From the February 1890 issue of The Christian Science Journal

" There is no life, substance, or intelligence in matter "is a fundamental statement of Christian Science; and the one that directly follows it in Science and Health, "God is Spirit, and man is His image and likeness, therefore man is spiritual and not material "—is a light shining into the darkness of materiality. The general mortal consciousness is a supposition of life in matter—the blending of matter with mind in some mysterious way—and the belief results, that when this combination is dissolved by the change called death, all consciousness of life is lost.
