The universal fluid is the basic substance of all material and spiritual Universe, the elementary primitive substance. It is highly influenced by thought (which is a form of energy) and is able to modify itself, taking on particular shapes and properties.
By work of Divine Thought the universal fluid originated nebulas, stellar systems, planets, and stars. It is within this fluidic substance the Creator executes the existential plan.
The universal fluid fills the existing space between the worlds. Thought waves travel through it, in the same way that sound waves are projected in the atmospheric layer.
The universal fluid is found in a modified form around the planets. The presence of life in the orb imposes a special characteristic to it, for the fluid is altered by the mental activity of the planet’s inhabitants. Thus, the universal fluid that surrounds the most primitive worlds is dark and heavy. In the civilized worlds the spiritual atmosphere is lighter and more luminous.
For better understanding, it can be said that this elementary principle has two distinct states: state of imponderability or ethereal (normal primitive state), and state of ponderability or materialization. The phenomena of the invisible world belong to the first state and the phenomena of the visible world belong to the second. Logically, between those two points, there are innumerable intermediate forms of transformation of the fluid i
nto tangible substance.
Study of this important subject will enable us to understand the origin of many human illnesses and the fundamentals of fluid-therapy, which is widely used in Spiritist Centres in the prophylaxis and treatment of physical and spiritual diseases.
“In the ethereal state, the universal fluid is not uniform; without ceasing being ethereal, it undergoes modifications so variable in origin and perhaps more numerous than those it undergoes in the state of tangible matter.
Such modifications bring forth distinct fluids, albeit originating from the same principle they are endowed with special properties, thus giving rise to the phenomena inherent to the in visible world.
Since everything is relative, these fluids are perceived by the Spirits —fluidic beings themselves — as matter, the same way the incarnate creatures perceive tangible objects.
Those fluids are, for the Spirits, what the substances of the terrestrial world are for us: the Spirits elaborate and combine them in order to produce determined effects, the same way Man does with his materials, although utilizing different processes.”
