"No other consciousness"

In the scientific record of creation as set forth in the first chapter of Genesis, God established the firmament to divide "the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament." Gen. 1:7; According to Christian Science the firmament is spiritual understanding, with which we are able to distinguish between spiritual being and material existence. As our understanding increases concerning God as Spirit and man as His likeness, we cling less and less to materiality and seek to dwell more and more in spirituality, in the uplifted and enlightened consciousness in which we find all good—unbounded, real, eternal. "And God called the firmament Heaven." v. 8;

Christian Science shows that spiritual understanding is important because it is the way to attain health and happiness; that it is necessary because it is the only sure means of escape from evil; that its scope affords us unlimited opportunities to apply it.
