36. The absolute vacuum exists somewhere in the  universal Space?
No, there is no vacuum. What do you think is empty occupied by matter that escapes you to the senses and instruments.

30. The matter consists of one or many elements?
In one primitive element. The bodies you consider simply are not true elements. They are transformations of the primitive matter.

31. From where originate the various properties of matter?
They are modifications that the elementary molecules suffer, as a result of their union, under certain circumstances.

If the matter exists, then everything that exists has a cause. And this cause is God.

What is God? Part 2.

6. The intimate feeling we have of the existence of God does not could be the result of education, the result of acquired ideas?
If so, why would exist in the savage men this feeling?” If the feeling of the existence of a supreme being was so-only product of a school would not be universal, and not exist but in which they had been able to receive this teaching, as it is with the scientific notions.

7. One may find the intimate properties of matter at primary cause of the formation of things?
But then, what would be the cause of these propertiesIt is indispensable always a primary cause. ”  To attribute the first formation of things to the intimate properties
of matter, would be to take the effect for the cause, because these properties are themselves an effect, which is to have a cause.

If the matter exists, then everything that exists has a cause. And this cause is God.

8. What is to be thought of the opinion that attributes the first formation to a fortuitous combination of matter, or, on the other, by chance? (Accident)
Another absurdity! Which common sense man can consider the chance an intelligent being? And, too, what is the chance? Nothing.”
The existing harmony in the universe mechanism patents combinations and certain plans and, therefore, reveals an intelligent power. To attribute the first formation by chance is folly, because that chance is blind and can not produce the effects that intelligence produces.  An intelligent chance would no longer happen.

And I could tell: An intelligent chance then, is God.
So, we realize that the physical body, the cycles that follow one another, the globe temperatures, the formation of our planet, all this follows an order and mathematical laws.
Nowadays astronomer through mathematics, can even identify, even without seeing if there is a star here and there, through the universal harmony.
So to imagine that chance is so smart, it is we want to give God’s name, calling him as chance”.

We can calling him of what we want, because in reality, he works in silence he does not force us to accept him.

He allows us to walk in direction to moral maturity. Maturity of the moral senseso that we can sees him.

Because in reality, we will not see God with the eyes of the matter.

There are spirits who arrive in the spirit world, and during the mediumship meetings, we are in contact with these entities and they say, ‘look I did not find God there!
And because they are trying to see God as one old man with a white beard on a throne.
So, we have to explain, “look, we can only feel and see God with the eyes of spirit. No use, we will not find the kingdom of heaven and God on the outside. We can understand God by the laws that he created: Laws of harmony, love and peace. But understand in essence, for now, it is not possible

9. How is that the primary cause, reveals an intelligence supreme and superior to all intelligences?
You have a proverb that says: By the work is recognized the author. Very well! Look the work and seek the author.

Pride is that generates disbelief. The proud man admits nothing above him. That’s why he calls himself a strong spirit. Poor being, a breath of God can slaughter!
Of the power of intelligence is judged by their works. No human being can create what nature produces. The primary cause is, consequently, a superior intelligence than the Humanity. 

Whatever the wonders that human intelligence has operated itself has a cause, and the greater the that operates, the greater is to be the primary cause. That superior intelligence is that it is the primary cause of all things, whatever name you give it.

10. Can a man comprehend the essential nature of God?
“No; he lacks for that sense.

11. will be given one day, to the man to understand the mystery of Divinity?
“When he no longer has the spirit obscured by matter.
When, by his perfection, if approached of God, he will see and understand.

The inferiority of the human faculties, does not allow him understand the essential nature of God. In the childhood of humanity, man confuses God, often with the creature, whose imperfections attributed to him; but, as it develops the moral sense, his thought penetrates better in the heart of thingsthen get fairer idea of the Godhead, and yet always incomplete.

12. Although we can not comprehend the essential nature of God, can we form some idea of his perfections?

“In some, yes. The man understands better the proportion as soon as rises over matter. He see indistinctly by thought.

13. When we say that God is eternal, infinite, immutable, immaterial, unique, omnipotent, supremely just and good, we have complete idea of His attributes?

From your point of view, yes, because you believe to cover all.

But know this, that there are things that they are above the intelligence the smartest man, which your language restricted to your ideas and sensations, has no meansto express.

The reason, in effect, tells you that God must have
supreme in these perfections degree, because if there is a lack, or were not infinite, since it would not exceed everything, would not therefore be God. To stand up of all things, God has to find free from any vicissitudes and any imperfections that imagination can conceive.

God is eternal.
If he had principle, would come from nowhereor else it would have also been created by a previous being. And so that from step by step, reascend to infinity and eternity.
He is immutable.
If it were subject to changethe laws that govern the universe would have no stability.
He is immaterial.
This means its nature differs from everything that we call matter. Otherwise, it would not
immutable, because he would be subject to transformations of matter.
He is unique.
If many Gods there had been there would be no unity views, or power unit in the ordering of the universe.
He is omnipotent.
He is, because he is unique. If did not possess the sovereign power, something would be more powerful or as powerful as him, which then, he would not have done all things. Those things that he haven´t done, would be the work of another God. 

It is supremely just and good. The providential wisdom ofdivine laws is revealed thus in the smallest things, like the largest, and that wisdom does not allow one doubts, nor the justice or God’s goodness.

Dark Matter & Dark Energy

30. The matter consists of one or many elements?
In one primitive element. The bodies you consider simply are not true elements. They are transformations of the primitive matter.

31. From where originate the various properties of matter?
They are modifications that the elementary molecules suffer, as a result of their union, under certain circumstances.

32. According to what you come to say, the flavors, the smells, the colors, the sound, the poisonous qualities or salutary bodies are merely modifications one primitive substance?
“Without a doubt and that there are only due to the disposal of organs for perceiving them.
The demonstration of this principle lies in the fact that not all realize the qualities of bodies in the same way: while that something appeals to the taste of one,  for the other it is detestable; what some see blue, others see red; what for some is poison to others is harmless or beneficial.

33. The same elementary matter, is likely to experience all modifications, and acquire all the properties?
Yes, and this is what is meant when we say everything is in everything!

Oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen, carbon and all bodies,that we consider simple, are mere modifications of a primitive substance. Failing in that we still think reassembling, except for the thought, this primary matter, these bodies are for us true elements and can, without major consequences, having them as those until further notice.

35. The universal space is infinite or limited?
“Infinite.     It is assumed in the limited: there will be beyond their limits? This confuses you the reason, I know it; however, the Reason tells you that can not be otherwise. The same
gives with the infinite in all things. It is in the small sphere where do you suppose that you will be able to understand it.

36. Does the absolute vacuum exists somewhere in the  universal Space?
No, there is no vacuum. What do you think is empty occupied by matter that escapes you to the senses and instruments.
