Unformatted text preview: rare thoughts which come from-no man knows where! No satisfactory
substitute for Nature’s stimulants has ever been found.
It is a fact well known to psychologists that there is a very close relationship between sex desires and spiritual urges-a fact which accounts for the peculiar behavior of people who participate in the orgies known as religious “revivals,” common among the primitive types.
The world is ruled, and the destiny of civilization is established, by the human
emotions. People are inﬂuenced in their actions, not by reason so much as by
“feelings.” The creative faculty of the mind is set into action entirely by emotions,
and not by cold reason. The most powerful of all human emotions is that of sex.
There are other mind stimulants, some of which have been listed, but no one of
them, nor all of them combined, can equal the driving power of sex.
A mind stimulant is any inﬂuence which will either temporarily, or permanently,

4. The vibrations of thought. Highly sexed people mix the emotion of sex with
their thoughts, or may do so at will, and in that way, may inﬂuence those around
