Dispelling the Adamic Dream

ON page 70 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mary Baker Eddy writes, "Mortal existence is an enigma." To the attempt to solve this enigma, the talent and genius of the centuries have been dedicated: books have been written; multitudes of theories have been advanced; schools of philosophy have been founded, and analyses of causes and effects have abounded in such number as to make one wonder what more could be offered by way of solution. In spite of all these efforts, the enigma of mortal existence remained unsolved; and one might be inclined to agree with the philosopher who humorously wrote,

"All our dreaming and all our scheming since the days of yore,
Seem to land us just precisely where we were before."
