I was sitting around at one of my job sites talking to a couple guys who work for me about how the job was going and how long it was going to take
them to finish th work. We talked for a few more minutes then I let them get back to lunch and started to head to another job site to make sure
everything was going to plan.
As I was walking out the door when the homeowner, an older woman that reminded me of the Oracle or Matrix fame, stopped me - presumably to ask a few
questions about her floor.
She said "I heard you in there talking and when you asked how long the work was going to last you reminded me of what my son used to talk about".
Her son passed away a few years ago and I didn't find out until the end of our conversation that he was a multiple degree proffessor who worked at
ORNL - Oak Ridge National Laboratories - Oak Ridge, Tennessee right outside Knoxville, TN
She said that when someone would ask her son when he woul be done with his work he would always go into a mood and talk about the literal power of
Being that I am a naturally curious person, especially when it comes to mysterious subject and the fact that talking to this lady might create more
work for me through referrals, I asked her what she meant.
She said that her son had the idea that there are thought s that people have that are truly powerful, explaining that some thoughts were almost
magical. Again I acted interested, which wasn't hard at this point because I have never heard of this line of thinking before - and likely never
again, so she would continue.
She said that her son believed that if enough people would think of a certain thing it would happen with certainty and quickness. She said that this
is were prayer gets it's power and why it is utilized universally, not because of religion but because it is built in to our motherboard (she didn't
put it that way, but that is what she meant)
She asked if I had ever known a horrible person, a person that most people who encountered them thought ill of them. Then she asked if I had ever
heard of bad things happening to them and, like most of us, I had. On the other hand she said that there are good things that happen to people who
are generall upbeat and good at heart. Though she made it clear that good and bad happen to everyone, it is how you respond and treat the enviroment
your in that the events in your life are determined by.
She continued to tell me about this and what became a tradition in their family. Every week thy would have something that they desired. They would
all think about this and it would come to pass.
It sounded wierd, but she said it never failed She said after her son had graduated from UTK (Univ. Tenn.-Knoxville) and entered the workforce that
his attitude toward the weekly thought bombs ( again, my wording not hers) changed.
He said that he had been creeped out by some of the things that they tried when they came true. He studied prayer and eventually obtained a degree in
She said that after he had worked for ORNL for about 8 years his demeanor about regular things changed. He would hear someone say "How long is that
going to take?", and respond with "depends on what you think" Most people would think he was just being passive, but really he was telling them
how to answer their own questions.
She went on to say that, about a year before his death, he told her he believed that there was a particular understanding of knowledge that no one had
ever thought (never as in: no one had EVER thought of it"
He told her that he thought that this our purpose in life. He told her that we are essentially here to achieve the highest level of understanding of
everything - in unisen with the natural universe.
According to her son this was a very dangerous subject, if ever anyone got close to the understanding he believed that something would happen on a
scale of everything.
He thought that if any individual ever obtained this line of thinking and understanding that the Unviverse and everything in it would cease to exist,
immediately. She said he was very troubled by this because he had seen the power of subjective thinking in reality.
What troubled him the most is the questionif the niverse would end for the individual or for everything in the universe, including the universe.
He became paranoid that the world - and universe - would end at any moment. He worried himself that someone was getting close to the "Master
Thought". She said he never told her where everything in the universe would go if this ever happened.
Could this be true?
