each other, and the first step in organization takes place.The electron is then no longer a point mass, but a masshaving an axis of rotation, an arc orbit. The rapidity of motion, the size and shape of electrons involved,determine the nature of the atom which is eventuallyevolved.As long as the electrons continue to move indefinitely,they remain electrons. But when they are grouped in adefinite system, revolving about a central nucleus like aminiature solar system, they then constitute an atom of matter.These units, aggregated into different systems, form theelements. From the elements, in more complexcombination, the chemical substances are made. Theinorganic substances are relatively simple combinations of bases and acids. The organic substances are morecomplexly compounded, and these substances, or someof them when arranged in a mechanism called a cell, arecapable of certain processes: assimilation, excretion,growth, sensation, reproduction.When an organism works in a self-sustaining system, wesay that it is alive.
Form is the result of the concentration of matter, and theconcentration of matter implies the dissipation of motion.Wherever there is an aggregation of matter, there mustbe an equal absorption of motion.Involution and evolution alternate indefinitely. Bothprocesses are going on every instant, the ebb and flow of the forces of nature are ceaseless.All form, organic or inorganic, is the result of thecombination of Earth, Air, Fire, and Water, and each of these in turn are derived directly or indirectly from theSun. Without the energizing rays from the Sun, therecould be no possible motion.The Solar fluid is the Ether, which holds in the solutionevery possible form of matter. This ether in a state of high vibration is the breath of life, in its lower vibration itis inorganic form, or matter.All form is then a vibratory activity.
