To Conquer Space
Ten million years ago a galaxy exploded. A recent issue of The Christian Science Monitor carried the picture. This explosion could have been the beginning of the formation of countless new worlds. If such was the case, the development of these worlds has already gone on for thousands of centuries. But it has taken the light which our cameras recorded ten million years to reach the earth.
Many physicists tell us that present knowledge does not present the possibility of space travel by any means at a speed exceeding the speed of light. If we were to board a spaceship and travel at this so-called maximum speed, it would take us ten million years to reach this galaxy we have just now photographed as having exploded ten million years ago. But if it should somehow become possible to overcome this limited sense of speed so that we could arrive instantly at that point, we would find now existing the new worlds which have evolved during the ten million years since the explosion occurred.
Christian Science offers to the natural sciences a basis for research in an area of study where the speed-of-light limitation may be overcome. It offers the proposition that the speed of light is infinitesimally low when compared with the speed of mind. One can think himself anywhere, instantly.
