstanding on his account against his brother, he
should first settle his debt to his brother and then offer the gift to
God. The gift here may be called, embracing divine Truth for the purpose
of healing. Becoming engaged in science fraud that involves the
intention to murder, evidently weighs heavily against what a healer, or
patient, is aiming for. One needs to consider this when pulling up to
the gas pump for a fill-up, for one's debt to mankind towards stopping
this insanity by healing the world of it, is great.
fraud in general falls into this category that Christ Jesus referred to.
There is a lot of science fraud going on. Some of the fraud is so subtle
that it is hard to detect. It often wears a benign face.
example is the promise for limitless electric energy supplies by nuclear
fusion power. But this is an empty promise as "nuclear fusion
power" is a contradiction in language. Nuclear fusion consumes
power, rather than producing it. In the process of fusing two atoms
together, one of them fissions, by which power is released that is derived
from a 'heavy' isotope of hydrogen that had this power invested into it.
The only fusion fuel that that can be forced to fuse with enough power input, is a mixture of deuterium and tritium. Neither
of these heavy isotopes of hydrogen are readily
available. The deuterium exists in sea water in such low quantities that
half a million tons of sea water needs to be processed to obtain one ton
of 'heavy' water, from which one tenth of a ton of deuterium can be
obtained. All of this involves large-scale energy-intensive processes.
Tritium in turn does not exist naturally at all, but needs to transmuted
from lithium by charging it up with an intense neutron bombardment in a
nuclear fission reactor. In other words, every step along the way
requires large-scale energy inputs. In addition, the fusion/fission
reaction when it can be forced to occur, produces such high-energy neutron radiation that it destroys
the reactor vessel in which it is produced. To date, no metal exists that can withstand
a needed long-term
bombardment of this intensity. Nevertheless the dream of cheap and vast
energy is kept alive with the full knowledge that it is but an empty
promise. Vast resources are devoted to the project, both in manpower,
finance, and materials, while readily available processes are blocked,
including processes that have been proved to deliver what fusion only promises, and for
which large quantities of fuel are readily available.
bottom line is that anything that has the potential to promote universal
prosperity and development is disallowed by the masters of the mud hole,
while the scientific pursuits
that are promoted by them are of a type that channel mankind's resources into dead-end pursuits, thereby
effectively stealing its future. This path is even more intensely
pursued at CERN, the European Nuclear Research Facility, the largest and
most complex facility ever created, which is designed to produce nothing
at all. It aims to pursue the science fiction dream of an alternate
reality, and also to prove that mass is the result of a particle instead
of a principle. The project 'consumes' a large assembly of scientific
talent from around the world, the largest ever, which thereby become unavailable for
tackling the practical challenges that must be solved to meet mankind's
physical needs for its existence.
(see: Experiencing Truth )
all the science fraud serves a sinister purpose. Often the purpose is
deeply hidden. The purpose for CERN appears to
be to prevent the real development of science, especially that of the
electric cosmology that promises infinite energy resources for mankind's
use, which the Earth is surrounded with according to all available
evidence. In order to prevent this science from being developed, a
massive fraud is needed that keeps the Big-Bang cosmology alive that is
a fraud itself,
which sees a universe in which only gravity rules and electric power
does not exist, ignoring the fact the 99.999% of the mass of the
Universe exists in the plasma state in which which electric currents
flow by the power of natural principles. The Big-Bang theory is needed
to maintain the myth in which the sun is seen as a nuclear fusion furnace
that is consuming itself and is winding down, just as the masters of
empire aim to convince mankind that its fast diminishing prosperity is a
natural process of entropy. The goal of this massive science fraud is
evidently to keep mankind impotent in its own sight, undeveloped, and
easily controlled for the purposes of exploitation as has been the
practice of empire since its dawn predating Rome.
Mary Baker Eddy's days
of the inhibiting factors stood in her way in her time as they do now.
Nevertheless she made honest scientific development the focal point of
her fourth river, Euphrates. Of course, most of the fraudulent
factors hadn't been in existence in her time, including the sly and
subtle one that is choking science today. This choking factor is called "peer review." Before any
scientific concept is given the stamp of legitimacy it is subjected to
peer review. The process not only renders science controllable by the
masters, but also
chokes it with the mud of mediocrity. Leading-edge concepts are thereby
typically prohibited. Mary Baker Eddy scientific achievements, for
example, would never have seen the light of day under the regime of peer
review, or consensus-based science as it is also called.
of science of the strangling effect of this mud bath that it got dragged
into, is evidently another one of those debts that Christ Jesus referred
to that need to be settled before one stands at the altar of God - of
Truth - understanding and acknowledging reality.
the challenges before mankind are far more numerous and immense in scope
than in Mary Baker Eddy's time, she presents us a tool that is
nevertheless efficient for mastering the challenges. It is found as a
profound declaration that is imbedded in her definition for the river Euphrates.
