How are new thoughts created? Could you demonstrate the creation of new thougths?

Question by The Knowledge Server: How are new thoughts created? Could you demonstrate the creation of new thougths?
People, especially the academic professionals, claim that they create new thoughts. Could anyone explain me:
How are new thoughts created?
Could you demonstrate the mechanism of creating new thoughts? I am desperately search for the mechanism of creating new thoughts – so that I can apply and become great thinker like the rest of my fellows. I could not find this in any book or journal. Could you help me?

Every new thought begins with a question. That is, after all a quest to find an answer.

You have asked a question about how new thoughts are created, yet strangely this had to be a new thought at some point since you are asking it now and not long before.

Therefore, you have created a new thought.

The mechanism is a question. Now you have an answer. The answer begets new questions, and the inquiry moves forward to a new level.

What do you think? Answer below!


  1. When you are with many people who are alike and seeking great things, great thoughts happen. I have several pieces coming out in some Journals this fall and it’s because of a great graduate program I have been a part of. I like teaching with comics and cartoons. There are many who do not consider this real reading. I can teach you how they are not only good reading but allow for provacative thinking.

  2. I think what it comes down to is a new way of asking the same question. For example what ice cream do you like. Their are a million ways of asking that question. I believe that is the new thought a way of looking and asking about a problem. For example you could ask which tastes best, color, on a cone, soft, hard with toppings.

  3. new thoughts? how are regular thoughts created?
    how can you become a great thinker, how about a thinker period?
    most people spend they’re complete life not thinking only reacting!
    lastly what is the subject matter of these great thoughts?
    to better mankind, what is life about? science?
    what are thoughts? are you your thoughts?
    read about Albert Einstein, and his thought experiments…..

  4. While you personally may intuitively delineate “thought,” it may be useful to make a more explicit and general definition.

    A “thought” is a formation of human (awareness) energy about some “thing.”

    This formation of energy is both process and product. It arises per sensible and pre-sensible energy movement, i.e., in the pre-conscious and conscious.

    There are more levels to development of “thought” than one might think….

    E.g., our outer waking consciousness is the arena for what many people term “thinking.” In point of experimental fact, such “thinking” is often pre-formed several seconds before, in pre-conscious processes; kindly see April, 2008 “Nature Neuroscience,”
    (There are other examples of this, including the pre-conscious thinking juvenile ferrets were observed to undergo when shown “The Matrix.”)

    There are additional levels and sources of pre-conscious energy in-forming mentation: “Psychoenergetic Science,” Dr. William A. Tiller, has a good model re some types of intentionality movement of biofield energy into various quantum systems; his model is similar to the SU(2) quantum model, and is very well demonstrated in his laboratory work.

    High gamma wave mentation, observed in very creative and insightful mentation, and also measured by Harvard Medical school researchers in Tibetan insight (vipassana) practitioners (one site teaching same is ), is a distinctly separate category from lower beta wave mentation, which latter is the typical mode for “scientistic” mentation; hence, a significant category error to use exclusively the latter to understand and describe the former.

    More advanced seers, such as Mark Prophet (“The Path of the Higher Self”) indicate and even teach that superconscious awareness–Mind as awareness of Self–is obtainable.

    In this “Swedenborgian” type of awareness, man’s capacity to symbolize indicates Form-Energy flow (at various levels), which in turn is conditioned and feedforwarded by e.g. light, seeing (“I see” = “I under-stand,” aka Plato’s “hypo-thesis”).

    This Energy–which is perceived as “Light” in the visible spectrum–is held by cups or symbols, aka “Words.” When the soulfield bijection with Truth qua Real Form, aka “Living Light”/”I Am the Light of the world” is as Plotinus’ One Mind Soul-individuation, said “Mind which was also in Christ Jesus” in-Forms–provides Light-Energy stepwise geometrization coalescences, up and down the Jacobean ladder of divine ascent (“Angels” or “angles” of God, Energy), and such Forms of Living Light are Oneness-individuations, “new thoughts,” and/or “thinking God’s Thoughts after Him,” as Einstein phrased it.

    You may also find Ruth Nanda Anshen’s “Biography of an Idea,” “Expecting Adam,” Martha Beck, O. M. Aivanhov’s “Light Is a Living Spirit,” Elizabeth Mayer’s “Extraordinary Knowing,” Yogananda’s “Autobiography of a Yogi,” Mary Baker Eddy’s “Science and Health,” and Lizelle Reymond’s “To Live Within” valuable.

    It is worth noting that Sri Aurobindo’s superconscious work proceded from Above to the human.

  5. For me the seed for thought comes from intelligence and awareness that generate analysis or thought.

    For example a simple floor robot that can clean a floor has sensors that make it go back and forth as if it were thinking about what move to make. But a computer like super blue that can play chess has millions of games in it’s memory to make an analytical move that is the best for it’s position and makes it weak for its opponent.

    If you are talking about man then new thought is merely looking at long standing problems with “fresh” young eyes based on the most recent and past knowledge of people in the past. But still there are independent thinkers who have no such knowledge yet they must in their own way come up with a new thought to remedy the problem. This is where past experience or perhaps even unrelated resources of information can solve a problem or generate new thought.

    New thought is taking an old problem and finding a new solution to it that came from an unexpected source. A happy accident.

  6. I can not cure a person of brain damage. There are words that have for their definition descriptions containing no words for sensible things. These words are abstract words and represent concepts. There are abstract adjectives, there are abstract nouns and there are abstract verbs. Descriptions using abstract words form higher order cognition process’s. Process’s change things, systems move things. You want both if you want new thoughts created.

  7. New thoughts are not new, they are just explorable… waiting to be expressed in a deplorable outcome… mind set is control for excellence and results are the main theme. And the best results usually came from a free thought with a basis from reality for the finality acceptance of the creation. Humanism is usually the common ground for such flow of thoughts.
