Universal Matter, the universal mater or mother principle of all things, has two chief stresses: mass inertia, or “body” and sentience, or “feeling awareness”. It knows itself as a mass-inertic feeling substance.

The polarisation within the Absolute by the creation of universal matter as a function of the Absolute is the first phase, the first appearance, of the relational tension necessary for the evolution of higher life forms and the movement towards reflexively self-conscious beings.