(river). Divine Science
encompassing the universe and man; the true idea of God; a type of
the glory which is to come; metaphysics taking the place of physics;
the reign of righteousness. The
atmosphere of human belief before it accepts sin, sickness, or
death; a state of mortal thought, the only error of which is
limitation; finity; the opposite of infinity.
As is plainly apparent, the
definitions comes in two parts, which, however, in the spiritual sense,
are indivisible and are really one single definition. And this is where
the key lays. The first part defines divine Science as being developed
to its highest divine manifest, while the second part keeps this highest
regime nevertheless accessible to universal humanity, even in an
atmosphere of human perception where the belief in limitation and finity
has not yet been ruled out but remains as the only (or final) fault.
divine Science placing us at the edge to the infinite domain, the scene
of mankind's world would be a hopeless scene indeed. It would imply that
the qualities of God are not accessible and demonstrable in practical
terms in the form of "metaphysics taking the place of physics," and
in "the reign of righteousness." It would also imply that
Christ Jesus could not have been able to heal, nor Mary Baker Eddy
likewise, or anyone else for that matter. But this has not been the
case. Instead, great events of healing have happened, and are still
happening, and are bound to be happening for evermore.
is not a helpless worm
is not legitimate for mankind to grovel in the dust and submit to its
destroyer, whether it be disease, fascism, poverty, or whatever. To do
so amounts to an active denial of God in human living. The great
challenge that divine Science places before mankind, is to master its
sense of finity and limitation, and thus become divinely human in all
respects. This is not a small challenge, of course, but one, as has
been well demonstrated, we all have the capacity to meet. In fact,
healing in divine Science is not merely a process for the restoration of
health, but is a process that uplifts the entire front of human living to
ever-fuller expressions of the divine nature. If this isn't the healing
goal in all respects, we are cheating ourselves and may not realize
anything, for the focus then is not high enough and not close enough to
Factor of "ALL"
The healing focus must also include the uplifting of the
civilization of our human world, creating a new and richer world,
individually and collectively, for divine Principle is universal in its
expression. Omitting this element in our healing pursuits would be a
form of denial of the universal nature of Principle, and thereby of
divine Principle itself. In Mary Baker Eddy's glossary definition of the
term God, one aspect is repeated over and over as if to drive the point
home, and this is the universal aspect, "all."
The great I AM
If this is ignored and
not reflected in what we call civilization, the term civilization does
not really apply, for to take the "all" out of our
relationship to one another amounts to a huge kick into the face of God.
The kick of indifference that allows murder, theft, destruction,
looting, lies, which has become the hallmark of the mud hole, is a
declaration that God that is all and is reflected in all, is dead and
never existed. Thus wars are unleashed, countries destroyed, industries eradicated,
cultures undermined, entire nations looted to the bone, prosperity
flushed down the drain leaving poverty, to the point that fascism reigns
unrestrained. On this path society destroys itself by denying the very
platform for its existence. This insanity threatens everyone in the mud
hole, the masters and the 'children' alike. Hence the need to become
conscious of the universal nature of the spiritual Universe where
nothing, or no one, is, or can be, excluded.
At the moral level the
kick of indifference is still a part of the scene, even of the scene
dubbed "Christianity." The Principle of Universal Love is
largely banned there. Love is small there, privatized, circumscribed,
conditionalized, shut out of sight by traditions and greed, the and
practice of completion rather than cooperation, with the scene still
being generally encumbered with indifference. Only at the Christ level
the divine universality, the "all," is rapidly coming to light
in human consciousness and indifference falls away. This is the zone
where healing begins, in Jesus' days as in our days. Time is not a
factor here, but our responding to the "all" is. And this is a
wide scene where this factor is unfolding.
challenging to even theoretically uplift one's loving into the universal domain to reflect the
Principle of Universal
divine Love. I
had started writing a novel in the 1980s to explore the dimension of the
Principle of Universal Love. The subject turned out to be far wider than
I had imagined. The novel became a
series of 12 novels (The Lodging for the Rose), so vast is this subject and its challenges as
mankind has become deeply encumbered by its traditions and narrow perceptions,
surrounded by limits and finity on all sides.
the universal factor is an essential factor in healing, and its being
ignored appears to be reflected in the numerous critical critical
problems as society's inner collapse proceeds. The opposite is also
evident. Many who are deeply committed to the universal welfare of
mankind tend to enjoy a healthier and more vigorous existence. For
example, the celebrated civil rights heroin Amelia Boynton Robinson, was
still giving speeches at the age of near 100. Lyndon LaRouche, America's
leading economist and political activist for the Principle of the
General Welfare, now approaching 88 years of age, is still active,
routinely making four-hour speeches, organizing international meetings,
and advancing scientific perceptions . Mary Baker Eddy, herself, founded
the Christian Science Monitor, a major newspaper, at the age of 87.
