A plasmic substance causes definite chemical and physical changes only when it is present in a certain condition of motion.
M. Roze believes, therefore, that the motion is a plasmic one, the protoplasm being the vital and animating part of the cell.
The effective stimulus in a plasmic substance is dependent on its own nature and the influence which it receives from without.
Moreover, the greatest potency of spiritual power is at the beginnings in the most plasmic conditions of matter.
And the chemical constituents of its plasmic inner body is but slightly different from that of the crystals.
1712, "form, shape" (earlier plasm), from Late Latin plasma, from Greek plasma "something molded or created," hence "image, figure; counterfeit, forgery; formed style, affectation," from plassein "to mold," originally "to spread thin," from PIE *plath-yein, from root *pele- (2) "flat, to spread" (see plane (n.1)). Sense of "liquid part of blood" is from 1845; that of "ionized gas" is 1928.
