“Every objective manifestation, whether it be the motion of a living limb, or the movement of some inorganic body, requires two conditions: will and force – plus matter, or that which makes the object so moved visible to our eye; and these three are all convertible forces, or the force-correlation of the scientists.
In their turn they are directed or rather overshadowed by the Divine intelligence which these men so studiously leave out of the account, but without which not even the crawling of the smallest earthworm could ever take place. The simplest as the most common of all natural phenomena – the rustling of the leaves which tremble under the gentle contact of the breeze – requires a constant exercise of these faculties.
Scientists may well call them cosmic laws, immutable and unchangeable. Behind these laws we must search for the intelligent cause, which one having created and set these laws in motion, has infused into them the essence of its own consciousness. Whether we call this the first cause, the universal will, or God, it must always bear intelligence.”
H. P. Blavatsky
