The Secret Doctrine
From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia
The Secret Doctrine (London, 1893) is a work by H.P. Blavatsky.
- The atom is elastic, ergo, the atom is divisible, and must consist of particles, or of sub-atoms. And these sub-atoms? They are either non-elastic, and in such case they represent no dynamic importance, or, they are elastic also; and in that case, they, too, are subject to divisibility. And thus ad infinitum. But infinite divisibility of atoms resolves matter into simple centers of force, i.e., precludes the possibility of conceiving matter as an objective substance. --Volume I, p. 519
