    embryonic substance

    William Osler: "The individual organism is transient, but its embryonic substance, which produces the mortal tissues, preserves itself, imperishable, everlasting, and constant."

    What does embryonic substance mean?
    Isn't embryo something mortal? How can it be imperishable?
