HMRM years ago, Herbert Spencer said: "perfect correspondence
would be perfect life. Were there no changes in
theenvironment but such as the organism had adapted changes to
meet, and were it never to fail in the efficiency
with which it met them, there would be eternal existence and
eternal knowledge."

A century later. science presents another plan of "Perfect Life".
It asserts that"Hibernation could give man a life-
span of 1400 years". That was the startling headline of an
account in the press of 26 November 1961.

What would the organism gain by hibernation? A suspension of the
functions of eating I drinking, and
procreating. This seems to reveal the provisions of the Law of
Creation that rule the life-span. And these provisions
are possible of attainment.

It may amaze the reader to know that now some isolated cases are
reported of persons who live without eating,
drinking, and procreating. One is mentioned in my book, "Long
Life". as a woman of 68 who has eaten nothing for
56 years. and is reported to look and act like a girl- of 16.

What is possible for one is possible for millions. It seems the
"Law of Perfect Life" has been discovered. It may
be stated thus:

If man consumed only Cosmic Radiation thru his breathing organs
as he did in the beginning when he lived for
thousands of years in the Golden Age, if that Radiation was never
polluted, and if man refrained from exercising the
procreative function, sickness would be impossible, decreptitude
would be unknown, and longevity would be

This datum discloses the dangerous state of the artificial world
called civilization. It appears more hazardous than
a jungle of wild beasts. Man is beset on all sides by temptations
designed to create unnatural desire for evils which
destroy him. He must sink into a deep sleep to save him from this

The dangers of desire were recognized by tile ancient masters,
who said, "The understanding of man is obscured
by this foe called desire. It rageth like fire, and is difficult
of being extinguished. The senses and the mind are its
seat. and thru these it serves to confuse and confound their
discrimination. Thy first task is to conquer this foul
dweller of the mind . Mastering first the senses and the sense
organs, do thou then proceed to put to death this thing
of evil." (Bhagavad Gita.)

In the Bible, the Great Red Dragon represents the sensation of
desire in all its various gradations, from the
vaguest yearnings and mere promptings of the appetites of the
body, down to the grossest phases of passion and

For ages. man has been an abject slave of desire. And science
sees no hope of escape from its ravages save for
him to sink into the dormant state of hibernation.

Shall we thus surrender to evil, or con

A number of years ago, I was in my office meditating, as I have
done for many a year. After the period was over,
I opened my eyes and, looking at the inner door of the office, to
my amazement I saw on the door sill a large spider,
chinese red in color. The body of the spider, or whatever it
might be called, was as big, or bigger, than the palm of
my hand, and the extending legs were longer than my fingers. It
was there quite awhile, wriggling, the body moving
slowly, the bright red glistening as I watched it for 10 or 15
seconds. However, when I started to get up, it instantly
vanished, increasing my amazement. I've seen many "out of this
world" things with my eyes closed, but this is the
first I'd ever seen, in bright daylight, with my eyes wide open,
and me fully

awake. Dr. Marcus Fite, Iellogg, Idaho.



God is, and all that is is God. and is ac-
ceptable to God.
Man ascribes to God his non-acceptance of
himself and other men; God accepts the ascrib-
ing, but does not uDbold it. Man's non-accep-
tance is, and for God its beingness is enough.
God created Man in the image of God. Man
creates God in the image of Man.
God does not impose upon Man the will of
God. Man creates the will of God for himself
and imposes it upon himself.
God is as God is; in the ways of his being-
ness Man creates the beingness of God and the
ways of the beingness of Man are created by God .
God is. and there is no way of the being-
ness of God save the way of beingness of all
creation, which is God and which God is. But
this Is not all that God is.
God's bounty grants to Man all that he de-
sires or needs. Man has only to desire of the
bounty of God and it is his to accept.
God provides for Man in accordance with the
desires and the acceptances of Man. By his
acceptances are the desires of Man measured.
God has no thought of Man or for Man; what
Man thinks of and for himself, God thinks.
Man seeks to purify himself of his sin. For
God there is no sin except as Man conceives it .
What is, is: if Man seeks to purify himself of
what is, this also is.
Man is as he believes he is, and his belief
is and God accepts the belief.
Man is and the ways of his beingness he
creates for himself and for other men; and God
accepts Man's creation.
All things are created by desire to be and
once created are as they are. Of all things ,
only Man seeks to change the creation of his
beingness. And God accepts the seeking.
There are no doors to paradise, nor are
there gates to hell. Admission to either is by
quer it? desire, and God accepts both but imoses neither.
