6 Mortal mind conceives of something as either liquid or solid, and then classifies it materially. Immortal and Good indefinablespiritual facts exist apart from this mortal and 9material conception. God, good, is self-exist‐ent and self-expressed, though indefinable as a whole. Every step towards goodness is a departure from materi‐12ality, and is a tendency towards God, Spirit. Material theories partially paralyze this attraction towards infinite and eternal good by an opposite attraction towards the 15finite, temporary, and discordant.
Mozart experienced more than he expressed. The 21rapture of his grandest symphonies was never heard. He Music, rhythm of head and heartwas a musician beyond what the world knew. This was even more strikingly true of Bee‐24thoven, who was so long hopelessly deaf. Men‐tal melodies and strains of sweetest music supersede con‐scious sound. Music is the rhythm of head and heart. 27Mortal mind is the harp of many strings, discoursing either discord or harmony according as the hand, which sweeps over it, is human or divine.
30 Before human knowledge dipped to its depths into a false sense of things, — into belief in material origins which discard the one Mind and true source of being, — 214 214:1it is possible that the impressions from Truth were as distinct as sound, and that they came as sound to the 3primitive prophets. If the medium of hearing is wholly spiritual, it is normal and indestructible.
