MATHEMATICS AND SPIRITUAL PROGRESS

Many a beginner in Christian Science finds it difficult to grasp the conception of the infinity of Life, Truth, and Love; in other words, the conception of the allness of God. The writer has been helped to grasp this concept by a thought of mathematical relations, and he ventures to speak of it with the hope that it may be of help to others.

The student of arithmetic often indicates a case of division by the use of a common fraction, putting as the numerator the number to be divided, and as the denominator, the divisor. He gets as many common fractions as he has cases of division. When he advances to the study of algebra and uses the letters a, b, c, etc., instead of actual numbers, he still finds that he can indicate a case of division by a common fraction. For instance, if he wishes to divide some definite number that for the moment is represented by a by some other definite number that for the moment is represented by b, he uses the fractional form, a/b, and this means as much to him as did the fractions he manipulated in arithmetic.
