Kune rima kusavapo kwechiedza here, kana chimwe chinhu chakazviparadzanisa choga uye icho chinotora nzvimbo yechiedza. Kana ivo vakasiyana uye vakaparadzaniswa, rima chii uye chii chiedza?

Darkness is not “the absence of light.” Light is not darkness. Darkness is something in itself, not light. Darkness may for a while take the place of light and obscure light, but light will dispel darkness. Light will eventually overcome darkness by the raising of and causing darkness to become light. The light and darkness which we perceive through the senses are not light and darkness in themselves, though that which we perceive as light and dark have their origin in the true light and in darkness. As a thing, darkness is homogeneous substance, which is the root, basis or background of all manifestation as matter. In its original state, it is quiet and is the same throughout itself. It is unconscious, unintelligent and undisturbed. Light is the power which comes from the intelligences who have passed through the evolutions and are above or beyond manifestation. When intelligences direct their light power on unconditioned and homogeneous substance, which is darkness, that portion of substance or darkness, and on which light is directed, springs into activity. With the beginning of activity, the substance which was one becomes dual. In action darkness or substance is no longer substance, but is dual. This duality of substance or darkness is known as spirit-matter. Spirit and matter are the two opposites of the one thing, which is substance in origin, but spirit-matter in action. The units into which substance is thus divided as spirit-matter, as well as the manifesting spirit-matter as a whole, have impressed upon them and it the origin of their root parent and also the cause of their action or manifestation. Substance is the root and parent of every indivisible unit particle of the manifesting mass as well as of the mass as a whole. Light is the cause of the manifestation and of the action in each unit as well as of the manifesting mass as a whole. So that in each indivisible unit, as well as throughout the manifesting mass as a whole is represented: the root parent as substance and the acting power as light. In each unit called spirit-matter there is potentially the parent, substance, and the power, light. Substance is represented by that portion of the indivisible unit which is called matter, and light is represented by the other side or portion of the same indivisible unit called spirit. All universes or manifestations are called out of the unfathomed substance or darkness into manifestation by the light power of intelligences, and this light keeps the spirit-matter thus called into action continuously in action throughout its period of manifestation. During the period of the manifestation the light which is present in manifestation with darkness is the cause of that which we call light. The matter which is manifesting is the cause of what we call darkness. Light and darkness seem ever in conflict and seem to give place to each other throughout manifestation. Day and night, waking and sleeping, life and death, are the opposites or reverse sides of the same thing. These opposites act alternately in short or long periods, until darkness is turned into light. Each seems to the other as the undesirable though each is to the other a necessity. Man has in him darkness and the light power. To man the senses are his darkness and his mind is his light. But this is not usually so considered. To the senses the mind seems as darkness. To the mind the senses are darkness. That which to the senses seems to come from the sun, we call sunlight. To the mind the senses and that which they call light is as darkness when it, the mind, is illuminated by the light power of its parent intelligence. The sunlight and the intelligent perception of it may come to us even while the mind is immersed in and in conflict with the darkness; then we shall see the sunlight as a reflection or symbol of the real light. Darkness gives place to and is changed into permanent light as it is overcome by perceptions and by actions of the mind. When our minds have won in the conflict with darkness we shall perceive the true light which shines in the darkness even though darkness now knows it not.

Chii chinonzi radium uye sei zvingaita kuti irambe ichirasira nguva dzose nesimba guru pasina chero kuonekwa kusvibiswa nekurasikirwa kwesimba uye muviri wayo, uye chii chinokonzera radioactivity yayo?

Izvo zvinofungidzirwa kuti munyori wemubvunzo anoziva kujairana nesainzi nezve nezve ichangobva kuwanikwa yeradium, sekudzwa kwayakaita kubva pitchblende, kuwanikwa kwayo naMadame Curie, simba rayo remwenje, mhedzisiro yechiitiko chayo paneimwe miviri, kushomeka uye kunetseka kunopinda mukugadzirwa kwayo.

Radium inhengo yemuviri yezvinhu kuburikidza neicho simba uye chinhu chakanakira kupfuura chemuviri chinoratidzwa kune pfungwa. Radium inyaya yemunhu mukuwonana neimwe nyaya uye mauto anowanzofungidzirwa nezvekufungidzira. Ether nemauto aya inzvimbo dzezvinhu zvakapusa pane zvemuviri uye ivo vanoshanda kana kuburikidza neicho chinonzi chinhu chemuviri, ingave yemuviri nyaya yedhaimani kana mamorekuru e hydrogen. Dai zvainge zvisiri zvekufungidzira kana zvekunyepedzera kuita zvinhu kuburikidza nechimiro chepanyama kungadai kusine shanduko kana kuora kwezvinhu zvepanyama. Kuita kwehunyanzvi kuburikidza nechinhu chakakomba kunokonzera kusanganisa kwe “makemikari” uye shanduko yenyaya mukushandiswa kwese uye sekutarisirwa nemachemicals.

