The law of attraction is the name given to the maxim “like attracts like” which in New Thought philosophy is used to sum up the idea that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts a person brings positive or negative experiences into their life. This belief is based upon the idea that people and their thoughts are both made from “pure energy”, and the belief that like energy attracts like energy Law of Attraction
I do believe there is an organizing principle here( the breaking of symmetry triggers the Higgs mechanism , and of late, [Positive energy theorem] as organizing principle)……some analogies come to mind. While materialistic of mind as mass), one has to begin to understand how and where this all begins?
“You don’t see what you’re seeing until you see it,” Dr. Thurston said, “but when you do see it, it lets you see many other things. Elusive Proof, Elusive Prover: A New Mathematical Mystery
Quickly, what came to view was the dung beetle and how elephant shit is rolled into a ball, while this ball becomes the food for a new generation. Not the best analogy, but one might get the abstraction of a point in a circle.
|The fish is “soul food.” The water the unconscious, all possible facets of the sensorium. The hook and worm, aspects of the “focus held” while you are fishing.|
|The Principle of Finite Imagination II|
While one is out fishing…..you drop your line into the water……you use bait to attract the fish……and wait for a bite? Complexity, of getting fish from a large body of water.
So while analogies, these represent an action we are quite amenable too, given environment and the bait as an attractive, can bring things to a point.
I too read Napoleon Hill many years ago, and this did form part of my developing perspective about what and how I think now. Positive thoughts versus negative ones which serve as a precursor to environmental change. This can be psychological in affect, as to relationships with people and what is predominant in mind. How we say things to our selves and how things become bleak in our outlook, from our constant underlying breath and from what we can say to ourselves and how we think.
Ideas drawn from vast reservoir of information has to have an attractor, so you set the stage? Thoughts? Incubation? AHA!
