Streams of Thought

Streams of Thought

Thought StreamsAlbert Einstein was renowned for his thought experiments. The whole Theory of Relativity came from him musing whimsically about what it would be like to ride on a beam of light.

Now neuroscientists are not totally sure where our thoughts actually come from, or where our memories really hang out. Cosmologists and physicists are spending billions of dollars trying to find out why 96% of the Universe is basically ‘dark’.

Now it’s just a thought and a whimsy but wouldn’t it be kind of amusing if it was thought itself that formed the basis for all that dark energy, and that memories turned out to be a form of dark matter.

So just imagine for a moment if all the thoughts you have had since you became self-aware, including dreams and unconscious thoughts, were lined up as a ‘thought stream’, plotted against the timeline of your life. Then imagine that your life, and the lives of everything else that is living, is formed of what you experience as you ride down this stream of thought. Note that most of these ‘thoughts’ are just feelings and sensations and not the inner dialogue we think of as thought.

The Mind of God?

Together then, all life forms ride on thought streams that collectively form the fabric of the Universe. Single celled life may only be capable of tuning into thought forms that fuel the essential life processes. Complex animals such as all dolphins, and some humans, have neurological centres that can tune into ‘higher level’ thoughts like compassion, curiosity, creativity and love. All are aspects of course of the thought streams that emanate from the mind that some call God, which is why it it proclaimed God is omnipresent and in all of us. This could give us an agnostic model of God that all could embrace irrespective of creed, dogma and scientific leaning.

In passing, it is worth noting that not all what we think of as life, or conscious, may incarnate in the material plane. Furthermore, what we consider to be inanimate like the seas, the air and rocks and even scaling up to whole planets, moons and stars could also be ‘borne’ on discarnate thought forms.

The Fusion of Thought

Nuclear ProcessIn the same way that elementary particles can smash together and coalesce or shatter, thoughts can meet too and merge to form new thoughts. Thoughts also possess a wave-particle dualism. They can merely pass through as ethereal whispers on the wind or coalesce, densify and interact with the physical plane. Ask any alchemist.

Some share their journey together; others bounce off each other and go their separate ways; some annihilate each other in a puff of energy.

The Free Will Paradox

So as our thought streams merge with those of others, they can take off in different directions that give us a multifarious and seemingly random set of life experiences. This may solve the paradox that all is preordained yet we live in an illusion we call reality where it appears we have the free will to change anything.

Perhaps what we perceive as free will is merely our natural reaction to incoming, seemingly random thought streams.

Perhaps also, if you are not totally happy with your life’s direction and pace, you could jump off your current thought stream and start riding another one?

This blog is such an example and is only ‘just a thought’. Please add you thoughts to this meme by way of comment below.

Flavours of Thought

“Truly, food for thought. I really enjoyed chewing over the contents.”

Flavours of Thought started as a chapter in the light bulb book and has spawned into a book in its own right. Not only that but the most amazing sequels to Flavours are coming along too … watch this space.

It is a book of transformation.

We go about our days not giving our thoughts a second thought. This is a real shame as our thoughts fundamentally changes the world around us.

In Part 1 of Flavours of Thought, our thoughts processes are divided into groups of three, namely Ethereal Whispers, Unconscious Murmurs and Directives. Each group is then further divided into seven flavours.

By thinking about our each of our thoughts as having one of these 21 flavours, a transformation happens. We start to realise we are not a slave to them anymore and they will yield to our will and direction.

Part 11 of the book, Recipes for Fresh Thinking, then shows how these 21 flavours can be combined into 21 sample recipes (there are billions of other permutations) to tackle common issues like self-anger all the way through to finding your soul path.

The simplicity of this book belies its power as it is crafted from ancient wisdom but in a modern context.

“This book is intrinsically simple. Simple to read; simple to understand; simple to apply. Its simplicity is what makes it genius.”

See what readers are already saying about it …

“Oh my you are brilliant with your wit and insight!” – Tim Johnson, Director of Strategy, 4Networking Ltd

“Anti-perception is an intriguing concept and just on of the may gems to be found in Flavours of Thought which is a delightfully simple journey into personal development. The book can be used to build a much larger and more powerful framework that I believe hints at an even greater innovation which surprisingly is not often found in the personal development industry. I thoroughly recommend you read it and judge for yourself.” – Bill Liao, Founder of

“It is the deceptive power in its apparent simplicity which allows Flavours of Thought to be easily accessible to both beginners and time served devotees of personal development work. The book is cleverly engineered and crafted to produce light bulb moments (or understanding) whether it’s being read cover to cover, dipped into randomly or as an aide memoir when required. I do all three …. often!” – Jackie Walker, Edinburgh

“It’s brilliant! I love the idea of thinking about thoughts in a way that encourages my intuition, without embroiling me in my intellect.” – Kuumba Nia, author of The Circle of One

“Through gaining an understanding of the flavours in my thought process and applying the recipes I am now positively dealing with being hurt and rejected and using them to remove frustration and to find my soul path. I have applied recipes to my business, to my writing and to the way I chose to live. As a result, I can now see that in every situation I have a glass half full mentality, where before there may have been despair. This is one inspirational, magical and thought changing book that has the power to change your very being.” – Mike Smith

“This book takes personal development it to a different level. No stuffy 50 year old theories that people still hang their hats on. Refreshing, thought provoking and inspirational.” – Anita-Clare Field
