15and mind, that Mind is in matter? Can the infinite be within the finite? And must not man have preexisted in the All and Only? Does an evil mind exist without
18space to occupy, power to act, or vanity to pretend that it is man?
If God is Mind and fills all space, is everywhere, matter
21is nowhere and sin is obsolete. If Mind, God, is all-power and all-presence, man is not met by another power and presence, that — obstructing his intelligence —

27Surely not from God, for He made man in His own likeness. Whence, then, is the atom or molecule called matter? Have attraction and cohesion formed it?
30But are these forces laws of matter, or laws of Mind?
For matter to be matter, it must have been self-created.
1Mind has no more power to evolve or to create matter than has good to produce evil. Matter is a misstatement
3of Mind; it is a lie, claiming to talk and disclaim against Truth; idolatry, having other gods; evil, having presence and power over omnipotence!
6Let us have a clearing up of abstractions. Let us come into the presence of Him who removeth all iniqui- ties, and healeth all our diseases. Let us attach our sense

12to the rolling of a world. Above Arcturus and his sons, broader than the solar system and higher than the at- mosphere of our planet, is the Science of mental
What is the kingdom of heaven? The abode of Spirit, the realm of the real. No matter is there, no night is
18there — nothing that maketh or worketh a lie. Is this kingdom afar off? No: it is ever-present here. The first to declare against this kingdom is matter. Shall
