TPS2 Session 608 Deleted. Seth’s Preface: “The Manufacture of Personal Reality” April 5, 1972 correlating core Oversoul reincarnation brain

As you know, the mind forms matter. The physical brain only perceives the appearance of matter in one of its many manifestations. There are many gradations of matter, therefore, as I have told you.

The subject of matter then becomes one of correlating inner data with outward experience and appearance. The inner core of the self has no difficulty in uniting and correlating the outward experience of its many personalities, but the subject of reincarnation cannot be understood without a knowledge of the nature of matter.

(Pause at 10:00.) The brain, as opposed to the mind, needs this correlation. In the framework of three-dimensional reality in which reincarnation exists, the structure of the body itself requires (in quotes) “time” lapses. Messages do not leap instantaneously through the nervous system. The mind exists independently of the brain, but with connections to it. It can perceive without time lapses. The physical body exists within an electromagnetic order.

SS Part One: Chapter 3: Session 520, March 25, 1970 permanent form environment constant thought

(With pauses): Your scientists are finally learning what philosophers have known for centuries — that mind can influence matter. They still have to discover the fact that mind creates and forms matter.

[...] The physical matter that composed your body a moment ago is different in important ways from the matter that forms your body in this instant.

What happens to a thought when it leaves your conscious mind? [...] For these thoughts and emotions that have left your conscious mind will lead you into other environments.

DEaVF1 Chapter 3: Session 889, December 17, 1979 units waves cu particles operate

One mind alone could not come into being from chance alone; one thought could not leap from an infinite number of nerve ends, if matter itself was not initially alive with consciousness, packed with the intent to be. [...]

Now: I call the building blocks of matter CU’s—units of consciousness. They form physical matter as it exists in your understanding and experience. Units of consciousness also form other kinds of matter that you do not perceive.1

[...] Basically the units move faster than light,2 slowing down, in your terms, to form matter. [...] Scientifically, again, the units can be thought of as building blocks of matter. [...]

NoPR Part Two: Chapter 17: Session 664, May 21, 1973 catastrophe institutions earthquakes caterpillar ice

[...] Your feelings have as much natural validity as the tides, and they have their own kind of attraction — mind does move matter. A ring manipulated at a seance under controlled conditions is but the most simple kind of demonstration of the great ability of mind to interact with matter. [...]

TSM Chapter Ten doorway Bill Mark apparition sketch

Throughout the centuries many people have recognized that mind and matter were related, but the Seth Material specifically gives the ways and means by which mind is translated into the reality that we know. Exactly what force is beneath the smallest units of matter, for example? How does the breakthrough into matter occur? [...]

[...] Now Seth told us that we had opened the door ourselves, using psychic energy to do so, and that this was just one instance of mind influencing matter.

“In a very real manner, events or objects are actually focal points where highly charged psychic impulses are transformed into something that can be physically perceived: a breakthrough into matter. When such highly charged impulses intersect or coincide, matter is formed. The reality behind such an explosion into matter is independent of the matter itself. [...]

TPS7 Deleted Session November 5, 1983 pillow noises left unconscious ginger

[...] Instead, of course, he should then remind himself of the roles of the conscious and the unconscious minds—and then remind himself that the unconscious mind can handle such matters easily—as indeed it can. [...]

[...] Let the unconscious mind do that for you, I told her. [...] that were necessary—unless they were a specialist in such matters. I said that such a simple action must be governed by other portions of the unconscious mind that are conscious in their own rights. [...]

[...] With a small inspiration, I told her that in the light of the session today she should do the same thing as far as her understanding of the roles of the conscious and unconscious minds goes. It was a good analogy—to let the unconscious mind be concerned with how she was going to be healed, and so forth. [...]

You can at least keep these facts in your minds. It is a matter of organization and of focus. [...]

[...] It also made him think, however, that he was not changing the world in any way that mattered in any important degree—that those in authority did not even read them, and that even my latest work (Mass Reality) would make no inroads. [...]

Remember to keep open-minded about individual scientists, also. [...]

UR2 Section 5: Session 725 December 11, 1974 strands identity mountain invaded rocks

12. While reading those passages on identity, the reader might keep in mind the subject matter of Appendix 18: the complicated relationships involving Jane, Ruburt, and Seth.

[...] That resulting matter eventually returns to the earth, where it helps form all other living things. The “dead” matter — the residue of a bird, the sloughed-off cells — these things are not then used by other birds (though they may be occasionally), but by men and women. [...] Yet in your terms any identity, no matter how “minute,” retains itself and its identity through many forms and alliances of organizations.

[...] Atoms and molecules build blocks of matter, in your terms, even while the atoms and molecules remain separate. [...] For that matter (amused), if you will forgive me for that old pun, the atoms and molecules that form the table today did not have anything to do with the table five years ago — though the table appeared the same then as now.

TES1 Session 13 January 6, 1964 enzymes chlorophyll solidified mental wires

[...] It is an attempt to get to the heart, the mind’s heart, of the matter.

[...] You understand that generalized material on the fifth dimension and other matters in no way jeopardizes her present personality, or causes strain or panic. [...]

[...] You must try not to categorize things in old ways, but when you open your mind you will see a similarity between chlorophyll as a mental enzyme or mover, and emotion which is never still. [...]

TES2 Session 73 July 22, 1964 Pipers constructions chair seed depth

The mind constructs into matter its own idea of reality, and this is where personal expectation comes into play. You do not only create your own environment, generally speaking, you create it concretely, in forms of mass and matter.

The atoms and molecules, energy in matter, appear and disappear instantaneously. Energy constantly is constructed into the guise of matter, but matter is the simultaneous expression of energy under certain conditions.

