The Christian Science Platform Group:


The Christian Science Platform is a structure of 32 statements. This large platform structure gives us two platform statements for each of the 16 elements of the foursquare pedagogical structure, providing two lines of statements for each row of the pedagogical structure.

Here again, we have two additional platforms structures associated with the main platform. One of the additional structures had been recognized quite early, which is the 16-element structure that is contained in the Glossary definition for the term, MORTAL MIND. The MORTAL-MIND structure stands in contrast with the scientific recognition represented in the Christian-Science-Platform structure with. In this association with Christian Science Platform elements, the MORTAL-MIND elements are being invalidated and overturned.
