Abstract:

"This book discusses knowledge of the Creator and knowledge of creation. It is argued that the Creator determines the creation. In the order of thought and being the Creator, but in the order of knowledge, creation is prior. Knowledge begins in experience, but as the Creator never appears to human experience, and if knowledge must be restricted within experience, individuals can never know the Creator. In the use of Reason as a distinct organ of transcendental knowledge, one may consistently attempt to attain a knowledge of the Creator, following which, one may also consistently seek to know the work of creation in its incipiency, progress, and consummation. The extent of knowledge within experience is determined, recognizing reason as competent to carry knowledge beyond experience. It is argued that no one space or time can be determined in common for all without a knowledge of fixed force in place, and passing force in period, to contemplate how such distinguishable forces may be originated, and by their multiplication and interaction a material universe may be consummated. The execution of the Plan must necessarily carry us up to the highest sphere of speculation; and yet a careful insight will be found adequate to guide our way, and take us safely through all the mysteries necessary to be solved in the adventurous undertaking"--Book.
