We all know that a determination to succeed can help us overcome even daunting obstacles. In this sense, I suppose, the expression “mind over matter” rings true. What I take issue with, though, is the new age/new physics notion that matter itself is but a creation of our minds.
Bullshit it is.
If that were true, then in moments when we aren’t in our right minds — LSD, PCP, PMS — there would be at least a few documented cases when rainbow unicorns actually did gallop through a guy’s basement — someone did spread wings and fly out his window — or all men did die and go to Hell.
Not all men, nor all at the same time.
