METAPHYSICAL SCIENCE, August,1876 -2

Truth and reality are found only in God and His idea. Mate­rial man and all material things are but mortality, and without life in themselves. They are the semblance merely of the true idea of God. They are animate only through reflected Life, through or by the eternal spiritual Life; like shadows they only have motion, action, volition, in answer to the volition of their Principle, which is the idea of God whose substance is God. Thus the human body, mortal matter, is nothing, the very essence of nothing. It has neither life, substance nor intelligence. Sub­stance is without change and decay. Life and intelligence are of God, universal Soul, Spirit, Mind, and are not embraced in mortal flesh.  Mary Baker Eddy  (Carpenter, Gilbert, Essays On Christian Science, p.75)
