Happiness and misery are independent of life. 
They are the effect of our opinions.

The Birth & Order of Intelligence in Man

Life is the substance. Happiness and misery are independent of life. They are the effect of our opinions. Our belief is the earthly (or natural) man. Science (or wisdom) is the spiritual man or woman. Adam was the being of opinions - man or woman. Science is the scientific man.

The natural man or woman of earth has enslaved the scientific man to the earth and called her “woman;” has himself received the seed, so that the fruits of the earth are of man. So with intelligence. The natural man (or opinion) is the woman, and the scientific man is the one that teaches the natural intellect.

Now the child is of the earth, earthly; but this mother is not its scientific parent. The father of scientific intellect is its father; for it teaches what it cannot receive from its mother, earth (or opinions).

This was the case with Adam. He was of the earth, like all other brutes, but when the science came, he called it “woman,” because it came out of man. Adam (or opinions) brought forth science, and as opinions rule, they put science down and called it “woman.” So the natural man is of the woman, and the spiritual (or scientific) man is woman (or the scientific man).
