Inside every environment are arrangements of matter that reflect its values. Within a restaurant for example, the material arrangements will be in forms of decorations, menus, food, etc. The arrangements are placed there by the minds occupying and supporting the establishment.
Thinking people, working within organizations, manifest symbolic arrangements; and if the minds of the working people disappear from the organization, the arrangements will in time fade away and disappear from the space.
The intelligent arrangements of matter that we see around us, are assembled and driven into motion by an invisible network of patterns. These patterns are the relationships that hold everything together, and all minds exert control over them.
Theory of Thought explains that the patterns are interwoven with the laws of physics.
By manipulating patterns, our minds exert enormous control over SpaceTime.
What this means: If a group of minds is well organized, their environment will succeed and its symbols will reproduce and spread. However, if its minds are badly organized, the environment will appear to fail and its symbolic arrangements of matter will disappear.
To dramatically change the symbolic arrangements of the restaurant, for example, a special donor could come in and replace all of its equipment, furniture, branding, etc... However over time, if the groups of minds that operate the restaurant have not reconfigured their abstract mental patterns in mindspace, the restaurant's material environment will be forced to regress back until it equilibrates itself with the mental patterns supporting it.
'Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.'
Receivers of charity (and lottery) often fail, simply because the structure of their mental patterns are incapable of supporting some overbearing value, and inevitably, their decision-making patterns are forced by a hidden hyper-dimensional equilibrium process.
In the future, instead of manipulating matter within an environment directly (such as material donation), which lead to mind-matter imbalances (leading to corruption), we will discover how to manipulate minds and manipulate arrangements of matter indirectly, by taking advantage of the mind-matter balancing mechanism.
Successful people often access this level of abstraction, however the mathematics and rules behind it have never been scientifically described.
Figuring out ways to map and then re-organize these patterns in mindspace will safely enable scientists to exert control over all parts of the material world… helping to solve civilization's greatest challenges.
