Tesla, Occult Ether Science - Page 74-75
On Apr. 15,1932 13, Tesla said Einstein's theory regarding changing matter into force, and force into matter, was "absurd". He compared
this to the difference between body and mind, saying force is a "...function of matter", and that, just as a mind could not exist without a body, "...without matter, there can be no force."

Schauberger, Page 50, The Energy Evolution
In line with this view, energy and its movement
are unquestionably the primary cause,
the prerequisite for physical manifestation.
Everything we see around us, the trees, the
flowers, all are the outside casing of the formative
energy path.

Christ, Book of Thomas
6:1 Jesus said: If the flesh has come into existence because of the spirit, it is a marvel; but if the spirit has come into existence because of the body, it is a marvel of marvels (impossible). But I marvel at how this great wealth (the spirit) has made its home in this poverty (the body).
