Excerpt from The Conception of Immortality

I may as well begin this discussion by pointing out where, to my mind, lies the most central problem concerning man's immorality. In the real world in which our common-sense metaphysic believes, some things are obviously transient, and others, as, for instance, matter and the laws of nature, are more enduring, and perhaps (so common sense would nowadays tell us), are absolutely permanent. But permanence is of two sorts. A type may be permanent, - a law, a relationship. Thus the Binomial Theorem remains always true; and water continues to run down hill just as it did during the earliest geological periods.
