Judging the earth and its resources from a material basis and believing matter to be substance, mankind continually frets about the future. It believes that tomorrow is in peril, and that the human race faces extinction through depletion and exhaustion of the earth's resources by reason of utilization and subjection to the uses of mankind.

The senses have established for themselves erroneous laws. Among these laws is one commonly known as negative law. No sooner is a law rediscovered than an opposing or negative law seems to be a necessary accompanying corollary. Thus mortal mind is always halting between two opinions. It believes in two powers and grants the ruling power to the negative. It believes, for instance, that good is mastered by evil and joy by sorrow; that enrichment impoverishes, that life results in death. It believes in flux and reflux of forces rather than in permanence and stability, and that depletion must follow the meeting of human needs; hence that eventually the earth will be an unpeopled, sterile sphere.
