The subjective mind is a distinct entity. It occupies the whole human body,
and, when not opposed in any way, it has absolute control over all the
functions, conditions and sensations of the body. While the objective mind
has control over all of our voluntary functions and motions, the subjective
mind controls all of the silent, involuntary and vegetative functions.
Nutrition, waste, all secretions and excretions, the action of the heart in the
circulation of the blood, the lungs in respiration or breathing, and all cell life,
cell changes and development, are positively under the complete control of
the subjective mind. This was the only mind animals had before the
evolution of a brain; and it could not, nor can it yet, reason inductively, but
its power of deductive reasoning is perfect. And more, it can see without the
use of physical eyes. It perceives by intuition. It has the power to
communicate with others without the aid of ordinary physical means.
It can read the thoughts of others. It receives intelligence and transmits it to people
at a distance. Distance offers no resistance against the successful missions of
the subjective mind. We call this the "soul mind." It is the living soul.
