Seth channeled through Jane Roberts:
"Thoughts and images are formed into physical reality and become
physical fact. They are propelled chemically. A thought is energy. It
begins to produce itself physically at the moment of its conception.
Mental enzymes are connected with the pineal gland. Chemicals as you
know them, body chemicals, are physical, but they are the propellants
of this thought energy, containing within them all the codified data
necessary for translating any thought or image into physical
actuality. They cause the physical body to reproduce the inner image.
They are sparks, so to speak, initiating the transformation.
Chemicals are released through the body through the skin and pore
systems, in an invisible but definite pseudo-physical formation. The
intensity of a thought or image largely determines the immediacy of
its physical materialization. There is no object about you that you
have not created.
There is nothing about your physical image that you have not made.
The initial thought or image exists within the mental enclosure of
which I have spoken. It is not yet made physical. It appears within
the physical system, but apart from it.
Then it is sparked into physical materialization. This is the general
procedure. All thoughts or images are not completely materialized,
The intensity may be too weak. There is a struggle of sorts among
ideas for expression. The chemical reaction sparks certain electrical
charges, some within the layers of the skin. There are radiations
then through the skin to the exterior worlds containing highly
codified information and instructions.
The physical environment can be seen in many ways as direct
extensions from the physical self.
Physical formations of other images, you see, radiating outward;
these subject to continual change, as is the physical image, and all
of this reflecting the inner and basic action.
The physical environment is as much a part of you, then, basically
you see, as the physical image. Your control over it is quite
effective, for you create it as you create your fingertip. You are
not consciously aware, consciously underlined, of your control over
the physical object that may be touched by that fingertip.
The physical objects are made or constructed of the same pseudo-
material that radiates outward from the physical image, only the
higher intensity mass is different. When it builds up enough, you
recognize it as an object. At low intensity mass it is not apparent
Every nerve and fiber within the physical image has an inner purpose
that is not seen, and that serves to connect the inner self with
physical reality-in other words, that allows the inner self to create
The physical image is a part of objective reality. This should not be
overlooked, when speaking of the self. In one respect the physical
image and physical objects go flying out in all directions from the
inner core of the whole self.
There is always impetus, action, and motion; that is, of intensities
and not of space.
A thought is indeed faster than a locomotive.
Or a rocket."
