While Dr. Joseph Banks Rhine studied for his Masters in Botany at the University of Chicago, he and his wife Louisa went to an Arthur Conan Doyle seminar where he presented to the audience “communication with the deceased.” Him and Louisa left impressed!

He taught for a year at Boyce Thompson Institute of Botany in Yonkers, New York, and that seems to be the end of botany for him. After his year at Boyce, he enrolled in the Psychology Department at Harvard University to study under Professor William McDougall. McDougall then moves to Raleigh, North Carolina to teach at Duke, so Rhine follows and together they develop Parapsychology. Parapsychology actually comes from the German language so it’s actually parapsychologie; para – beyond ordinary (fringe); psychologie – the phenomenas’ out of the subconscious and conscious mind.

Test subjects such as Adam Linzmayer and Hubert Pearce were heralded and scorned right with Dr. Rhine in the scientific community, media, and general public. Zener Card testing, Psychokinesis testing; papers written such as: “ Extra-Sensory Perception”, “Extra-Sensory Perception After 60 Years”; all were torn down as quackery or hailed as stupendous!

Napoleon Hill’s belief of the brain and what it reveals and conceals is by these principles:

“Along with the important factors of the subconscious mind, and the faculty of the Creative Imagination, which constitute the sending and receiving sets of your mental broadcasting machinery, consider now the principle of autosuggestion, which is the medium by which you may put into operation your “broadcasting” station. Through the instructions described in the chapter on autosuggestion, you were definitely informed of the method by which DESIRE may be transmuted into its monetary equivalent. Operation of your mental “broadcasting” station is a comparatively simple procedure. You have but three principles to bear in mind, and to apply, when you wish to use your broadcasting station—the SUBCONSCIOUS MIND, CREATIVE IMAGINATION, and AUTO-SUGGESTION. The stimuli through which you put these three principles into action have been described—the procedure begins with DESIRE. THE GREATEST FORCES ARE “INTANGIBLE”

Him and Doctors’ Elmer Gates and Alexander Bell sat at a table, presented a problem, and then worked together using their own 3 segments within their brains: the subconscious mind, creative imagination and auto suggestion to mastermind in resolving the problem by their combined vibrations acting like satellites pinging signals back and forth between each. Meditating (mostly done without divine guidance, except for Buddhism) can act as a stimuli to vibrate the 3 segments collectively to create a peace within from feeling troubled right up to having an epiphany to solve a problem. Praying can do the same because with those focused on God first and believing everything manifests out of God’s bounties decreed for us know at some time either in the same minute or into the future, know that their minds and heart virtues must stay faithful in practice to help themselves deeply into their souls to be guided correctly, so the result leaves them in ease! As God said: “after hardship comes ease”.


Take notes folks, we’ve been schooled:)
