Chapter 13 - the brain: the broadcasting and receiving station for thought
- every human brain is borth a broadcasting and receiving station for the vibration of thought
- the creative imagination is the 'receiving set' of the brain, which receives thoughts released by the brains of others. It is the agency of communication between one's conscious, or reasoning, mind and the four sources from which one may receive thought stimuli
- when stimulated or 'stepped up' to a high rate of vibration, the mind becomes more receptive to the vibration of thought that reaches it through the ehter from outside sources. this 'stepping up' process takes place through the positive emotions or negative emotions. through the emotions, the vibrations of thought may be increased
- vibrations of an exceedingly high rate are the only vibrations picked up and carried, by the ether, from one brain to another
- thought is energy travelling at an exceedingly high rate of vibration. it is this type of thought that passes from one brain to another, through the broadcasting machinery of the human brain
- a brain stimulated by the emotion of sex vibrates at a much more rapid rate than it does when that emotion is quiescent of absent
- the result of sex transmutation is the increase of the rate of vibration of thoughts to such a pitch that the creative imagination becomes highly receptive to ideas it picks up from the ether
- the subconscious mind is the 'sending station' of the brain, through which vibrations of thought are broadcast. the creative imagination is the 'receiving set', through which the vibrations of thought are picked up from the ether
- you have but three principles to bear in mind, and to apply, when you wish to use your boradcasting stations - the subconscious mind, creative imagination, and autosuggesstion. the stimuli through which you put these three principles into action have been described - the procedure begins with desire
the greatest forces are 'intangible'
- through the ages that have passed, people have depended too much upon their physical senses, and have limited their knowledge to physical hings that they could see, touch, weight and measure
the dramatic story of the brain
- it is inconceiivable that such a network of intricate machinery should be in existence for the sole purpose of carrying on the physical functions incidental to growth and maintenance of the physical body. is it not likely that the same system, which give billions of brain cells the media for communication one with another, provides also the means of communication with other intangible forces?
what is telepathy?
- one conclusion that wright draws with some confidence is that telepathy and clairvoyance are really one and the same gift. that is, the faculty that "sees" a card face down on a table seems to be exactly the same one that "reads" a thought residing only in another mind. there are several grounds for believing this. so far, for example, the two gifts have been found in every person who enjoys either of them. in every one so far the two have been of equal vigour, almost exactly. screens, walls, distances, have no effect at all on either. wright advances from this conclusion to express what he puts forward as no more that the mere "hunch" that other extra-sensory expereinces, prophetic dreams, premonitions of disaster and the like, may also prove to be part of the same faculty. the reader is not asked to accept any of these conclusions unless he finds it necessary, but the evidence that rhine has piled up must remain impressive
- the procedure is very simple. we sit down at a conference table, clearly state the nature of the problem under consideration, and then begin discussing it. each contributes whatever thoughts may occur. the strange thing about this method of mind stimulation is that it places each participant in communication with unknown sources of knowledge definitely outside his own experience
