The Incredible Power Of Thought

Road To The Riches

Thoughts are the windows of future. It’s the obvious reason for every success. A man is, but the product of his thoughts – what he thinks, he becomes.
Mahatma Gandhi

Our thoughts are very powerful and science is doing exciting experiments with the power of thought.

In July 2007 the Silicon Valley company Nerosky launched a device that lets you control a computer game just by using your thoughts.

Since the power of thought is a very potent form of energy that penetrates all time and space we need to be aware of what we think.

Fortunate for the human race we are able to control our thoughts. We can use our mind and practice the process of thinking. We can make ourselves think thoughts of what we want to be or have.

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty”

    Yes! But when, how and where did my first thought materialize?
    In my beginning, I was nothing but the fusion of a sperm and an egg.
    This cell started dividing; one cell became two, four, eight and so on.
    Next, cells started to differentiate – into tissue; bone, muscle, nerve and so on.
    These tissues then became organized into organs, then organ systems; until I was a functioning human being! I had no idea (thought) as to who or what I was; and where, in which world I was.
    How and when did I become capable of “thought”?
    My opinion is that somewhere in the process, a biochemical was produced in the cell nucleus. This biochemical separated from the nucleus through the nuclear membrane, then through the cell membrane itself; into the surrounding amniotic fluid. This biochemical was changed; and it returned to the cell. Its changed biochemistry reacted with the contents between the cellular and nuclear membranes of the cell.
    Okay, two things.
    1. The contents of the cell nucleus is not affected by this exploratory process. the two membranes are only semi permeable. The DNA was left intact.
    2. The cell membranes have another model in nature – the Heaviside layer which permits the passage of TV signals; but not to short wave radio signals. There may be other models; which just shows the inadequacy of my knowledge.

    Winston Churchill’s was the man who wanted his statue kept heated so birds would not poop on him so I don’t take what he says too seriously. Now, whom am I to judge the birds? They have a better grasp of man’s evil ways than man himself and express their contempt of them rather adequately. Why else would men build statues of vile ugly men to idolize if not from a burning desire of harbouring feelings of grandiosity of one self?

    I was discussing with my students population growth and its impact on earth’s carrying capacity the other day, and the subject of cryonics came up. Good grief, could this world handle reincarnations of all the brutish crackpots with their oversized egos and the money to make it possible? I’m so glad I have no desire to live forever. One lifetime among these god forsaken humans is enough for me. And I’m quite happy controlling my thought process, thank you.

    “how and where did my first thought materialize?

    This is a very complex subject. Years back when I was studying purpose of life issues on my own this was one of the question I ran into. How does thought come into the transition from physico-chemical existence of sperms and eggs, to biological life. My conclusion then was there must be some input of divine creative energy. After reading more about genetics my suspicion is that the message or code is in the chromosomes in the chemicals (sperms/egg) from our parents or mating partners.
    Rarely do you hear religious people dealing with these subjects.

    Albert, it is credible that a pathway, or process that enables human thought, is embedded in our DNA. Please do not ask me how it got there. It is a WIP.
    I can visualize a biochemical being dispatched from a chromosome in the nucleolus of the zygote. It gets through the semi permeable nuclear membrane into the cell contents.
    More biochemistry.
    A resultant biochemical is allowed through the semi permeable cell membrane; and into the surrounding environment – of the womb – amniotic fluid.
    http://study.com/academy/lesson/what-is-amniotic-fluid-levels-function-composition.html
    I think of this process as a two-way messaging system. A “messenger” is allowed through the gates; and he is changed, by the environment, into a biochemical that now cannot get back through the semi permeable membrane. His failure to return tells the cytoplasm and maybe the nucleus, things that they need to know before proceeding further.
    Here is where I believe, my ability to formulate a thought, arose.
    I would be very interested in what your thoughts are; because you appear to be an open minded correspondent.

