The Nature of Thought.


What is a thought?

Sub-atomic particles.

In my learning of electrical theory, I was taught that electrons - which are sub-atomic particles - are responsible for the transmission of electrical current.

When you apply a charged particle (electron) to an atom, it absorbs it but releases a similar particle to the next atom. This "daisy chain" is what constitutes an electric current.

There is a proviso. Some molecular structures - arrangements of atoms - conduct electricity, and some do not. But even that is not totally true. Air for example will not normally conduct electricity, but as we have all seen during an electrical storm, under certain conditions, air does indeed conduct electricity.

I believe that "certain conditions" may exist for very tiny amounts of electricity as well as enormous ones.


When you "think", electrical activity can be detected in your brain.

To invoke a simple analogy, I would liken a thought to an electrical version of a piece of music. If you were to study the written form of a piece of music, you would see notes as positions on a linear scale, which could be recreated by anyone who understood the laws of that scale. A thought is an electrical version of the same process - high and low electrical charges and all points inbetween mapped against a scale of time - as we seem to view thoughts as having a beginning and an end. Like a piece of music, if you happened to drop into it at any certain point, you could still expand it in either direction because it had some form of understood signature. Something you were already familiar with.

I shall share some versions of the conception of thought.


Bhuddism says - there is thought. Not your thought or my thought - just thought.

Abraham says - every thought that ever was - still is.

Quantum physics say - there cannot be a universe in which thought does not play a part.


How can we reconcile these diverse statements.?

Actually, I see them as all being convergent with one idea.


If we examine the nature of the universe - the entire thing - what could we consider as constants.?

There are always atoms, so obviously there are always sub-atomic particles. Even in the vacuum of space, there is cosmic dust, and as such, there must be sub-atomic particles. In every part of our human existence, we and every part of our planet, including the atmosphere, are atoms and particles.

If we were to assume that our thoughts were simply arrangements of sub-atomic particles, then they could exist in all parts of the universe.

We could consider the entire universe as being the largest ever imagined hard drive and storage medium of thought. Every thought of every mind that thought it. This would explain how we can receive thought in response to any question we pose in our own mind. As long as we are a match for the thought that exists, we can have access to it.

Abraham say that there is very little original thought. This would behave well with our model. As we pose questions within our own minds, we simply become receptors of thought that already exists. A perfectly formed answer appears in our mind as if we had just magically invented it.

This does not mean that there is no unique thought. As we grapple with problems, or previously realised answers, we sift through all the data that is available to us in our current state of reception, and that is a state never before realised, as we are new beings to those who went before, and we carry new perspectives. We may put a new slant on an old thought, or blend several thoughts in a way that has never previously occurred, so we are at the cutting edge of thought as human beings.

I often used to ponder, how there could ever be new perspective when everybody was instructed to learn from the same books. If we were all to parrot the learning of others, how would we ever evolve. I now understand that we all are different, and despite our similar trainings, may each access simultaneously, new varieties of old or established thought, and bring it to a new conclusion, simply by adding it all together in a new way, with a new bias in this direction or that. And then, our new "assembly" of thought is now added to the mix for others to access and blend in accordance with what they may add.

What an easy simplification of many inexplicable concepts this provides.

Going to play hell with anti-plagiarism laws though...

Smile.


So.

Let us entertain a new idea.

That our thoughts exist outside us rather than in our heads.

That our brains are finely tuned transmitters and receivers. We transmit every thought we have, and any other who might be tuned to the exact same frequency as us has equal access to our thought, just as we have access to any thought that there ever was which is on the same frequency as our current mindset.

When it is said that "every answer you will ever need is already inside you", that is easily explained by the concept that we all can have access to every thought that has ever been. We simply need to be a match for it and it suddenly appears in our mind.


Thanks to the advances of science, it is now possible to study sub-atomic particles. Several remarkable discoveries have been already made.

Previously it had been noted that certain sub-atomic particles were able to "blink in and out of existence". A question was posed; "where are they when they are not here?".

Current thinking has changed a little. Certain particles "do not exist until they are being observed".

So here we are folks.

I pose this explanation. We are now studying thought itself. The reason such particles do not exist until they are being observed is because thought plays a part in it. Because it is thought.

In another recent experiment it was discovered that a particle could be in two places at the same time.

I found a missing thing and I am certain that wherever I decided it was - it would be. That item could have been in many places at once.

But it did not need to be. It only needed to be in one place. It needed to be in the place where I would "observe" it.

And I did.

And so it was.


When dealing with sub-atomic particles we are dealing with the very fabric of thought. So what we expect to see - we do.

The universe in its atomic form holds all thought, and we can add to it, access it, and observe it if we wish, but it will not behave in any orthodox fashion, because it is what our thoughts consist of.

We have come to a point where we are attempting to study our own thoughts in their most minute form. What we observe is whatever we could think we would observe.

So that's nice..


I have taken you a long way from an explanation of what I believe a thought is.

I have also explained where thoughts are stored, and why it is that we can suddenly access a thought that we innately understand did not come from us - even though it may be pinpoint accurate to a question currently in our own mind.

I welcome the long term stayers.
