"It is inconceivable to me that such a network of intricate machinery should be
in existence for the sole purpose of carrying on the physical functions
connected with the growth and maintenance of the physical body" – N. Hill
The 12th Principle towards Riches; The Brain
When Think and Grow Rich author Napoleon Hill was working with the famed
inventors Dr. Alexander Graham Bell and Dr. Elmer Gates, he came up with
the analogy for the brain and how it connects us, through the subconscious
mind, to ‘Infinite Intelligence’. Here’s what he states:
- The brain is both a broadcaster and a receiver.
- You can send and receive better under the influence of emotion.
- The thoughts you send are those that you want to burn into your subconscious.
- The thoughts you receive appear in your creative imagination.
- Your subconscious mind is both a storehouse of information and your connection with Infinite Intelligence.
- Because everything in the universe is all a part of the same basic energy, the energy of your subconscious mind shares a connection with the energy of other subconscious minds.
- Under certain circumstances, the energy of an idea that is outside your mind can, through Infinite Intelligence, become a part of your subconscious mind.
- When such ideas come to you, they flash into your creative imagination as hunches, intuitions, flashes of insight, or inspirations.
What are your thoughts?
What does this mean to you? It means you can believe in Napoleon Hill's
It is a fact that some minds clash the moment they come into contact with
each other, while other minds show a natural affinity for each other. It's quite
probable that the mind is made up of energy, and when two minds come close
enough to form a contact, the mixing sets up a chemical reaction and starts
vibrations that affect the two individuals pleasantly or unpleasantly.
The work of Einstein and other scientists who have investigated the
interconnectedness of all things, have only served to reinforce Hill’s ideas. As
the detractors of Marconi eventually discovered: just because you can’t see
something, that doesn't mean it isn't there.
A fascinating statement by the inventor of the telephone Alexander
“It has occurred to me that there must be a great deal to be learned about the
effect of those vibrations in the great gap, where the ordinary human senses
are unable to hear, see, or feel the movement... It seems to me that in this gap
lie the vibrations that we have assumed to be given off by our brains and
nerve cells when we think. We may assume that the brain cells act as a
battery and that the current produced flows along the nerves. But does it end
there? Does it not pass out of the body in waves that flow around the world
unperceived by our senses, just as wireless (radio) waves passed
unperceived before Hertz and others discovered their existence?”– A G Bell
