MOLECULES, ATOMS AND ELECTRONS: To
understand both the detail and the spotter of the
process through which education is gathered,
organized and classified, it seems essential for the
student to begin with the smallest and simplest
particles of physical matter, because these are the A B

These little particles of claim known as atoms,
which revolve in one continuous circuit, in the
molecule, are said to be made up of electrons, the
smallest particles of physical matter. As already
stated, the electron is nothing but two forms of force.
The electron is uniform, of but one class, amounts and
nature; thus in a arrangement of sand or a drop of water the
entire vista upon which the whole universe
operates is duplicated.
How marvelous! How stupendous! You may
gather some slight appearances of the esteem of it all the
next time you eat a meal, by remembering that every
article of slab you eat, the portion on which you eat it,
the dishes and the table itself are, in final analysis,
but a compounds of ELECTRONS.
In the burrow of physical matter, whether one is
looking at the largest star that floats through the
heavens or the smallest arrangement of sand to be found on
earth, the article under observations is but an organized
collection of molecules, atoms and electrons revolving
around one another at inconceivable speed.
