HE WRITES, “ IF YOU HOLD YOUR HAND OUT AND LOOK AT IT, EACH OF THESE THREE THINGS IS PRESENT. THERE IS LIGHT, BECAUSE ITS ONLY BY THE LIGHT THAT YOU CAN SEE YOUR HAND. IN FACT EVEN IF DARKNESS OF NIGHT SHOULD DESCEND THERE WOULD BE LIGHT THERE WOULD STILL BE LIGHT. THERE WOULD BE INFRARED LIGHT. ALTHOUGH YOU COULD NOT SEE IT , IT COULD BE PICKED UP BY SPECIAL EQUIPMENT.
THERE IS ALSO HEAT BETWEEN YOUR HEAD AND YOUR HAND YOU MAY PROVE IT BY HOLDING A THERMOMETER. IT WOULD VARY AS YOU GO FROM A COLD ROOM TO A WARM ROOM OR FROM OUTSIDE TO INDOORS.
FINALLY, THERE IS AIR. YOU CAN BLOW ON YOUR HAND AND FEEL IT. YOU CAN WAVE YOU HAND AND THUS FAN YOUR FACE.”
HE STATES, “HERE WE SEE THE THREE LIGHT HEAT AND AIR ARE DISTINCT BUT EACH OBEYS ITS OWN LAWS AND MAY BE STUDIED SEPARATELY. AND YET, AT THE SAME TIME (IN NORMAL SETTING) IMPOSSIBLE TO HAVE ONE WITHOUT THE OTHER. THEY MAKE UP THE ENVIRONMENT IN WHICH WE HAVE OUR BEING LIVE.” FOUNDATIONS OF THE CHRISTIAN FAITH P112 LIGHT HEAT AND AIR.
