Correspondences is the name applied to one of the principal doctrines which Swedenborg (q.v.) believed himself specially commissioned to promulgate. He taught that there are certain links of harmony and correspondence between the seen and the unseen worlds, so that every object ought to suggest to the mind of man its own appropriate divine truth. The fundamental idea of his system was that matter and spirit are associated together and connected by an eternal law, and all analogies were converted in his mind into predetermined correspondences.