While age itself isn't the key factor here, the devotion to the divine
"all" - to universal good - is evidently a healthy and
health-giving factor in individual living, just as it had been a factor for
spiritual healing across the ages and still is.
is also interesting to note in this context that the period leading up
to Mary Baker Eddy's discovery in 1866, in which the divine
"all" became a leading feature, coincides with the unfolding
of the only major period of peace in the world since the end of the
Golden Renaissance - which ended shortly after her death in December
1910. While it is impossible to determine what would have happened in
the world had her discovery not been made and been extensively
developed, the conscience of the period of her pioneering
work with a great period of peace, coinciding almost to the year, is
nevertheless remarkable. It might also be highly significant. One
simply has no empirical evidence of what the world would have been like
had profound events not occurred, that have occurred. Nevertheless it is
not illogical to assume that the occurrence of great spiritual events
with a universal focus at their root, did have put their stamp on time
in a manner that has changed the world, dynamically, for a season,
especially for as long as the driving force behind these events was
strong. This too, reflects the principle of "metaphysics taking the
place of physics."
this reason I have emphasized the need for strengthening our healing focus
in the universal dimension in many of the explorations on this page, as the divine
factor of "all" cannot be ignored in the healing context, but has
far-more deep-reaching implications than we tend to acknowledge.
we do have some empirical evidence that society's focus on the factor of
has an uplifting effect. The evidence is rather strong and glaring when
we look at what has resulted from ignoring this factor, or from
society's willful moving against it. We find this evidence in the
coincidence of two related trends: 1
- the vast and rapid proliferation
of millionaires and billionaires in society. 2
- the almost universal and rapid
collapse of civilization on every critical front, including culture,
education, employment, housing, science, energy, finance,
transportation, food security, social security, health care, the rise of
war and fascism and hostilities, de-industrialization, environmental
collapse, and so on. Both trends unfolded in lock-step with each other.
It is illogical to assume that there is no connection between the
first trend reflects a growing denial of the factor of "all"
in the perception of good. The proliferation of millionaires and
billionaires in society reflects a commitment in society to stealing
from one another, which is manifest in the privatization of the general
wealth of society instead the promotion of the wealth of "all"
as a quality of good. The second trend reflects the outcome of the
first trend. And so it will always be until the connection is
recognized, whereby society impels itself to climb out of its
self-created mud hole. Right now one sees no evidence that society is
inclined to move in this direction, or is even remotely interested in
healing itself of the deeply rooted disease that has festered for
millennia already and has become more deadly to it in numbers than all
the diseases in history combined. More than a billion people are
presently forced to live in chronic starvation with an increasingly
shorter life-span, and the current trend is for their ranks to grow into
four or five billion as more and more of society's infrastructures for
living become privatized and destroyed, and the ranks of the
factor of "all"
is imbedded in what has long been termed the Golden Rule, or the Divine
Rule, a rule that wisdom has expressed throughout the ages: "do
unto others as you would have them do unto you." The Golden Rule is
not an empty rule, but a statement of the nature of power in human
affairs; an acknowledgment of the "all" as an inseparable
element of good. Mary Baker Eddy focused on the primary importance
of the Golden Rule in dedicatory message for the dedication of the great
"temple of Christian Science" in Boston (on June 10, 1906),
saying to the thirty thousand who had come for the ceremony:
comes to reveal man as God's image, His idea, coexistent with Him -
God giving all and man having all that God gives. Whence,
then, came the creation of matter, sin, and death, mortal pride and
power, prestige or privilege? The First Commandment of the
Hebrew Decalogue, "Thou shalt have no other gods before
me," and the Golden Rule
are the all-in-all of Christian Science.
They are the spiritual idealism and realism which, when realized,
constitute a Christian Scientist... (My.
