shown by many experiments that every object radiates forces which impress an image of itself upon surrounding objects. "If we lay a key upon a smooth metal plate for a short time, and then remove it, the image of the key may be evoked by heating the plate. And this may be done years after the contact." Whether conscious or not, the objects of the universe are thus continually recording their history in these marvelous pictures. A room becomes atmosphere(] and vitalized by the character of its occupants. The trouping of members, in the mansion, their daily life and employments, at length results in establishing definite currents of vital force from room to room around the mansion. It becomes, to an extent, like a living organism.
The laws of form, color and serial harmony become important elements in making a perfect dwelling. These laws must have a short consideration here.
BEAUTY OF THE FORM. The curves of the head, face and body seldom terminate abruptly, but gracefully blend with each other, like the organs at the surface of the brain. The number and perfect arrangement of these curves gives to the human form its wonderful beauty, so far surpassing that of all other physical objects that we cannot conceive of anything more beautiful. And our highest inspirations attribute the same form to beings in realms of existence more exalted than our own.
The Ellipse is the great curve upon which the brain is constructed. Each kind of a curve derives its properties from the fact that it has been produced by certain forces, acting with definite ratios and directions. A curve is an embodiment of forces.
