A spiritual entity is without weight in a purely physical sense. It knows no law of physical gravitation. It finds the spiritual materials of our atmosphere, and the higher atmospheres and space, sufficient to uphold it, and to maintain it in comfort, with all the conveniences of a superior world life.

In order to fully understand spirit-life and the spiritual universe, it is necessary for us to fully grasp the difference between invisible spiritual material and the coarser physical material.

All material, or matter, is fundamentally invisible. We can no more see a single atom of physical material than we can see an atom of spiritual material. In fact, it is from the invisible materials of the invisible universe that all visible—and therefore physical material things—are made. And the only difference between the invisible physical materials and the invisible spiritual materials, of which the two different worlds are composed, is a difference in the fineness of the particles of material selected for the construction of these two different worlds.

The physical worlds are constructed from the coarser particles of the invisible materials of space, and the spiritual universe is built out of the finer, or the refined particles of the invisible materials obtained from the same source.
