'''Malicious animal magnetism''' works through the subconscious, the [[etheric body]]. It is malice aforethought—conscious, willful and directed evil such as the many forms of hatred and jealousy that are the foundations of most criminal acts.
'''Ignorant animal magnetism''' works through the [[mental body]] and manifests as many forms of density—slowness of mind and action, clogging and sluggishness in the functioning of the physical body, untidiness and dust in one’s surroundings, a tendency to have accidents and, in general, being out of step with life. Ignorant animal magnetism is the [[Antichrist]]—the mass effluvia of human creation that opposes the expansion of the Christ light throughout the world. Problems connected with mechanical failures and electrical mishaps can often be traced to this form of animal magnetism.
