# The Abstract Form of Energy

What is an abstract form of energy, and how does a mind manipulate it? These are very important questions that must be addressed.

To begin, consider that a mind exists within a mindspace. This hidden space exists all around and within us, and every arrangement of matter is a part of one or more shared mindspaces (ie. environments).

A clear difference between spacetime and mindspace is that spacetime contains 'empty space', while mindspace does not.

In spacetime, energy is calculated by the weight and velocity of an object. If an object has mass, it contains energy. If that object is moving fast, it contains even more energy.

The concept of energy was created to explain how one physical body forces change onto another body as it moves across spacetime.

Thought theory explains that the circle and line structures in mindspace follow these same observations, however in an abstract sense.

For example, 'a rock' and 'a bottle of Coke', of the same weight, moving at the same speed, contain roughly the same amount of energy.

However, from the perspective of a mindspace, a bottle of Coke will usually contain more energy than a simple rock of similar weight and velocity.

The additional energy exists because a bottle of coke contains specific arrangements of relationships (designs, words, numbers) that are reflected from overlapping symbols.

This infuses a bottle of coke with 'abstract' energy.

Traditionally, physical energy is calculated by adding together all the sizes and speeds of its atoms - it does not take into account the 'arrangement' of these atoms - such as logos, words, pictures, etc.

In thought theory, the abstract energy must be somehow included when calculating energy.

• Physical energy ≈ sum of atoms
• Abstract energy ≈ sum of non-random arrangements between atoms
• Total energy that exists in mindspace = physical + abstract

In conclusion, the abstract properties of matter generate pulling and pushing effects that are exerted on the minds of neighboring people (and other living things), and thus qualifies as a form of energy generating some probabilistic outcomes.
