This original treatise by Ramsey divides the subject of phenomena into two heads - the metaphysical and the physical. With profound propriety it proceeds on the line that error always promotes evil and truth always promotes good, and hence that we are to try all things and cast away everything that fails to prove true. The two classes of phenomena are named matter-phenomena and life-phenomena. The chief factors of all phenomena are recognized to be the cosmic forces of gravity, heat and life. This should be considered a scientific work as opposed to anything occult in nature, though the line is blurred every now and then. Some of the contents under the metaphysical phenomena section include: Philosophy of Phenomena; Metaphysical Philosophy; Heat; Functional Phenomena; To the Unknown God you Ignorantly Worship; True and Spurious Gods; Trance Phenomena; Sense and Nonsense Intermixed: Suns, Planets and Satellites of the Universe; Chance versus Law; and more. Under the Physical Phenomena section: Nebulae; Air Pressure and Air Motion as a Motor; Air and Orbital Motions; Water Made to Run Uphill; Glacial Phenomena; Moons and their Motions; Ethnological Phenoemna; The Colored Man; and more. The postulate that dominates all is, that the forces inherent in matter rule the universe; that air, in motion, is the cause of the earth's axial and orbital motions; also the cause of Geological and Glacial phenomena. These involve a revolution of modern thought.