  • Albert  On March 25, 2017 at 3:56 pm

    I would be very interested in what your thoughts are”

    Have check my old notes on the subject (from guys like Francis Collins, Hawkins, Paul Davis and the Catholic biologist) no clear answer . Discussion on the issue has become very complex. One literally has to have a science degree to follow some of the discussion.
    What seem logical is that the ingredients making up the thought process has to come from the genes of both parents. The secret is in the DNA. Once the egg is fertilized the die is cast. External environment plays a role in fetal brain development. For instance, scientists know that a stressful environment affects the size of the brain. There is also continuous hormonal and other communication between the mother and the fetus in the womb, but these are after the fact.
    Post fertilization the fetus has lost all physical contact with male. If the thought process comes from both parents then in part it has to come from the male sperm.
    Throwing a monkey wrench in that idea. What happens in cloning where the reproduction process goes on without male input. How much do we humans really know.

    Every time that I try to follow up these ideas, I come to a gap that I cannot leap across; but as I look to the other side, I see a shimmer that is so tempting!
    Long ago and far away, the “missing link” energized the search that would settle once and for all the argument for evolution; as against creation.
    There even was “The Piltdown Man”; facts and fakes are not a 21st. Century invention.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Missing_Link
    The Jesuit priests of my turbulent days taught that this was what Faith was all about. I admire that Order for their reconciling science with religion. I remember us questioning Fr. Feeney on the scientific law “Matter can neither be created nor destroyed”. How did that square with “Creation” as a religious tenet? He was quick to point out the context; “In any chemical change …. ”
    I am convinced.
    That does not preclude as scientific search for the origin of human thought.

  • walter  On March 26, 2017 at 10:08 am

    Since nothing is created or destroyed, why should “thought” be exempted? Is there a finite number of souls, and the information transferred, fully or in part?

    • Albert  On March 26, 2017 at 5:53 pm

      scientific search for the origin of human thought”.

      In a search for the source of thought science seem to have some limitations. It could provide answers in processes that could be observed, or controlled through instruments. It is not very helpful in answering some questions dealing with human existence . It could not tell us how the universe came about, our purpose or how we are suppose to act with each other. Since thought is not a material observable matter, but is about human thinking and ideas, science seem here to be of limited help in providing answers.

    We must keep in mind that our science and technology, space exploration et al are only in its infancy. It is to our species’ credit that we have come this far in such a short time. There may possibly be extraterrestrial civilisations that are millions of years more advanced than us.

    Were it not for the mega stumbling block mounted by religion in stymying our innate curiosity, think of how much farther we might have advanced by now.

    Insofar as unravelling the mystery of thought, we must first look at the big picture (BP): the origin of the universe following the Big Bang, the Solar System and life itself on Earth.

    The age of the universe is estimated to be around 14 billion years and the SS about 4.6 billion. Life as we know it has not always been in the complex, biologic forms we see all around us today. It all began nearly 3.7 billion years ago in the primordial sea after the hot early Earth had cooled. It is believed that lighting might have been the spark to trigger the start of life.

    Life remained in single-cellular forms for more than a billion years before it learned how to make crude copies of itself (replication) and then gradually evolving over the aeons into complex forms.

    That life evolved is a fact, not fiction, the evidence is all around us, overwhelmingly. That life appeared here via the creationist route is egregiously false. Creationists would have you believe that the Earth is a mere 6000 years old. One would have to be prodigiously stupid to look at the natural world and conclude that it has existed for only a few thousand years.

    Humans may never be able to fully understand how it all began. We are like detectives arriving at a crime scene after the fact, with only clues with which to work. Religion certainly does not have the secret code, although they’d beg to differ. Unfortunately, it has succeeded in dummying the majority of the world’s denizens into believing bull…., which is a travesty of epic proportions.

    The origin of thought (consciousness) would fall under the umbrella of the BP and thus, it might be wise not to drive yourself crazy trying to solve what is ostensibly insoluble.

    I’m certain of one thing, that this is all there is. There is no evidence, anywhere, to the contrary or of an afterlife or a heaven or a hell. That is rank bull…. being fed to us by the bare-faced purveyors and fabricators of the Big Lie.

