This is my first post in the T&GR Mastermind. So, from the beginning, it is important to establish that as a Born Again Christian, I am giving God the glory, for EVERYTHING! It is not I, but rather God working through me that acheives anything. Through all the good books I have read on self develpment, including this one there is one point that always stands out; that all the information in these books are covered somewhere, somehow in God's word (the Bible). Now, the terminology may be different and the presentation a bit different, but none the less, it's there.
I believe that when Hill is talking about "other self", he is eluding to the Holy Spirit within us and how it is "more powerful than the physical self..." As he talks about that "sometimes men speak lightly of the intangibles- the things which they cannot perceive through any of their five senses, and when we hear them, it should remind us that all of us are controlled by forces which are unseen and intangible...", I believe that these forces are either of God or OF the world. These are the greatest forces, and are intangible. God created me with a subconsious, creative imagination and the power of auto-suggestion. He also created me with free will. So, I get to choose to use them for good. I am a siritual being, having a human experience, in the world but not OF the world!
I believe that no matter how brilliant scientists are, or how many ways they find to study the brain and all it's functions, they will never figure out all the intricacies. Reason being, is that God created it with such perfection and detail, it is simply perfection at the highest degree. As Dr. Herrick states; "that astronomical figures dealing with hundreds of millions of light years, become insignificant by comparison."
