Thought and Menting.

The messenger.

With reference to this entry  and the link therein, as well as other mention of menting, ment, mentivity etc. try this:

For Thought manifesting one might best refer to the common expressions “It dawned on me.” and “It occurred to me.” in which is implied the absence of mental activity; in other words no menting or mentivity.

About Ian Gardner

Ian Gardner was born on the 20th February 1934 in Sri Lanka, then Ceylon, and christened Basil Ian Gunewardene. He was born two months prematurely and nearly died five times in his first two months. He moved to Australia in September 1969 where he changed his surname to Gardner. From childhood, he had an enquiring mind and an innate interest in the supernatural. Since 1986, nineteen years of regular periods of meditation, "searching within", reading and revelations have culminated in this free book which has been nine years in the making. Further writings followed and all his writings are available to all on the Internet free of charge. There is more information in the preface of the book. February 2020. My search - my journey, is now complete.

    I am sorry, but I cannot understand “the prediction is a catastrophic failure of mentivity”. Could you give an example?

    “A prediction that manifests without mentivity” is a neoption!

      Here is an example:

      Low monsoon clouds hang in the air. A cold, wet wind blows over the land.

      Two men, A & B, discuss what they feel.

      A: “Feels good. I love rain.”

      B: “I love rain too. But this doesn’t look good. I feel a thunderstorm coming.”

      A: What makes you feel that?

      B: I don’t know. Call it a gut feeling.

      A: How can you tell?

      B: I can’t. But I am leaving to a safer spot.

      A: Cool.

      B: Joining me?

      A: No. I’ll check-out your gut feeling. I am prepared for storms.

      B: Bye for now. See you after the storm.

      Now, whether the storm happens or not, Mr. B did not enjoy the rain for sure!

      Mr. B is a loser on two counts. One, either his mentivity failed to activate or if it was activated it failed to prepare him for the storm ( which is his prediction or thought manifestation ) and two, he did not enjoy the rain!

    Thought manifestations especially those like a prophesy or the declaration of a doomsday sayer sound like catastrophic failure of mentivity.

    The amusing part is where they call it an effort or a volitional exercise.

    • Ian Gardner says:

      Why should the prediction of a catastrophe be “. . . . a failure of mentivity”? Of course, the event predicted could be deemed to be a catastrophe. After all, is a person who states an unpleasant fact necessarily unpleasant?

      • Reader says:


        What I said is, the prediction is a catastrophic failure of mentivity.

        A prediction that manifests without mentivity is a failure of the mentivity to make a rational intervention.