    Science does not have some limitations. It is we, human beings, who allow our own limitations to keep ourselves ‘in the box’. I will give an example.
    I had reason to look into the causes and workings of AFib. I found out that the human heart beats in response to pulses of electricity. I vaguely remembered that the electric eel produced its electricity from specialized cells. My mind visualized something like a car battery; and I was looking for some specialized cells. Nothing like that; the electricity is produced, almost magically in the heart muscle itself. Impossible, my mind seemed to insist. I followed it up and found that the electrical stimulus originates from the relative concentrations of calcium and potassium in the blood. The car battery produces electricity in a similar fashion.
    “The more we know, the more we must be conscious that we do not know”. Another Jesuit, Fr. Hopkinson, demonstrated this. I know that my present knowledge of AFib is incomplete; but this is due entirely to me and my limitations – self imposed or otherwise.
    But back to the topic. I am tending to think that my thought-process got started during my first interactions with my environment; that microscopic cell’s awareness – consciousness – of its fluid environment, nurturing and facilitating its growth and development; into a baby-me.
    Is this this reason why I used to find such inner peace, sitting up against the trunk of a large shade tree, surrounded by emerald green cane fields. drifting and dreaming; in the middle of the day?

    You might have a point here. The fetal structure for thought might have been in place awaiting an external stimulus from the environment to get it going.

  • demerwater  On March 28, 2017 at 5:57 am

    When you say “fetal structure” I conjure this image of an identifiable physical feature. But I believe that the human genome has been completely mapped; although I cannot be sure. I will not be surprised if a new instrument of observation is developed that will show ever more detail – limitatioms!

  • demerwater  On March 29, 2017 at 6:39 am

    I have been looking for an example of these biochemical “messengers” and the feedback mechanisms that modify or stop the process.
    Here is a splendid presentation that demonstrates how the contents inside the (closed) blood circulation system, react with the contents outside. All this marvelous biochemistry occurs before my very eyes, as I watch a my blood clot and seal off the prick of a needle – in the hands of a phlebotomist, I hasten to add.

  • Albert  On March 29, 2017 at 12:47 pm

    Khanacademy has done good piece of teaching. In the case of the fetus (unborn child) it gets nourishment and blood through the umbilical cord from the mothers placenta in the womb. If memory holds deoxygenated blood and waste also goes back through the cord to the placenta. That’s the only blood connection I recall between mother and unborn child.

    Secondly, the fetal structure for thought would include the developing brain and nervous system. Perhaps at the right time it needs an external stimulus to start the function of thought.

  • walter  On March 29, 2017 at 6:08 pm

    How does this explain genius at “birth” say Mozart, this was purely physical? Seems unlikely, So many children born to “ordinary” parents show brilliance at very young ages. I am going with a leap of faith.

  • demerwater  On March 30, 2017 at 4:08 am

    Yes, indeed! Child prodigies appear to defy science – so far; but here is a point of view that has been demonstrably factual over the centuries past.

    Each of us encounters this gap in worldly and scientific knowledge; and each of us must devise our individual manner of bridging it.
    For whatever it is worth, here is another Tyson quote.

  • walter  On March 31, 2017 at 12:44 pm

    Old story. On a aeroplane, a Cardinal started praying to himself as the plane took off. After he was finished, passenger next to him asked, Cardinal, What if there is no God. The Cardinal replied, Why take a chance. Tyson might call on God on his deathbed.

  • Albert  On March 31, 2017 at 7:00 pm

    Each of us encounters this gap in worldly and scientific knowledge; and each of us must devise our individual manner of bridging it”

    ……to fill this gap man creates a God in his own image. and give It the characteristics he would like It to have.

  • walter  On March 31, 2017 at 7:40 pm

    Ima going with GOD! ain’t taking no chance. Was lots of fun guys.

  • demerwater  On April 1, 2017 at 5:45 am

    Walter, I was going to share with you a similar story. Hopefully you will stick around long enough to enjoy it; as much as I enjoyed yours.
    It concerns an agnostic-type who asked a group of little children, “Where is God?” A bit unsure, most of them pointed towards the sky. So he pressed on, “If I go up in an aeroplane, will I see God?” One plucky little girl spoke up. “No; but if you fell out of that aeroplane, you sure would!
    Then there is the epitaph on the tombstone of an atheist:
    Here lies an atheist.
    All dressed up and nowhere to go.
