Part Nineteen - Page 1

  1. The search for truth is now a systematic process, and is logical in its operation. Every kind of experience is given a voice in shaping its decision.
  2. In seeking the truth we are seeking ultimate cause; we know that every human experience is an effect; then if we may ascertain the cause, and if we shall find that this cause is one which we can consciously control, the effect or the experience will be within our control also.
  3. Human experience will then be controlled; a person will be the child of destiny. Fate and fortune will be controlled as readily as a captain controls their ship, or an engineer their train.
  4. All things are finally resolvable into the same element and as they are thus translatable, one into the other, they must ever be in relation and may always be in agreement to one another.
  5. In the physical world there are innumerable contrasts, and these may for convenience sake, be designated by distinctive names. There are sizes, colors, shades or ends to all things. There is a North Pole, and a South Pole, an inside and an outside, a seen and an unseen, but these expressions merely serve to place extremes in contrast.
  6. They are names given to two different parts of one quantity. The two extremes are relative; they are the same entity, and are two parts or aspects of the whole.
  7. In the mental world we find the same law; we speak of knowledge and a single word that means a lack of knowledge, but this single word is but a lack of knowledge and is therefore found to be simply a word to express the absence of knowledge; it has no principle in itself.
