On page 111 of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mrs. Eddy defines the term demonstration as it is used in Christian Science. Beginning at the eleventh line of the page she writes: "The Principle of divine metaphysics is God; the practice of divine metaphysics is the utilization of the power of Truth over error; its rules demonstrate its Science." It is a sentence brimful of meaning and of tremendous import to the human race, dipping deep beneath the superficial aspects of human experience and inviting to the consideration of absolute spiritual fact.

In investigating demonstration several questions immediately arise, such as, What has to be demonstrated? and, Over what has the demonstration to be made? These questions must be considered from the standpoint of absolute metaphysics. The divine and the human seem to present themselves; when in fact there is nothing but the divine, and, as Christian Science is continually pointing out, the regeneration of the individual from disease or sin consists in the overcoming of the human sense of things with all its erroneous and limited material beliefs, through the realization of the spiritual sense of reality.
