WHAT ARE SPIRITS?
Introduction | Definition | Origin | Physical Nature | Perispirit
Spirit, as it is referred to in our web's section on the scientific aspect of Spiritism, is defined as the intelligent principle of the universe (matter being the other major element). In this section here, however, we are referring to individual spirits, as defined in "The Spirits' Book", as "the intelligent beings of creation." These intelligent beings, then, are the individualization of that intelligent principle, and they populate the invisible realms of the universe.