As I have told you, form is not a characteristic of matter. [...] You observe that grass often appears where seed has been sown, and you conclude erroneously that the seed grows from matter within it, and that grass grows from the seed.

TPS1 Session 490 (Deleted) June 25, 1969 controls symptoms Saratoga restraints issue

[...] He also wanted to understand the effect of mind on matter. [...]

His conscious mind, when he is not writing, should be anchored on something. [...] His mind, his conscious mind, is the type that should be anchored in such a way, for it is overactive, otherwise, and when he is not at his best it will leap to brooding. [...]

Since he had temporarily put you in the role of a controlling factor, this was also in the back of his mind. [...] The issues were not identical, you see, but similar enough in his mind.

NoPR Part Two: Chapter 12: Session 647, March 12, 1973 Satan denial Adam evil Buddhism

[...] Neither theory contains an understanding of the functions of the conscious mind, or the evolution of consciousness — or, for that matter, certain aspects of greater physics. [...] The expanding universe theory1 applies to the mind as well as to the universe.

An association could trigger the clear memory of a past agony in the bewildered new mind. [...] Man’s mind then struggled to contain many images — past, present, and future imagined ones — and was forced to correlate these in any given moment of time. [...]

In terms of simple biological function, you now had a species no longer completely dependent upon instinct, yet still with all the natural built-in desires for survival, and the appearance within it of a mind able to make decisions and distinctions.

NoPR Part One: Chapter 3: Session 618, September 28, 1972 core Seagull Dick unstructured belief

[...] You must understand that these are not simply dead ideas, like debris, within your mind. They are psychic matter. [...]

As you apprehend them through association you come quite close to examining the contents of your mind in a free fashion. But if you drop the time concept and then view the conscious content of your mind through other core ideas, you are still structuring. [...] Build them up or tear them down, but do not allow yourself to become blind to the furniture of your own mind.

[...] If you are not accustomed to examining your own mind, then you can allow separate growths of this kind to form about a belief until you cannot distinguish one from the other. [...] (Seth called for the hyphen.) Data that seems unrelated to this core belief is then not assimilated but thrown into the corners of your mind, unused, and you are denied the value of the information.

NoME Part Three: Chapter 6: Session 812, October 1, 1977 paranoid Paranoia misinterpretation shared Peter

When I say that a person misinterprets sense data, I mean that the fine balance between mind and matter becomes overstrained in one direction. [...]

[...] It is up to the conscious mind to interpret sense events as clearly and concisely as possible. [...]

TES4 Session 160 June 7, 1965 traffic action impediments mutant unimpeded

I have often mentioned that the divisions in our subject matter are often arbitrary, and for practical purposes of discussion only. The word suggestion is in itself so bound in your minds with other matters that even I find it difficult not to let the subject matter become suggestive of matters that do not really belong under discussion.

The innate comprehension of which we have spoken is a basic portion of all atoms and molecules, about which the physical matter is formed, and without which the formation of physical matter would be impossible.

It goes without saying that each newborn consciousness within your system carries within it the capsule comprehension of which I have previously spoken; and if you recall, each atom and molecule, each and every smallest particle that can by any stretch of the imagination be called physical matter, contains within it its own independent capsule comprehension—inherent suggestions in coded form, in not one but several codes, that give complete instructions for development and growth.

[...] The faces that you alone can paint can leap into your mind no matter what you are doing, and they are not dependent upon good lighting, though your final rendition of them might be.

To his mind it is directly in opposition to creativity.

[...] Remember his literal mind, and also that he does sometimes operate with extremes. [...]

TES3 Session 93 September 30, 1964 tub Larry leaked pajamas theatre

[...] The conscious mind perceives matter. Yet even then it does not perceive matter directly, but by a very indirect path, and only because the whole self directs a certain portion of its energies in that direction.

Now, in any dream you will find a unifying image that will seem as diverse as this to the conscious mind. [...] In that dream you found the word tub referring to many various meanings, but in many cases you will find various other images, all cunningly connected so that it seems most unfortunate to you that the conscious mind cannot interpret them.

Only in this case the man in the airplane, instead of a radio message, would radio directly into the mind mechanism of the men below, a dream drama in the coded symbols which would be interpreted automatically by the men below.

NoME Part One: Chapter 2: Session 806, July 30, 1977 memory events past floating future

[...] I ask the reader to always keep in mind that no matter what subject he’s discussing, or from what viewpoint, Seth’s kind of “time” underlies all that our present physical senses translate into linear, concrete experience and history. For clarification, I also keep this in mind: Seth isn’t physical, as he defines himself, and that “energy personality essence” seemingly isn’t all that focused on the passage of time — as we are — yet way back in the 14th session for January 8, 1964, he told us that time “is therefore still a reality of some kind to me.” [...]

[...] With that in mind, you can see that future lives are very difficult to explain from within your framework. [...]

Were you born once in winter,
in Europe’s ice and snow,
when villages were dark at night
and wolves roamed the towering hills?
Or dark-skinned, did your swaddling cry
pierce Egypt’s early dawn?
How many birthdays come and gone,
how many homelands, each your own?
How many loves have whispered through
the patterns of your mind?
How many sons and daughters have grown
from your womb or loins?
What voices merge with mine
to wish you happy birthday,
and what loves within your past
lay out a feast of wine and cakes?

NoME Part Three: Chapter 6: Session 846, April 4, 1979 Jonestown cult fallout reactor Mile

[...] Only lately have some begun to think in terms of mind affecting matter, and even such a possibility disturbs them profoundly, because it shatters the foundations of their philosophical stance.

[...] This applied to every avenue of life: to health matters, social disorders, economics, even to war and peace.
