The substance of sight is Mind

If someone said to you that sight and hearing are mental, would you believe him? Or would you argue that they are dependent upon physical organs and subject to material conditions?

Mrs. Eddy says of Christ Jesus, "His earthly mission was to translate substance into its original meaning, Mind." Miscellaneous Writings, p. 74;

If the substance of true sight and hearing is incorporeal Mind— that is, Spirit, or God—these faculties cannot be impaired by accident or disease, nor can they be limited by what are termed birth defects. If the substance of these senses is spiritual, then they are indestructible and perfect even as Spirit, Mind, is. They cannot deteriorate or diminish any more than Mind can. They are wholly mental—not mortally mental but divinely mental.
