Religious believers and practitioners of the cultural amoeba of spirituality tell us that our thoughts have the power to directly transform physical reality, that what we do with our minds can affect what happens in the outside world. They say that if we meditate, or pray, or just even concentrate our thoughts, about something we want, we’re more likely to get that.
