Right and wrong thinking and their results
the undreamed-of possibilities which man may achieve through his own mental control
From the introduction:
Notwithstanding the immense amount of attention which has been directed in a broad general way To mind and its action, and although the constructive and creative ability of the mind through thinking Has been so long and so universally acknowledged, Yet we are just now beginning to recognize the Close and direct personal relation which thinking Bears to man.
The limits of the power of the mind Have never been clearly perceived, but recognition Of their extent continually enlarges as knowledge And understanding increase.
The differences between ignorant and enlightened, Between savage and civilized, between brute and Man, are all due to mind and its action. All the Multifarious customs and habits of mankind, Whether simple or complex, though often attributed To other causes, are, from first to last, the direct I results of thinking.
The unwritten history of the ' evolution of clothing, from its rude beginnings in The far-distant and forgotten past through all the Ages since man first inhabited the earth, though at First glance seemingly simple, yet, as a whole, is Wonderfully complex and astonishing in its particulars. Its story is only the story of the application of mind to the solution of a single one of the Vast multitude of problems connected with human Requirements.
It is true that our factories and palaces, our Temples and our homes, are built of earthly material, But mind directed their fashioning into the vast I multitude of forms, more or less beautiful, so lavishly Displayed by architecture in city and country.
The Multitudinous products of constructive art which Are scattered in lavish profusion over the whole Earth are marvellous exhibitions of what the mind has done, and these are being multiplied daily, All the mechanical triumphs of every age are Products of mental effort. Without these man would Be in the condition of the animals.
It has been said that he owes his supremacy over the lower Creatures to his ability to construct and use tools, But this also depends entirely on his superior ability To think. The steam engine is one of these tools, And the story of its creation and of the vast amount of Mental effort which has contributed to its evolution Can be written only in its larger parts because of The amount of time that has been expended upon it,
The magnitude of the work; and the minuteness and Complexity of its details. In the domain of the fine arts more than elsewhere The creations are intimately connected with mental Action and are distinctly marked as products of Mind. Music, vocal and instrumental, the single Singer or the multitude in the chorus.
