“It is, undoubtedly, one of the elements necessary to the constitution of the universe; but it has its source in a special modification of the universal matter, modified to that end. For you, it is an elementary body, like oxygen or hydrogen, which, nevertheless, are not primitive elements; for all bodies known to you, though appearing to you to be simple, are modification of the primal fluid.”

– This statement seems to imply that vitality is not due to a distinct primitive agent, but is a special property of the universal matter resulting from certain modifications of the latter.

“Your conclusion is the natural consequence of what we have stated.”

Matter and Spirit is 2 elements of the Universe indeed, but now we see that there is something linking both and giving “life” to matter: the vital element. It is considered as a third element but also comes from the modification of the matter, already an element of the Universe. But as the vital element is essential to life, and so, to incarnation of Spirits into matter; it can be considered as an element itself.

We now understand even more that the Universe provides one kind of primal fluid that modifies itself to provide an extremely huge, maybe infinite, range of matter.

we recommend this book for those who want to start practicing safely.
