It seems our thoughts and the physical universe can be seamlessly linked by the following 'building blocks':
Energy>Elementary Particles>Atoms>Organic Molecules>Amino Acids>Neurotrasnmitters>Thoughts
Energy - The most fundamental 'substance' constituting all physical things. It flows and is present in the space all around us.
Elementary Particles - A position in space where energy has 'condensed' to such a degree that it is considered a discrete entity from any surrounding energy.
Atom - A nucleus containing composite particles consisting of elementary particles, which is surrounded by electrically charged elementary particles.
Organic Molecule - A combination of different compounded atoms which incorporates carbon-hydrogen bonds.
Amino Acid - An organic molecule containing at least one acid and one base atom group which can react together in water within all living organisms to form proteins and chemical catalysts, or are used to synthesize neurotransmitters.
Neurotransmitter - A chemical messenger most often composed of amino acids, used by neurons to communicate with other neurons; resulting in the production of thoughts in the brain.
Thoughts - The aggregate result of neurotransmitters being transmitted from one cell to another within one's nervous system.
It appears that most superstitious and mystical traditions intercept links between these building blocks in order to obtain faith in their followers, when really there is science available to provide alternative, more rational evidence .
