Excerpt from A Modern Zoroastrian
From some of the criticisms on the First Edition of this work I fear that the distinction I endeavoured to draw between the use of the term polarity in the inorganic and in the spiritual worlds has not been made suficiently clear. I stated in... the Introduction That while the principle of polarity pervades both worlds, I am far from assuming that the laws under which it acts are identical; and that virtue and vice, pain and pleasure, are products of the same mathematical laws as regulate the attractions and repulsions of molecules and atoms. But this warning has been apparently overlooked by some readers who have assumed that instead of analogy I meant identity, and that it was a mistake to use the same word polarity for phenomena so essentially distinct as those of the material and the spiritual worlds.
