"By denying scientific principles, one may maintain any paradox." [Galileo]

Principles are as laws that govern energy and form and their activities and associations. This is not a comprehensive list. More material will be added from time to time.

"Know the first principles: There is good in all that is alive." [Cayce (2537-1)]
"Techniques there may be a million and then some, but principles are few. The man who grasps principles can successfully select his own methods. The man who tries methods, ignoring principles, is sure to have trouble.” [Warwick Shiller]

"Reality cannot be found except in One single source, because of the interconnection of all things with one another. ... It is a good thing to proceed in order and to establish propositions (principles). This is the way to gain ground and to progress with certainty. ... I hold that the mark of a genuine idea is that its possibility can be proved, either a priori by conceiving its cause or reason, or a posteriori when experience teaches us that it is a fact in nature." [Gottfried Leibniz, 1670]

Phineas Parkhurst Quimby
“I will try to give an illustration of my First Cause. Wisdom is outside of everything. Opinion is in wisdom, for wisdom fills all space. Therefore, it being all wise, everything comes within itself. Opinion being in belief cannot be wisdom, for it is liable to change. Now man is in one or the other of these two elements, wisdom or opinion. Principles are wisdom reduced to science or practice. Laws are not principles but are based on opinions that can change and they belong to man's reasoning. Principles do not reason at all but are like rays of light. All the principles of wisdom that are understood are like the points of a compass and these we call cardinal principles. Now man divides the globe into four quarters and the filling up of the points of compass is to fill up the space, so that man knows more than the four points; so with wisdom. The principles are so many that it is impossible to understand only as we grow wise.” [Phineas Parkhurst Quimby, The First Cause]

"I 'saw' that these 'principles' and 'characteristics', clearly observable in the process of creation, were set, invariable LAWS governing all of existence." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 1, page 13]
