I was hoping to get your ideas on that one… Thought in general could be
considered, "the intellectual product or the organized views and principles
of a period, place, group, or individual." A la Webster. It is interesting
to look at the synonyms: idea, apprehension, conceit, concept, conception,
image, impression, intellection, notion, perception. (I am particularly and
perversely drawn to conceit myself.)

A thought is something I will to happen. I do not see it as having energy of
its own, but rather that it takes energy to create and more energy to
transmit. Does the energy transmit to the idea? Do the laws of
thermodynamics apply? I am not sure.

The older I get the more questions I have... Marie
