Sight is an eternal faculty of infinite Mind, God. It is not organic and transient. Man, being God's idea, is endowed with this discernment—clear, distinct, and permanent.
Sight is the all-seeing activity of divine consciousness. This faculty is included in the omniaction of God. Its range is infinite, expressing the omnipresence of Mind; its clarity reflects the brilliance of Truth; its focus manifests the unchanging precision of divine Principle; and its permanency rests on the eternality of the one Ego. Thus true sight manifests the range, clarity, focus, and eternality of the divine consciousness.
Immortal Mind is the one self-existent cause, expressing itself in man and the universe. Mind's ideas are held within divine consciousness; they can never be external to it. The nature of every idea, its substance and form, is conceived and maintained by Mind. The creator is eternally conscious of every idea, both in its outline and in every delicate detail of its identity.
