- You are not superstitiously controlling the universe with your mind.
- You are not a god with superpowers whenever you want to use them.
- You are not superstitiously co-creating your reality with help from the universe.
- You are not a witch, warlock, magician, or a source of any supernatural powers.
- You are not more than just a transceiver, that is, you are not a source because God is the only source.
- You do not have any ability or power to create anything, because you can only receive and host creative energy.
- Human thinking is not magical, powerful, creative, changing, controlling, or a god-like energy transforming or remaking the world.
- Human thinking does not even influence anything despite the magical abilities Idealists, Postmodernists, Constructivists, New Agers, primitive societies, and primitive religions claim for human thinking.
2 Basic Objections to Superstitious Interpretations
First: Your thinking is never powerful and never causes anything.
A: You misinterpret your thinking to be powerful because you are only aware of your thinking and not the forces behind or co-occurring with your thinking.
B: You misinterpret your thinking to be causal because you falsely believe your thinking is leading your soul and heart instead of just following your soul.
Second: You are never the source of any cause or power.
A: Your ego gets you to falsely claim that you are causal rather than just a host for causes.
B: Your ego gets you to falsely claim that you are the source of the power that only comes through you. Power does not come through your thoughts but only through your self as a vessel.
