HUMAN THOUGHT = PHYSICAL MATTER

“For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.” —Acts 17:28


  • Matter is really thought, thought in the mind of God, not human thought.
  • Human thought is like matter: dead, simple, a thing.

“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” —Isaiah 55:9


MAKING THOUGHT A PROBLEM

  • Thought is about sensation and sensation is about energy.
  • Your problems occur in two basic ways: (1) claiming thought is sensation; (2) claiming thought is energy.

THOUGHT AS SENSATION

  • When you mistake thought for sensation, you mistake thought for reality.
  • This puts you out of touch with reality and leads to prejudice, misjudgment, and all manner of thinking errors such as distorting evidence.

THOUGHT AS ENERGY

  • When you mistake thought for energy, you mistake thought for doing.
  • This sets you up for failure as thought cannot do.
  • For instance, relying on thought to remember means you will forget.

THOUGHT HAS PURPOSE

  • Use thought as an indicator.
  • Use thought to point to reality.
  • Use thought to point to sensation.
  • Use thought as a signpost or a map.
  • Remember, as Korzybski said, the map is not the territory.
