"Scientific self-correction"

THE human consciousness is the arena in which seems to be fought out the battle between the spiritual evidence of everlasting harmony and the lying testimony of the material senses. In reality there is no battle, since Truth is indestructible, omnipresent, and infinite, whereas matter is nonexistent.

What is the struggle, then, that appears to be going on in the human experience of each individual? Is it not the dispelling of ignorance and false belief by means of the knowledge of Truth? Is it not ignorance which seems to resist knowledge and face progressive ideals with stubborn opposition? But in the final outcome it is obvious that ignorance, being negative, has no inherent power to resist true knowledge, which is positive — just as darkness has no power to resist light.
