BEHOLD, I SEE!

A Recent press dispatch states that medical experiments have brought to light the fact that according to physical science the material eye does not intelligently discern of itself, but that seeing is an educated faculty. It was found that chimpanzees born and raised in utter darkness could not see at all when first brought into the light, but could be trained to see objects through the method of first letting them feel them.

This interesting discovery corroborates a statement made by the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, years ago. In "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 58) she affirms, "As matter, the eye cannot see; and as mortal mind, it is a belief that sees." Since seeing is wholly a mental process, it becomes evident that a person either sees or not according to the belief he entertains about it, and that to eliminate a lack of vision one must improve his understanding of what constitutes true vision or perception.
