Leibniz - Form, Function and the Word
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Coudert – Leibniz
...in truth there is only one world that God continually creates, and this world is animated everywhere and extends everywhere.
But one can think of it in terms of two kingdoms, one of spirits, which God governs as a prince, as a person governs other people, and one of bodies, which he governs like an architect or mechanic, the way a skillful master takes cares of his machines.
These kingdoms penetrate each other and respond to each in the most profound sense, without one worrying about the laws of the other, but each one carrying out what is in the ideal world of the divine word.
