The Christian Scientist feels that the creator has provided a science which is as practical in solving his life-problems as the science of mathematics is practical to the mathematician in solving his problems. The science of mathematics has its fundamental law from which all is derived, upon which all depends, and which includes the all of mathematics. The Science of Mind has its Principle, the one originating Mind, one God; from whom man is derived, upon whom man depends, and who includes all that really exists.

Because the Christian Scientist regards man as the idea of Mind, just as the mathematician regards numbers as ideas of mentality, he holds that what is true philosophy in dealing with the problems of mathematics is true philosophy in dealing with the problems of mankind. In mathematics, certain problems present themselves and certain fixed and invariable rules prevail for their solution. The mathematician, in working out his problem, when he fails of the correct answer has an exact method of procedure. He finds the mistake and corrects the error through the right understanding of the truth. He knows the truth and the truth makes him free from the discord. The mistakes in the mathematical problem are made apparent by misplaced figures. For these mistakes the figures are not held responsible. To correct the mistakes, the human mind which made them must be corrected. Free mortal mind from mistakes and the problem will be free from mistakes.
