Sample text

But it need not continue so. This is an embarrassment which arises in the course of advancing knowledge, but which ceases with the misapprehension from which it springs. The work of science is to rectify our thought of nature; to show us that the deadness we perceive is but our own. Here is the reward of all that patient toil; the rightful fruit of that prolonged investigation. The explanation of the universe which ignorance has supposed yields to a juster knowledge : there is not a defect in nature, but a want of life in man.

These three be the true stages of knowledge, and they are as the three acclamations, Sancte, Sancte, Sancte! holy in the description or dilatation of his works; holy in the connection or concatenation of them; and holy in the union of them in a perpetual and uniform law. LORD BACON W : Of the Advancement of Learning. ITH true action we necessarily connect moral conceptions. The ideas cannot be dissociated. And that to which moral conceptions apply is by all termed spiritual. For this reason the fact of nature has been affirmed to be the spiritual world.

Fact is that which truly and absolutely exists: the essential BEING of nature which we cannot think. Fact is that which is: Phenomenon is that which is to our conception : Appearance is that which is to our sense. Defect of knowledge makes appearances facts to us; defect of being makes phenomena facts to us. In the true life of man, the fact alone should be the fact to him, and phenomena should be but phenomena instead of being, as now, the realities of his existence : even as true knowledge is to know and feel appearances to be but appearances, instead of their being, as they are to ignorance, realities.
