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”
The depression brought the world to the very border-line of understanding of
the forces which are intangible and unseen. Through the ages which have passed,
man has depended too much upon his physical senses, and has limited his knowledge to physical things, which he could see, touch, weigh, and measure. 188 NAPOLEON HILL THINK AND GROW RICH We are now entering the most marvelous of all ages-an age which will teach us
something of the intangible forces of the world about us. Perhaps we shall learn,
as we pass through this age, that the “other self” is more powerful than the physical self we see when we look into a mirror.
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.
The whole of mankind has not the power to cope with, nor to control the intangible force wrapped up in the rolling waves of the oceans. Man has not the capacity
to understand the intangible force of gravity, which keeps this little earth suspended in mid-air, and keeps man from falling from it, much less the power to
control that force. Man is entirely subservient to the intangible force which comes
with a thunder storm, and he is just as helpless in the presence of the intangible
force of electricity- nay, he does not even know what electricity is, where it comes
from, or what is its purpose!
Nor is this by any means the end of man’s ignorance in connection with things
unseen and intangible. He does not understand the intangible force (and intelligence) wrapped up in the soil of the earth-the force which provides him with
every morsel of food he eats, every article of clothing he wears, every dollar he
carries in his pockets. THE DRAMATIC STORY OF THE BRAIN
Last, but not least, man, with all of his boasted culture and education, understands little or nothing of the intangible force (the greatest of all the intangibles)
of thought. He knows but little concerning the physical brain, and its vast network of intricate machinery through which the power of thought is translated into
its material equivalent, but he is now entering an age which shall yield enlightenment on the subject. Already men of science have begun to turn their attention to
the study of this stupendous thing called a brain, and, while they are still in the
kindergarten stage of their studies, they have uncovered enough knowledge to
know that the central switchboard of the human brain, the number of lines which
connect the brain cells one with another, equal the ﬁgure one, followed by ﬁft...
