DEFINITION

Philosophy has been defined as the rove of


wisdom.
A systematicgeneralconceptionof principle as

causeof all

cosmic philosophy embracesthe universe conceived
as an orderly and harmonious systemcomprete
in itserf.
our presentperception of mind and matter must
be
expanded to the realm of cause in order to understand
and take our place in the class room of everlasting
learning.
observation is our greatestteacherbut we must learn
to see the cause or the related purpose of all forms
or
manifestations.
Principle, or source of origin, and nature,slaws re-
main forever the same for they are immutable. Man,s
concept of the law expands as he desiresto know more
and more of his purposein relation to the cosmos.
our neighborson the sister planets of our solar sys-
tem came to the realization a long time ago that every
minutestparticle in the cosmos is inter-relatedwith every
other particle. Thereby in order to have even a small per-
ception of the purposeof life, each phasemust be studied
in relation to the whole. They shared a theory with all
who were interested and gradually theories grew into
facts as they explored further and further and unified ail

and man finds himself wondering just what is truth.
As long as man has been in existenceI supposehe
has sought for truth without recognizingit when he had
it firmly in his grasp.
Many generationsago when the Roman Empire was
at the height of her glory and the weight of her dom-
inance was felt by a host of people there arose in her
midst a master mind who said to those oppressed,"you
shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free."
And the people eager for deliverance,cried out, "The
truth! Give us the truth that we may be free!" They were
told the meaningof truth but they could not comprehend
and so we hear the echo of thosewords and of the billions
like them quivering down the ages with an insistent
appeal- "The truth! what is truth?"

calling, "Follow me, I alonecan give you the real truth!"
