The Science of Mind
The book, The Science of Mind, is structured with a multiple chapters each centred with lessons
from observation. The writer welcomes the reader to put his suggestions to the test and be witness to
personal observations. Given the length of the book and paper length limitations, a great deal of the
writer's chain of thought and suggestions maybe misrepresented.
Lesson 1: Instinctive Man and Nature:
 The writer, in this section attempts to trace man's history back to the "dim past" where a self-
conscious man had not yet evolved and was only Instinctive.
 Using an analogy of steam "evolving" from water and water being formed from steam to
explain, he convincingly states that if man has also evolved to an intelligent being, then he must
also have unfolded/ evolved from a similar material/ entity - Intelligence; with all its attributes;
self-choice, free will and of course creative abilities.
 This Intelligence, he says, still operates in and out of man carrying out functions of the body,
guiding man silently towards discoveries that seem to appear out of nowhere; fire, electricity
and many other discoveries and inventions alike. As stated in the Bible; "created in God's image"
man like "God/ Good" is evolving to his godlike abilities.
Lesson 2: The Great Discovery
 Following the earlier set time line, Ernest Holmes then unveils the greatest discovery made by
then instinctive man - His mind. Man could then identify himself using the biblical words; "I AM"
and could therefore think and thus make choices, plan and execute for his needs free of others.
 Man then evolved from instinctive to self-conscious and had become an individual. From that
day on he had to work in conscious union with nature and her forces but not alone.

Lesson 3: Great Question Why and the Greatest Discovery - Mind
 Being able to think of options then created in him a desire for reason. And thus giving birth to
questioning "Why" things happen the way they do. Ernest introduces the Instinctive and
thinking Man.
 Writer poses a proposal that no brain thinks at all. He questions why a brain of a dead man even
hooked up to a pulse cannot create thoughts. No one sees the thinker. One only points at the
physical brain and body of the thinker, talks of a body/world without the thinker. There would
be no movement of the body. It would have no power to act.
 Studying thoughts man realizes they were stored and returned to him as Memory. This
conclusion led him to discover that his memory mind is the sculptor of the body & that through
continuous suggestion, he could then willingly manipulate he's own memory to have it sculpt
he's body to serve a specific challenging purpose
 New basis of thought emerged with this knowledge and man begun to reinvent himself as the
perfect intelligence he evolved from. Using his new discoveries that suggestions become
memory man could effect change in his...
