Published by Ianhornsby
In 1875, the geophysicist Balfour Stewart and the mathematician P. G. Tait
published the second edition of The Unseen Universe. The book’s aim had
been ‘to overthrow materialism by a purely scientific argument’, and its
initial success, and the controversy it aroused, prompted this revised edition.
The treatise suggests that science and religion could be reconciled, and that
by using science, it could be proved that the soul survives after death. The
book begins with a historical account of the beliefs about the after-life of
ancient Egypt, the Greeks, Buddhism and Christianity. The authors then
refine a Ptolemaic vision of the universe in which the material universe
is surrounded by concentric, invisible universes. The Unseen Universe
discusses the nature of matter and ether, Newton’s laws, and the idea that,
through electromagnetism, the soul upon death transfers molecularly from
the visible to the invisible universe.