Radium inyama yemukati inoitwa zvakananga pairi kana kuburikidza neyeredzi yechinhu chisiri chechitatu chinhu uye pasina kushandurwa nemabatiro eichi chinhu cheAralral. Zvimwezve zvinhu zvepanyama zvinoitwa ne astral jambo, asi zvakaderera pane radium. Kazhinji, mhedzisiro yechiitiko chevazivi pane zvimwe zvinhu zvemuviri haisi kutaridzika nekuti nyaya yemuviri haigone kupa kubatana nekupokana nenyaya yeastral inopihwa neRadium, uye imwe nyaya yakawanda haisiyo yakanangana nekutarisana nenyaya yeastral sezvazviri. radium. Infinitesimal uye isingapindike zvimedu zve radium zviripo mune zvese nyaya. Asi parizvino pitchblende inoratidzika kunge ndiyo sosi kubva kwavanogona kuunganidzwa muhukuru hukuru, kunyange zvidiki. Kana zvimedu zvinonzi radium zvakasunganidzwa kuita svumbunzo imwechete, chinhu chemuastral chinoshanda zvakananga pairi uye kuburikidza nacho mumhando uye simba rinoonekwa kune manzwi.

Iyo radio-chiitiko che radium haina, sezviri kufanira ikozvino, nekuda kwekugadzira kwayo kana kurasa kubva pachayo zvimedu zvemuviri wayo. Chinhu chenyama chakaumbwa nacho chakasanganiswa haipe radio-chiitiko kana rimwe simba rinozviratidza naro. Radium harisi simba, asi svikiro chesimba. (Chinhu chakapetana kaviri uye chiripo pamapuraneti akasiyana. Panduru imwe neimwe chinhu kana chichiita uye chiine simba kana chashanda. Saka nyaya yemuviri inyaya inongoshanda uye simba rinoshanda. Chinhu chemuEastral chiitiko chezviitiko zvezviwi uye kumanikidza pane astral ndege ino shanda chinhu chemuartral.) Radium ndiwo muviri unoshandiswa nawo pazvinhu zveastral. Radium inyaya yepanyika yemuviri; nhepfenyuro-chiitiko inyaya yechaserese kubva pasireal world inova inoonekwa nenzira yeiyo radium. Nyika yeredral yakatenderera uye kuburikidza neyepanyama pasirese, uye, sezvo nyaya yavo yakajeka, iri mukati uye kuburikidza nekurema kwezvinhu, seSainzi inotaura kuti ether iri mukati uye kuburikidza necrowbar, kana sezvazvinozivikanwa kuti magetsi anoita mukati uye kuburikidza nemvura. Kunge kenduru inopa kujeka, radium inoburitsa mwenje kana simba. Asi kusiyana nekenduru, haina kupiswa kunze mukupa iwo mwenje. Kunge jenareta kana waya yemagetsi inoita kunge inoburitsa kupisa kana mwenje kana magetsi, radium inoita kunge inoburitsa kana kurasa simba; uye saka zvinoita, pamwe. Asi iwo mwenje kana rimwe simba rinoita seriri kugadzirwa harina kupihwa waya. Izvo zvinozivikanwa kuti simba remagetsi haribvi mune dynamo kana waya yemagetsi. Zvinozivikanwa zvakare kuti iwo magetsi iwo unoratidzira sekupisa kana mwenje kana simba inotungamirwa padivi neaya waya. Nenzira imwecheteyo, iwo mhando kana simba iro rinozivikanwa seredhiyo-chiitiko rinoratidzira kuburikidza neRadium kubva kunobva zvino iko kusingazivikanwe nesainzi. Asi iro rinobva mukurumbira harisi radium chero rinobva kupi remagetsi iri dynamo kana waya. Izvo zvimiro zvemuviri wayo zvinokandirwa kunze zvopiswa kunze kana kusevenzesa zvishoma pane zvimedu zvedynamo kana waya yemagetsi nekuita kwesimba remagetsi. Iko kunobva kune icho chinoratidzwa kuburikidza ne radium zvakafanana neiyo sosi yekuratidzwa kwemagetsi. Dzese dzinouya dzichibva kumwechete kwadzo. Musiyano uripo pakati pekuratidzwa kwemagetsi senge kupisa, mwenje kana simba uye izvo zvinoratidzwa kuburikidza nemuviri radium zviri pakati pekuratidzira kwete mumagetsi kana redhiyo-chiitiko. Izvo zvimiti izvo zvakaverengedzwa dynamo, jenareta kana waya, hazvisi zvemhando imwechete ne izvo zvimedu izvo radium yakagadzirwa. Chinhu cheAralral uye mauto anoita mukati menhau yeredral anoita zvakananga pane radium pasina chimwe chinhu kana kufananidzira. Iyo yazvino inotamba kuburikidza negetsi yemagetsi inooneswa nezvimwe zvinhu, zvakaita semabhatiri, magneti, jenareta, dynamos, mupfu uye mafuta. Hapana chimwe chezvinhu izvi chinodikanwa neRadium nekuti icho chakanangana nacho uye choga chinobvumira chinhu chemuastral kuratidza kuburikidza ne icho kana nezve icho, iyo radium.

Izvo zvinozivikanwa kuti magetsi emagetsi haapinde waya, asi kutenderedza waya. Izvo zvakare zvichawanikwa kuti nenzira imwecheteyo nhepfenyuro-basa harisi mu radium, asi kutenderera kana nezve radium. Vagadziri vemagetsi vaedza uye vachiri kuyedza kugadzirisa dzimwe nzira neiyo magetsi emagetsi anogona kuitwa kuratidza uye kutungamirirwa pasina kushandisa muputi kana mafuta kana galvanic chiito. Radium inoratidza uye inoratidza kuti izvi zvingaitwa sei.
