Preface

To the few who love me and whom I love – to those who feel rather than to those who think – to the dreamers and those who put faith in dreams as in the only realities – I offer this Book of Truths, not ...

{An Essay on the Material and Spiritual Universe}

It is with humility really unassumed – it is with a sentiment even of awe – that I pen the opening sentence of this work: for of all conceivable subjects I approach the reader with the most solemn – the ...

{The Universe}

This thesis admits a choice between two modes of discussion: – We may ascend or descend. Beginning at our own point of view – at the Earth on which we stand – we may pass to the other planets ...

{Infinity of Space}

Let us begin, then, at once, with that merest of words, ›Infinity.‹ This, like ›God,‹ ›spirit,‹ and some other expressions of which the equivalents exist in all languages, is by no means the expression ...

{›Utmost conceivable expanse‹ of Space}

The fact is, that, upon the enunciation of any one of that class of terms to which ›Infinity‹ belongs – the class representing thoughts of thought – he who has a right to say that he thinks at ...

{Simplicity}

We have attained a point where only Intuition can aid us: – but now let me recur to the idea which I have already suggested as that alone which we can properly entertain of intuition. It is but ...

{Gravity}

In fact, I have attained a point at which it will be advisable to strengthen my position by reversing my processes. So far, we have gone on à priori, from an abstract consideration of Simplicity, ...

{Electricity}

In fact, while the tendency of the diffused atoms to return into Unity, will be recognized, at once, as the principle of the Newtonian Gravity, what I have spoken of as a repulsive influence prescribing ...

{Dr. Nichol}

Referring to the Newtonian Gravity, Dr. Nichol, the eloquent author of »The Architecture of the Heavens,« says: – »In truth we have no reason to suppose this great Law, as now revealed, to be the ultimate ...

{The ratio of condensation}

The radical assumptions of this Discourse suggest to me, and in fact imply, certain important modifications of the Nebular Theory as given by Laplace. The efforts of the repulsive power I have ...

{The Heart Divine}

Recurring, then, to a previous suggestion, let us understand the systems – let us understand each star, with its attendant planets – as but a Titanic atom existing in space with precisely the same inclination ...

{Life within Life}

Let not the merely seeming irreverence of this idea frighten our souls from that cool exercise of consciousness – from that deep tranquillity of selfinspection – through which alone we can hope to attain ...

{Movement directions}

And here let me fortify my position still farther, by the voice of a greater than Mädler – of one, moreover, to whom all the data of Mädler have long been familiar things, carefully and thoroughly ...
