The mortal senses—an individual's five windows on the material world, so to say—inform us of ailments, individual and national, and of physical and social disorder. What can we do to alleviate these difficulties and the suffering they bring?
We can acknowledge the intactness of being, despite testimony of the material senses to the contrary. The Science of God and man is superior to the talk of the senses—not the other way about. "The various contradictions of the Science of Mind by the material senses," Mary Baker Eddy says, "do not change the unseen Truth, which remains forever intact" (Science and Health, p. 481).
Our task is not a matter of becoming a better mortal man but of putting mortality aside as a false sense of man in exchange for God's permanently intact likeness. God made man that way, and He maintains the perfection of His image. Our unity, our co-being, with God is always in order.
