THE failure of the philosophers, theologians, and medical men, in their researches with regard to the soul, the thought, and the dream, results entirely from their faulty systems. For no ignoramus will ever concede to us the smallest truth liable to shock his blind faith. But it is the more comfortless that the medical men, too, by attending the worthless so-called " divine services," have lost the right way and the truth for the sake of mere fables. This puerility is not only a characteristic of the stupid mob, but also of the learned mob. And because we do not write for womanly men, unable to think rationally, but for men loving the truth, we must go into its remotest consequences to see if the natural system is right or wrong. There is but one and unique truth. There can never be two truths. Every object has its proper electricity; every particle of this object, called atom, has its positive and negative pole. Every object has, therefore, its cumulative positive and negative pole. Every atom charged with electricity has two poles, and is called " ion." The chemical salts and acids have the peculiarity of being separated and giving to water the faculty to conduct electricity, and are therefore called " electrolytes." This separation is not at all times complete; for there are non-conducting molecules besides the ions; they are called "anions." The conducting power of the fluids is proportional to the number of ions. It is clear that the ions have a reciprocal influence, and produce a primary current as soon as they are in movement. For every movement causes an electrical current by friction, called hitherto magneto-electric current. The light is nothing but a movement, and the light only produces the images upon the...
