On the physical plane, thoughts are just thoughts.
On the psychic planes, thoughts are things
They have a life and a reality of their own.
They can continue to exist even independently of the person who thought them.
They go out in the world and influence their environment
They are dynmaic, and seek material expression and actualisation.
They try to actualise in the physical, no matter how weakly (or some cases strongly) the circumstances corresponding to their configoration
