Distracting Minutia - Replacing Thought with Matter

RTT: Random Tuesday Thoughts -

Thoughts, thoughts, thoughts. thoughts.... 


I just read that the mind is so powerful that it can affect matter. The theory is that if you think or want or look for something hard enough and long enough, it will manifest itself. Matter is created. That's why when an astronomer is looking for that elusive new point of light in the sky, he will eventually find it, because his mind will place it there for him.

But it's the looking, the searching, the mind focused intently on the task at hand, sometimes focused for years - to find that new star. The astronomer's thoughts can create matter.

This blows my mind. I'm scared that it means it's all in our heads. If I look and think hard enough for something, it might just materialize. "Don't think zombies, don't think zombies."

Maybe I can use it to find my keys.

Or maybe if we think hard enough we can turn the government into rational thinking, reasonably responsible people that have our best interest at heart.  THINK HARD People!

On another note:
It is amazing when a crisis hits the family, how diverse the perceptions. Some are very accepting of the trials and tribulations and don't seemed phased a bit. Strife like everything else in life is natural. It's just the circle of life.

Others are go getters that jump on a problem, wrestle it to the ground, give it a couple of well placed hits and walk away with hands pumping triumphantly in the air.

Others imagine worst case scenarios, some to be prepared, others to be fearful. The fearful bemoan and complain how horrible everything is, putting themselves through so much distress and pain.

See, some are half full people and some are half empty people. Let's hope the "thought to matter" theory doesn't really work. Because if it does, the half empty people better watch out!

On a related note:
I remember a friend saying when her boyfriend dumped her, "I thought I mattered."

Imagine that. He never thought of her, so of course she never materialized as matter. Wow, does this stuff work in reverse?  If no one has thoughts of you ever, do you dematerialize?  You don't matter?    Heady stuff, indeed.

Can you see why I feel so distracted sometimes?

For more heady reading stroll on over to Keely's UnMom and get a dose of random thoughts.  They might just materialize.

You are cracking me up. (I think the same way.)
And I am a worst case scenario kind of person. Which works since John is exactly the opposite, so neither of us feels too bad when the result ends up somewhere in the middle. :-)
Did you change your feed? I had you on my Google Reader, but you're not updating there..

SK: I don't think I changed my feed. But I never know what I'm doing around here, so I might have. I'm clueless.

Unmit: Ray, what did you do?!

I love Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and there is an episode where a girl was so ignored, she became invisible.... so there you go! :)
