P. Is God, then, fabric? V. No. [This answer startled me a great deal. ] P. What, then, is he? V. [After an extended pause, and mutteringly. ] I see—but it's a factor tricky to inform. [Another lengthy pause. ] he isn't spirit, for he exists. neither is he subject, as you already know it. yet there are gradations of topic of which guy understands not anything; the grosser impelling the finer, the finer pervading the grosser. the ambience, for instance, impels the electrical precept, whereas the electrical precept permeates the ambience. those gradations of topic raise in rarity or fineness, till we arrive at an issue unparticled—without particles—indivisible—one; and right here the legislation of impulsion and permeation is changed. the final word or unparticled topic not just permeates all issues, yet impels all issues; and hence is all issues inside itself. This topic is God. What males try and include within the observe “thought,” is that this subject in movement. P. The metaphysicians retain that each one motion is reducible to movement and pondering, and that the latter is the beginning of the previous. V. certain; and that i now see the confusion of notion. movement is the motion of brain, no longer of considering. The unparticled topic, or God, in quiescence, is (as approximately as we will conceive it) what males name brain. And the facility of self-movement (equivalent in impression to human volition) is, within the unparticled subject, the results of its cohesion and omni-prevalence; how, i do know now not, and now sincerely see that I shall by no means comprehend. however the unparticled topic, set in movement by way of a legislation or caliber current inside itself, is considering. P. are you able to provide me not more designated inspiration of what you time period the unparticled topic? V. The issues of which guy is cognizant break out the senses in gradation. we've got, for instance, a steel, a bit of wooden, a drop of water, the ambience, a fuel, caloric, electrical energy, the luminiferous ether. Now, we name some of these issues subject, and embody all topic in a single common definition; yet having said that, there might be no rules extra primarily particular than that which we connect to a steel, and that which we connect to the luminiferous ether. once we achieve the latter, we think a nearly impossible to resist inclination to type it with spirit, or with nihility. the single attention which restrains us is our perception of its atomic structure; and right here, even, we need to search reduction from our proposal of an atom, as whatever owning in endless minuteness, solidity, palpability, weight. smash the assumption of the atomic structure and we must always now not be capable to regard the ether as an entity, or, at the very least, as topic. For wish of a higher be aware we'd time period it spirit. Take, now, a step past the luminiferous ether; conceive an issue as even more infrequent than the ether, as this ether is extra infrequent than the steel, and we arrive right away (in spite of all of the institution dogmas) at a different mass—an unparticled subject. For even if we may well admit endless littleness within the atoms themselves, the infinitude of littleness within the areas among them is an absurdity. there'll be a point—there can be a level of rarity at which, if the atoms are sufficiently quite a few, the interspaces needs to vanish, and the mass completely coalesce.