She incorporated the
Golden Rule, as it were a summary, into the
last tenet of Christian Science, which is also the last paragraph of
her class book that she used until it came a chapter of the textbook,
the chapter Recapitulation, the last chapter in Science and Health.
recently one has seen little evidence that society has shown any
willingness to move in this direction, but the tide appears to be
changing. While kings of the thieves now own much of the world,
including the governments of many nations, and have done their utmost by
controlling the media and entertainment, to prevent society from
discovering itself in its divine qualities, a trend has been unfolding,
faint as it may be, into a new direction towards the truth of being and
its divine principles. Over the years four types of society have come to
the foreground in various stages that are reflective of the four levels
that are expressed in each of the four columns of the foursquare
The lowest level,
of course, represents the mud-hole-captivated society. It requires no
the level above, the moral
level, we find the so-called socialist society. It aims to correct the
grosses feature of the mud-hole world, by stealing back from the
wealthy what the wealthy have stolen from society. Its features a
slight sense of the principle of "all" as a component of
good. But it remains committed to stealing.
the next higher level, the
Christ level, the level of science and spiritual recognition, various
types of attempts have been made to supplant the process of stealing
wealth with the process of wealth-creation, which is strongly focused
onto the Principle of the General Welfare, reflecting to some
degree the divine "all" principle. The Federal Constitution
of the USA reflects a very strong commitment in this direction,
perhaps the strongest in the world. The communist intention is leaning
in that direction, but falls far short of implementing it as it lacks
the underlying commitment to the development of the human genius as
such a development endangers the structure of a totalitarian system.
There were times in American history when the U.S. society was
strongly committed to the development of the human genius and the
divine factor of "all" on as wide a basis as possible. Those
were typically times of prosperity, brief as they were in duration.
the top-level, the level of
divine Spirit, we have the great potential that is slowly becoming
recognized that is inherent in the divine nature of man as a creator
and producer, and above all a scientific being with a thereby near
infinite capability of creative and productive power, and a commitment
to its expression for the good of all mankind, such as we find it
expressed in the development of great projects for the universal
benefit of all mankind. An example of this type is the NAWAPA
project for uplifting the entire biosphere in which we live, by
greening the deserts, and not only in the geographic sense, but also
socially, technologically, scientifically, and economically where many
'desert areas' now exist. Another global development project that has
been tossed around for many decades already to create an
infrastructure link across the Bearing Straight, between the American
and Eurasian Continents, either with a bridge or a tunnel, for the
more-efficient cooperative development of both continents. With
advancing technological power the concept of intercontinental
bridges is becoming increasingly realizable, which may inspire
society one day to uplift itself sufficiently to utilize its capability
to create a new and incredibly rich world for itself, were misery and
poverty presently rule. The divine factor of the "all"
stands squarely at the center of the door to this new world. Of
course, whether we will see the realization of the potential that we
presently have, depends on our own answer to this question that will
determine our motives and acts.
foursquare structure is seen as a 'global' structure
With the rows and columns defined, it becomes useful
for us to apply all the associated 'global' structures that Mary Baker Eddy
has provided for the foursquare structure. There are two types of them. The development
type and the platform type.
The foursquare structure
can been seen as a structure of individual elements that inherit the
characteristic of the level (or row) at which they are located, and also
the characteristics of the column that they are a part of. In this context
large structures can be globally associated with the foursquare structure
in a manner that gives each element a special meaning.
There exist two types of
structures that can be associated with the foursquare structure in a global
manner. One type is a structure that is internally arranged in a developmental
type of sequence where the sequence begins with the lowest element, progressing
upwards. The other type of structure is one that is arranged in a platform-type
fashion were the sequence begins with the highest element, progressing downward
to what lies below. Mary Baker Eddy utilized both types.
Applying the development-type structures
The application of development-type
structures logically begins at the lowest element in the first
column and end with the highest element in the last column.
Mary Baker Eddy provided
three major development-type structures that cover all 16 elements. These are:
The 16 verses
and illustrations in Christ and Christmas,
The 16 textbook chapters,
stanzas of the Lord's prayer,
with the spiritual sense added,
The three associated
structures are shown applied below, associated element by element in their respective
utility for this type of association comes to light, for example, when a textbook
citation appears in the
Bible Lessons, whereby the textbook citation can be located in respect to its relationship
to the scientific development structure, both in terms of its 'cardinal
point' and in terms of the logical river it belongs to, as is shown below,
enhances the citation's meaning.
In addition the applicable stanza of the Lord's
Prayer is thereby associated with the citation, and likewise the
applicable metaphor from Christ and Christmas, both visually and by verse.
With the addition of these backgrounds, the meaning of a textbook citation
is still further enhanced.
