In the mineral kingdom, the struggle for life, and the struggle of life, begin, and guided by an intelligence that is mathematically accurate in all its efforts, this life develops, and spreads, and passes through each of the other kingdoms of nature, and on through the more rarefied kingdoms which are invisible to man.

While life originates in the mineral kingdom, and develops and spreads through all the other kingdoms, and creates and is the beginning of these kingdoms, yet there is left behind in each of these kingdoms an individual life element which also evolves, and develops, and attains through refinement and vibratory action an immortality that carries the most beautiful and highly developed species of each of these kingdoms into the invisible and spiritual world.

The flowers are not lost to the spiritual kingdoms, nor the plants, nor the minerals, nor even such of the animals as develop and attain a vibratory action that is sufficiently refining and perfecting to carry them over into the invisible and spiritual worlds.

While each individual life, and particular species of life, represented in the coarser materials of nature, can attain to a refinement and immortality that will carry them over into the spiritual world, yet the particular life element in which nature is most interested, and upon which she spends most of her time, is that life element that passes through all the different species and kingdoms of life, and attains to immortality as the final product of all of these combined or united in one. I refer to that life which has passed through from the mineral to man, and on into the invisible or spiritual world.
