All the laws that govern the conditions of matter, and all the principles inherent or adherent to matter, hold good in the mind, because mind by material connection, physically necessary, is only a continuation of matter.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The natural element in which the mind subsists is the material ether, just as air is the element of living animals. The mental senses, emotions, and all mental conditions, are the resultants of the vibrations of ether acting on what may be called for the time the mental senses, which are affected exactly as the physical senses are. To put it another way, the ether is the clockwork of the machinery by which the indications or conditions of the mind are originated, continued, and made known.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The ether, as has been said, is material, and, therefore, all the principles of His inertial are as true in its metaphysical region as in its physical. As matter at rest it cannot move itself, nor as matter in motion can it bring itself to rest. Every motion of it is some intelligible vibratory code-signal. The force required to generate motion in it is not inconceivably small; for force is not necessarily small because the medium or active agent of it is invisible. Think of the storms caused by the invisible force, wind; think of the invisible force, wind, being caused by the invisible force, heat; think of the invisible force, heat, being caused by the invisible force, vibration.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Surely ether, the most attenuated and volatile of known substances, will be much more easily disturbed than the ocean or the air. A thought already in the mind will cause commotion in the ether; vibrations from the light of truth will move it, the wind of the spirit or the breath of the soul will disturb it; the motion of an angel's wing, the memory of the dead, the influence of the living, or the will of man or the will of God.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Great effects are constantly taking place that have no material or apparent cause, and yet they are caused; more easily than any of these is the production of vibratory agitation of the subtle ether, to which all the principles of matter are common.

The Veil Withdrawn
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We shall yet seek to raise the veil and to penetrate into the secrets of things.
— H. T. Buckle, 1836
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The substance of the brain is molecular. The mind which permeates the brain is inter-etheric in substance; it is the element by which the brain is impregnated. This element, when excited into action, controls all physical motion an long as the necessary sympathetic conditions are maintained. These conditions are no more immaterial in their character than are light and heat. Electricity, magnetism, gravity, and heat are latent in all aggregations of matter. They are not obtained from terrestrial influences.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The brain is the high resonating receptacle where the sympathetic celestial acts, and where molecular and atomic motion are induced, as according to the intensification brought to bear upon it by celestial radiation.
