CHAPTER I Inter-Relationship of the Two Worlds 
THE reality of an invisible world surrounding the physical world is formany difficult to comprehend, since the mind sphere is often limited to thevisible and tangible; however, it requires but little thought to realize theconstant change of matter as it occurs in three forms, solid, liquid andgaseous, in its range back and forth between the visible and invisible.Visible nature is but the invisible, the Real, made manifest through acombination of its elements; science informs us that fully ninety-five per

cent of vegetation is derived out of the air, or atmosphere. Is not mankindliving at the bottom of an invisible ocean, the atmosphere, which is evenmore important to physical existence than any of the visible physicalsubstances, since life can continue but a few moments out of it?Nitrogen gas, constituting the greater bulk of the atmosphere, entersvitally into vegetable and animal growth and existence. Hydrogen and oxygengases are constantly changing from a state of invisible vapor to visible andsolid form. Carbon offers another example of similar transformation. Sounds,odors, the thermic law of heat and cold. and multitudes of other phenomena,ranging from the infinitesimal electron to the energy which moves the planetsand suns, are all intangible, invisible factors.All activities, whether chemical, vital or mental, operate invisibly, asobserved in chemical affinity, in energy, in plant life, in animal life, inintelligence and mentalization. So in every department of our manifestphysical nature it is evident that all elements have their root and permanencein the invisible. The invisible is the source of the visible.Thus when we realize that the objective is only a combination of invisible substances and forces, the existence of an unseen world is readilycomprehensible. Considering the wonderful advancement of science into thefield of nature's finer forces, it is inconceivable that any thinking mind canfail to recognize the rationale of the independent existence of the human spirit apartfor thephysical body. No subject has been better authenticated through the ages andin all literature than that of spirit existence and a future life.Fiske, the historian, says: "Among all races of men, as far as can now bedetermined, ancestor worship" (contact with the spirits of the departed) "wasthe earliest form of worship. . . . prevailing in Africa, Asia, China, Japan,among the Aryans of Europe and the American Indian tribes."Allen, in his "History of Civilization" writes: "Rude tribes the world overare found to have ideas of a human soul, a spirit world, and generally a belief in immortality. Savages consider the next life simply a continuation of this;they also recognize an other self which has mysterious powers. Death is theabandoning of the body by this mysterious other self, which is conceived of as still existing in the near neighborhood. The loves and hates of this worldare transferred to the spirit world."Confucius said: "Bemoan not the departed with excessive grief. The deadare devoted and faithful friends; they are ever associated with us."
