  Theosophy : Thought Power - It's Control and Culture by Annie Besant : AnandGholap.net
Thoughts, Desires, and Actions, the active manifestations in matter of Knowledge, Will, and Energy, are all of the same nature, that is, are all made up of vibrations, but differ in their phenomena, because of the different character of the vibrations.
The thought is a reproduction within the mind of the Knower of that which is not the Knower, is not the Self; it is a picture, caused by a combination of wave-motions, an image, quite literally.
When such a thought causes the mental body to vibrate, particles of the coarser matter are shaken out of the body, and their place is taken by particles of the finer grades, and thus better materials are built into the mental body.

 Thought - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Thought or thinking is a mental process which allows beings to model the world, and so to deal with it effectively according to their goals, plans, ends and desires.
A dualistic mind is one in which the one from which the thought arises considers himself to be separate from other forms.
A thought may be an idea, an image, a sound or even an emotional feeling that arises from the brain.

 Theosophy : Thought Forms by Annie Besant and C.W. Leadbeater : AnandGholap.net
The thought itself appears first to clairvoyant sight as a vibration in the mental body, and this may be either simple or complex.
If the man's thought is about himself, or is based upon a personal feeling, as the vast majority of thoughts are, it hovers round its creator and is always ready to react upon him whenever he is for a moment in a passive condition.
The thought is a good and pure one of its kind, for if there were anything base or selfish in the desire it would inevitably show itself in the darkening of the clear orange hue by dull reds, browns, or greys.

 LOGI: The thought level   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
Thoughts are structures of combinatorial concepts that alter imagery within the workspace of sensory modalities.
Even before a suggested thought rises to the surface, the suggestion may interact with mental imagery to determine whether the thought is interesting and possibly to influence the thought's final form.
Some thoughts that might follow from "X is a Y!" (unexpected concept satisfaction) are: "Why is X a Y?" (searching for explanation); or "Z means X can't be a Y!" (detection of belief violation); or "X is not a Y" (rechecking of a tentative conclusion).

 Jean Baudrillard - RADICAL THOUGHT - 1994
Thought is not so much prized for its inevitable convergences with truth as it is for the insuperable divergences that separate the two.
Similarly, radical thought is at the violent crossing point of sense and non-sense, of truth and non-truth, of the continuation of the world and the continuation of nothingness.
This thought wants to be illusion, restituting non-veracity to the facts, non- signification to the world, and formulating the reverse hypothesis that there may be nothing rather than something, tracking down this nothingness which runs under the apparent continuation of meaning.

 Thought control - SourceWatch   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
Thought control can be accomplished by "providing people with a vocabulary, a loaded language that constricts rather than broadens understanding." This can be seen in the examples listed below which have been repeated constantly by President George W. Bush and members of the Bush administration since the events of September 11, 2001.
"Thought control also discounts alternate belief systems and prevents questioning of the leader, doctrine or policy." It differs from groupthink in that in groupthink alternatives are overlooked or simply not taken into consideration.
Thought control is frequently equated with brainwashing, a concept involving a lack of compunction regarding deceiving people and commonly associated with psyops, cults, mind control, and media control.

 Thought Experiments (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
Thought experiments are devices of the imagination used to investigate the nature of things.
The thought experiment is effective in distinguishing two concepts that had previously been run together: “right to life” and “right to what is needed to sustain life.” The fetus and the violinist may each have the former, but it is not evident that either has the latter.
The main division is constructive vs destructive, that is, a thought experiment might be used positively to establish a theory or it might be used negatively to undermine a theory.

The form of the thought is correlated with its intention, while the outline is related to the thought's intensity of focus.
The social aspects of thought form activity are given their proper role and are sometimes manifest pathologically in what Wilhelm Reich called the "emotional plague." It is this plague ridden thought form that lies behind such phenomena as fascism and group psychosis.
That thoughts are energy forms and each time you think a thought you generate a certain type of frequency that follows the universal tenet of the Law of Attraction.

 Soviet Psychology: Lev Vygotsky's Thought and Language, Chapter 7
Similarly, the statement that verbal thought is composed of intellectual processes and speech functions proper applies to all verbal thought and all its manifestations and explains none of the specific problems facing the student of verbal thought.
Now Levin was used to expressing his thought fully without troubling to put it into exact words: He knew that his wife, in such moments filled with love, as this one, would understand what he wanted to say from a mere hint, and she did.
Thought and language, which reflect reality in a way different from that of perception, are the key to the nature of human consciousness.

 Myswizard » Thought Experiment   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
Thought experimentation is an a priori, rather than an empirical process, in that the experiments are conducted within the imagination (i.e., Brown’s (1993) “laboratory of the mind”;), and never in fact.
Thought experiments, which are well-structured, well-defined (rather than ill-defined) hypothetical questions that employ subjunctive reasoning (irrealis moods) — “What might happen (or, what might have happened) if.
Scientists tend to use thought experiments in the form of imaginary, “proxy” experiments which they conduct prior to a real, “physical” experiment (Ernst Mach always argued that these gedankenexperiments were “a necessary precondition for physical experiment”;).

 How New Thought influenced religions like Unity Christian Science Religious Science Wayne Dyer Marianne Williamson and ...
The founder of New Thought is generally acknowledged to be Phineas Parkhurst Quimby (1802-1866), a Maine clock maker who discovered that he could cure sick people simply by talking to them.
Dubbing New Thought "the religion of healthy-mindedness" and "Mind-cure," William James devoted several of the lectures in his seminal "Varieties of Religious Experience" (1902) to the philosophy and its offspring.
A marriage of philosophical idealism and mystical Christianity, the cornerstone of New Thought was Quimby's revelation that "every phenomenon in the natural world has its origin in the spiritual world." God is present in all things-including each one of us.

 Breaking the Hold of 'Thought'
Thought is the Master of us all - a good thought is a good master and a bad thought is a bad master.
Bad thoughts are like a sack full of stones tied to us, pulling us down at every stage, overcoming us with lethargy, disinterest and even violent aggression.
Even when we are asleep a good thought (dream) can bring the faintest of smile on our lips while a bad one can make us break into a cold sweat.

 Thought experiment - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Daniel Dennett has derisively referred to certain types of thought experiments such as the Chinese Room experiment as "intuition pumps", claiming they are simply thinly vieled appeals to intuition which fail when carefully analyzed.
Another criticism that has been voiced is that some science fiction-type thought experiments are too wild to yield clear intuitions, or that any resulting intuitions could not possibly pertain to the real world.
Thought experiments in physics are intended to give us a priori knowledge of the natural world, rather than a priori knowledge of our concepts, as philosophy tries to do.
