Somehow, in the wee hours of the morning perhaps, Swedenborg also found the time and the intellectual will to discover some things that would not be verified for over a century. One of the tragic aspects of Swedenborg’s scientific career is that he was often so far ahead of his contemporaries that they took little note of him or his work. His On the Brain (De Cerebro) would not be discovered and published until the late nineteenth century. Swedenborg arrived in Holland toward the end of 1743.

For the next 10 years, Swedenborg labored on what he believed would be his greatest contribution to science. By the spring of 1733, he was ready to travel to Germany and Holland to publish his masterwork. THE SCIENTIFIC MASTERPIECE Swedenborg’s Philosophical and Mineralogical Works (Opera Philosophica et Mineralia) is a massive three-volume work. The first volume was First Principles of Natural Things (Principia Rerum Naturalium). Here, we find Swedenborg’s scientific beliefs, at the mature age of 45: Every one, from the light of reason, may see that nature, conforming to principles of geometry, is ever pursuing a most simple course, a course peculiar to herself, and truly mechanical.
