The universe consists of two elements: the dead
and the living one. Strict laws of physics govern the dead element. The essence of its activities are reduced to the formula:
"Cause and effect." It contains masses of "matter," mainly
in its coarse, almost wild form, and physical "energy." Both are in
constant motion, with a plethora of elements, the union and division of which
automatically produce strict and precise results. These results can be
precisely predefined. In fact almost all of them have been studied by precise
science, and humanity uses this knowledge in its own interests and needs,
sometimes to its own detriment. Mathematics is the ruler in this sphere.
Mathematics is in itself perfect accuracy. Mathematical rules are strict and
unchanging. In its application to dead nature, to the determination of causes
and effects, mathematics reveals and enlightens the strict uniformity in
going from cause to effect. In this worldly element laws are automatic.
