ONLY A CONCEPT

Does matter have substance? This author says no.

From the January 2009 issue of The Christian Science Journal


I ONCE CAME ACROSS A PHYSICIST'S OBSERVATION that a material thing we see, which we believe to be matter, is actually an impression made upon thought by light, which we've unconsciously objectified. The physicist went on to explain that this is also true of the phenomena of all the material senses, and added that what we think we see, hear, feel, touch, or smell is not an object exterior to consciousness, but is an impression made on consciousness.
