"One truth discovered is immortal, and entitles its author to be so," wrote Hazlitt in "The Spirit of the Age." Not the discovery of one truth alone, but the discovery of the truth about all Truth was Mary Baker Eddy's contribution to this and every future age. On page 504 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" she writes, "The rays of infinite Truth, when gathered into the focus of ideas, bring light instantaneously, whereas a thousand years of human doctrines, hypotheses, and vague conjectures emit no such effulgence."

The Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, by perceiving God's and therefore Spirit's allness, perceived also logically and scientifically the nothingness of matter. By setting forth her discovery in its scientific application to every problem which besets mankind, she showed the false premise and conclusion of those "human doctrines, hypotheses, and vague conjectures" with which every phase of religious, medical, political, and intellectual teaching has been weakened and undermined. In this focus of ideas, whence all light radiates, there is perceived complete and perfect co-ordination and adjustment of each to all; the harmonious relationship of every idea in the universal plan is seen outlined, illumined, governed by divine Principle.
