Symbols are abstract structures from which intelligence emerges, and they exist as a union between thought and matter.

There is a region of intersection (ie. a Venn diagram) between ideas and things that holds a real form of value.

The conventional wisdom is that our subjective values are separately stored in each of our brains and that our brains are fundamentally independent from one another.

However in thought theory, there is a direct relationship between the localized, abstract values in our minds and the specific arrangements of matter around us.

In effect, shared, hidden symbols will be shown to be the foundation for how everything appears within the Universe.

So if mind and matter are connected, what is its mathematical proof? How are hyper-dimensional structures manipulated by our minds? How can we predict physical events in time by measuring some interactions between symbols?

We may need a new mathematical framework to explain information, symbols, and an abstract space that dictates to the minds and bodies on Earth.

In Theory of Thought, symbols are basically assembled from the 5 relationship patterns:

A symbol, explained by relationship patterns, is the basic construct of information.

Understanding the full extent of how symbols rule the world around us will require a re-examination of nearly everything.

**The Basic Philosophy of Symbols within Thought Theory:**

- Symbols are a mixture of thought (abstract) and matter (physical).
- All symbols store meaning and mass.
- Symbols are things that can be visualized. Every symbol can be described in a photo or drawing.
- Symbols are the basic building blocks of information.
- Symbolic information is the foundation of the Universe and the brain exists to read and measure it.
- All symbols are mathematically represented by the
*5 Relationship Patterns*of mindspace. - The fundamental properties of a symbol are dimensions of the Universe.
- Every symbol has 12 dimensions. Therefore, the Universe has 12 dimensions (not just 4).
- Symbols obey universal laws, in the same way that matter obeys universal laws.
- The motion of symbols within a 12-dimensional mindspace, forces matter to move in the physical space.
- Every single atom of matter, or arrangement of atoms, must be considered symbolic.
- Two or more separate arrangements of matter can represent a single symbol in mindspace.
- Symbols share and exchange their inner-groups of sub symbols with other external symbols.
- New symbols are birthed within a hierarchy and have parents and siblings.
- It is possible to create a map of symbols, that shows their positions within a hyper-dimensional space.
- Each point within mindspace is a stack of interrelated symbols. Two symbols may appear on the same position in 3D space but each is considered to be on a different layer of a hyper-dimensional stack.
- The distance between symbols is related to symmetry - the similarities and differences between two symbols.
- Similar symbols, which are symmetrical in some ways, will naturally order themselves together.
- The probabilistic laws of symbols should be explained by the same probabilistic laws of quantum mechanics.
- Across all scales, physical events are created from the consequences of inter-related symbols.
- There is a process of equilibrium that forces the physical world to change with respect to the reordering of symbols in the abstract space.
