Professor James, of Harvard University, has said : “All mental states lead to inconspicuous changes in breathing, circulation, general muscular tension, and glandular or other visceral activity, even if they do not lead to conspicuous movements of the muscles of voluntary life . . . all states of mind, even mere thoughts and feelings, are motor in their consequences."
"We are such stuff as dreams are made on and our little life is rounded with a sleep" (Shakespeare).
"And surely it is not a melancholy conceit to think we are all asleep in this world, and that the conceits of this life are as mere dreams" (Sir Thomas Browne).
“Wrong thinking, belief in a power other than that of God, is the primary cause of all disease and sin. This wrong thinking is clue to ignorance. Hence all disease is mental.
While the whole effect can be spoken of as ‘mental’, so it can also be
expressed as "material," and still better as "ethereal," for, as has been pointed out, these are merely different names for the same thing. All are purely illusory, and have no real existence and no reality, for they are not of God.”
In the nineteenth century Prince Hohenlohe-Waldenburg-Schillensfürst[http://pvrguymale.blogspot.ca/2012/03/miracle-cure.html], Canon of Grosswardein, was a healer of world renown. In one year, 1848-9, over 18,000 came from all over the world for treatment.
Professor James, one of the leading psychologists of modern times, writes in Psychology as follows: "Psychology is but a string of raw facts, a little gossip and a wrangle about opinions, a little classification and generalisation on the mere descriptive level, a strong prejudice that we have states of mind, and that our brain conditions them, but not a single law in the sense in which physics shows us laws. At present psychology is in the condition of physics before Galileo and the laws of motion, or of chemistry before Lavoisier."
"For that which troubled thee, whatsoever it was, was not without anywhere, but within, in thine own opinions, from whence it must be cast out before thou canst truly and constantly be at ease" Meditations (Marcus Aurelius)
"Human life is a dream and a journey in a strange land" (Marcus Aurelius)
"Matter, motion, and force, are not the reality, but the symbols of reality" (Herbert Spencer)
FROM A SCIENTIFIC AND RELIGIOUS POINT OF VIEW
THE PRACTICAL METHOD OF DESTROYING SIN, DISEASE, AND DEATH

The Society for Spreading the Knowledge of True Prayer (SSKTP) was formed with the object of helping people to understand the difference between prayer by supplication to God regarded as a. person or distant potentate to do something which would often be harmful if brought about, and prayer by the realisation of the perfection of God and man.
One of the most original writers in the English language.
Sir Thomas Browne (1605 – 1682) was an English author of varied works which reveal his wide learning in diverse fields including medicine, religion, science and the esoteric.
Browne's writings display a deep curiosity towards the natural world, influenced by the scientific revolution of Baconian enquiry, while his Christian faith exuded tolerance and goodwill towards humanity in an often intolerant era.
Browne is widely considered one of the most original writers in the English language.
The Father of Modern Chemistry.
Antoine-Laurent de Lavoisier (1743 – 1794), the "father of modern chemistry", was a French nobleman prominent in the histories of chemistry and biology. He named both oxygen (1778) and hydrogen (1783) and helped construct the metric system, put together the first extensive list of elements, and helped to reform chemical nomenclature. He was also the first to establish that sulfur was an element (1777) rather than a compound. Overall, his contributions are considered the most important in advancing chemistry to the level reached in physics and mathematics during the 18th century.
