Science provides a way of objectifying reality and relating to it in a logical, rational way. Contrary to what some may think, understanding and being well versed in scientific thought is very important to a psychic.
A scientist uses only rational, logical, conscious thought. Such thoughts are like a constructed machine with a clearly visible blueprint. The thoughts of good scientist fit well together and can be communicated clearly to others.
A psychic uses both conscious and unconscious thought. Unconscious thoughts are less visible or less defined, but have much more processing power. In a sense, a good psychic is a manager of conscious and unconscious thought and maintains a balance between the two.
Use your mind; use your thoughts in every way you can. Learn from everywhere and master yourself.
