    Do Our Thoughts Have the Power to Affect Reality?


    A women performs the Falun Gong sitting meditation. Researchers found that meditation and positive thinking
    can produce long-term brain changes and development of positive traits. (Jeff Nenarella/The Epoch Times)


    “All that we are is the result of what we have thought.
    The mind is everything. What we think we become.”
    —Attributed to Gautama Siddhartha, the Buddha



    According to Dr. Joe Dispenza, every time we learn or experience something new, hundreds of millions of neurons reorganize themselves.

    Dr. Dispenza is known throughout the world for his innovative theory concerning the relationship between mind and matter. Perhaps best known as one of the scientists featured in the acclaimed 2004 docudrama What the Bleep Do We Know, his work has helped reveal the extraordinary properties of the mind and its ability to create synaptic connections by carefully focusing our attention.

    Just imagine: In every new experience, a synaptic connection is established in our brain. With every sensation, vision, or emotion never explored before, the formation of a new relationship between two of more than 100 thousand million brain cells is inevitable.

    But this phenomenon needs focused reinforcement in order to bring about real change. If the experience repeats itself in a relatively short period of time, the connection becomes stronger. If the experience doesn’t happen again for a long period of time, the connection can become weakened or lost.

    Science used to believe that our brains were static and hardwired, with little chance for change. However, recent research in neuroscience has discovered that the influence of every corporal experience within our thinking organ (cold, fear, fatigue, happiness) is working to shape our brains.

    If a cool breeze is capable of raising all the hairs on one’s forearm, is the human mind capable of creating the same sensation with identical results? Perhaps it is capable of much more.

    “What if just by thinking, we cause our internal chemistry to be bumped out of normal range so often that the body’s self-regulation system eventually redefines these abnormal states as regular states?” asks Dispenza in his 2007 book, Evolve Your Brain, The Science of Changing Your Mind. “It’s a subtle process, but maybe we just never gave it that much attention until now.”

    "A Trippy Mind-Reading Goo That Reacts to Your Emotions

    "Russian artist Dmitry Morozov turns neural activity into art. He’s used brainwaves to control robotic musical instruments and harnessed psychic powers to stage performance art. His latest creation, called Solaris, works like a mood ring, moves like a lava lamp, and looks like The Matrix while making its observer feel like a Delphic Oracle.

    "Morozov outfits observers with a $499 electroencephalography headset and places them in front of a curvy, chrome tank filled with a glowing, UV-sensitive liquid. He instructs viewers to communicate with the inert object, a seemingly bizarre request, but the headset picks up the resulting brainwaves and activates a powerful magnet hidden under the placid pool’s surface. Magnetic pulses linked to the viewer’s brainwave then stimulate an inky ferrofluid. The splotch of black ooze reacts in turn, roiling in response to stressful thoughts and smoothing as the observer calms down.

    "Over time, some viewers begin to form a dialog with the murky blemish, controlling its behavior with neural activity. Experts can will the beating blot around the surface, telepathically force it to submerge and reemerge, and otherwise engage it through silent meditation."

    Sure, our thoughts do have the power to affect reality. I was checking out some action on a BJ table early Friday morning and this is what I saw... a young lady on first base has 6,3 and the dealer up card is a 6, she chooses to hit and gets dealt a 6. Then the lady on second base tucks her hand, they guy on third base has a hard 17 and chooses to hit in which he receives a 2! The dealer flips over a ten in the hole and then deals himself a 5 to complete a 3 card 21. I just kept on walking and left that casino to seek out a better table after seeing that play go down.

    It seemed like the people on the table already had his streak theory in use... streak theory for being habitual losers that is who didn't look like they were having any fun, and from the looks of things I'm sure they were getting their asses handed to them on a silver platter. It's real easy to pick out the long term losers who sit at a Blackjack table. Somehow I like watching other people self destruct at the table, does that make me a sadist?

    Not if you feel compassion and empathy for them.
