We don't need to feel helpless when means of conveying messages, such as a postal service or telephone system, are threatened with delay or interruption. A metaphysician turns to God through scientific prayer for the answer to every challenge confronting him.
In finding an effective solution to communication problems, we might need to ask ourselves if we are putting the right kind of dependence on these modern provisions for transferring information. Obviously, progress in communication has been a boon to civilization. But instead of relying on the material methods themselves, we should become increasingly dependent on what made the distribution of thoughts possible: intelligence, vision, originality, inspiration.
Our mental reliance placed primarily on the human method of conveyance, instead of on the source of thought that inspired it, can lead to lingering frustration rather than quick solution if an interruption occurs—if the mail is delayed or halted, if an important phone call is cut off.
