"Animal Magnetism Unmasked"

A Man beginning to learn about Christian Science earnestly desired to serve his country. Being overage for the armed forces he happily found employment in a defense plant as an inspector of bomber propellers. In order to secure this employment he had to pass an exacting eye test, which he did by applying to himself and realizing the significance of Mary Baker Eddy's definition of "eyes" in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 586), "Spiritual discernment,—not material but mental."

His new work demanded perfect vision. The machine he operated used electrical magnetism to reveal flaws in the metal structure of the propeller blades. Any weakness, even if extremely minute, would, unless perceived and corrected, shatter blades under the centrifugal force of high-speed revolutions.
