Dispelling the myth of dualism

From the July 2023 issue of The Christian Science Journal

“Belief in a material basis, from which may be deduced all rationality, is slowly yielding to the idea of a metaphysical basis, looking away from matter to Mind as the cause of every effect. Materialistic hypotheses challenge metaphysics to meet in final combat. . . . 

“. . . Metaphysics is above physics, and matter does not enter into metaphysical premises or conclusions.” 

These prescient words were written over one hundred years ago by Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer of Christian Science, in her seminal work, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures (pp. 268, 269). And the world has not been the same since. The leaven of the great truth that all is divine Mind, God, is at work in human consciousness.
