It seems not unUkely that, with the ces

form of force that we are acquainted
with tn nature would ceaae. All matter,
of all kinds, might Itself disappear, being
resolved Into something else, and perhaps
returning, as Dr. I-e Bon has tug nested,

But . there ' Is another possible alter
native, much more fascinating to regard.
It might be that,' at the absolute sero

powerful set of forces would be brought
Into action, vli: the Intra-atomic forces.

the enormous energies that are hidden In
