Thought Waves and Their Process of Reproduction

“LIKE a stone thrown into the water, thought produces ripples and waves which spread out over the great ocean of thought. There is this difference, however: the waves on the water move only on a level plane in all directions, whereas thought waves move in all directions from a common center, just as do the rays from the sun.

Just as we here on earth are surrounded by a great sea of air, so are we surrounded by a great sea of Mind. Our thought waves move through this vast material ether, extending, however, in all directions, as I have explained, becoming somewhat lessened in intensity according to the distance traversed, because of the friction occasioned by the waves coming in contact with the great body of Mind surrounding us on all sides.

These thought waves have other qualities differing from the waves on the water. They have the property of reproducing themselves; in this respect they resemble sound waves rather than waves upon the water. Just as a note of the violin will cause the thin glass to vibrate and “sing,” so will a strong thought tend to awaken similar vibrations in minds attuned to receive it. Many of the “stray thoughts” which come to us are but reflections or answering vibrations to some strong thought sent out by another. But unless our minds are attuned to receive it, the thought will not likely affect us. If we are thinking high and great thoughts, our minds acquire a certain keynote corresponding to the character of the thoughts we have been thinking. And, this keynote once established, we will be apt to catch the vibrations of other minds keyed to the same thought. On the other hand, let us get into the habit of thinking thoughts of an opposite character, and we will soon be echoing the low order of thought emanating from the minds of the thousands thinking along the same lines.

We are largely what we have thought ourselves into being, the balance being rep- resented by the character of the suggestions and thought of others, which have reached us either directly by verbal suggestions or telepathically by means of such thought waves. Our general mental attitude, however, determines the character of the thought waves received from others as well as the thoughts emanating from ourselves. We receive only such thoughts as are in harmony with the general men- tal attitude held by ourselves; the thoughts not in harmony affecting us very little, as they awaken no response in us.”

Intuitive Genius


“Some scientists insist that thinking in feelings and mental images can be rationally manipulated. Einstein suggested ‘a certain connection’ between ‘the psychical entities which seem to serve as elements in thought’ and relevant logical concepts.’ Mathematician Stainislaw Ulam made the argument even more strongly. He experienced abstract mathematical notions in visual terms, so the idea of “an infinity of spheres or an infinity of sets’ became ‘a picture with such almost real objects, getting smaller, vanishing on some horizon.’ Such thinking is ‘not in terms of words or syllogisms or signs’ but in terms of some ‘visual algorithm’ having a ‘sort of meta- or super-logic with its own rules.’ For William Lipscomb, a Nobel Laureate in chemistry and, not incidentally, a fine musician, this kind of thinking is synthetic and aesthetic experience.  Tn his research into the chemistry of boron he found himself thinking not only inductively and deductively but also intuitively. ‘’I felt a focusing of intellect and emotions which was surely an aesthetic response,’ he wrote. ‘It was followed by a flood of predictions coming from my mind as if I were a bystander watching it happen. Only later was I able to begin to formulate a systematic theory of structure, bonding and reactions for these unusual molecules…. Was it science? Our later tests showed it was. But the processes that I used and the responses that i felt were more like those of an artist.’ Gut feelings, emotions, and imaginative images do make sense in science, but, like the meaning of a dance or a musical theme, that sense is felt rather than defined.”

“‘I don’t understand said Jacques. ‘If this is Earth here, this is Saturn, and here are the rings of Jupiter and this is the body you’ve discovered, the one that regulates the movements of people, then what are these lines here? Are these the souls of the dead going up to Heaven?’

‘Those are the rays of influence. They emanate from space, far beyond anything we can see. These are what control you.’


‘Of course. Like rays of light, or invisible waves of sound. The universe is bombarded with them. You can’t hear them. You can’t see them.'”

On The Subject of Organized Matter

“What is seen, of any object – a tree, an animal, a stone, a man – is only a part of that tree, animal, stone or man. There is a force which, for a time, binds such objects together in the form you see them. [I am interested in investigating whether or not this ‘force’ Prentice (the author of this passage) speaks of are in fact, anyons. Anyons are subatomic particles that hold memory. ] That force is always acting upon them, to a greater or lesser degree. It builds up the flower to its fullest maturity. Its cessation to act on the flower or tree causes what we call ‘decay.’ It is constantly changing the shape of all forms of what we call ‘organized matter.’ An animal, a plant, a human being are not in physical shape this month or this year what they will be next month or next year.
This ever-acting, ever-varying force, which lies behind and, in a sense, creates all forms of matter – we call, ‘spirit.’
To see, reason and judge of life and things in the knowledge of this force makes what is termed the ‘spiritual mind.’
We have, through knowledge, the wonderful power of using or directing this force, when we recognize it and know that it exists, so as to bring us health, happiness and eternal peace of mind. Composed as we are of this force, we are ever attracting more of it to us and making it a part of our being.
With more of this force must come more and more knowledge. At first in our physical existences, we allow it to work blindly. Then we are in the ignorance of that condition known as the material mind. But as mind, through its growth or increase of this power, becomes more and more awakened, it asks, ‘Why comes so much of pain, grief and disappointment in the physical life?’ ‘Why do we seem born to suffer and decay?’
That question is the first awakening cry of the spiritual mind – and an earnest question or demand for knowledge must, in time, be answered.
The material mind is part of yourself, which has been appropriated be the body and educated by the body. It is as if you taught a child that the wheels of a steamboat made the boat move and said nothing of the steam, which gives the real power. Bred in such ignorance, the child, should the wheels stop moving, would look no farther for the cause of their stoppage than to try to find where to repair them, very much as now so many depend entirely on repair of the physical body to ensure it healthy, vigorous movement, never dreaming that the imperfection lies in the real motive power – the mind.” –Thoughts Are Things by Prentice Mulford. 1908.
I believe, creation, in all senses of the word, is simply the act of continuous organization and reorganization of matter, anyons (memory)(force) in space. Through creation, we allow ourselves to see who we are over and over again so that we may continue to change, shift and grow, forever.
