Many people throughout the ages have believed in the existence of infinite intelligence, although they might have used different words to describe it. They feel that their best achievements have more to do with outside forces than their own undoubted ability. If this sounds somewhat fanciful, and it did to me, then it is worth considering just a few names on this list.
In alphabetical order they include Buddha, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, Carl Jung, James Maxwell, Isaac Newton, Wolfgang Pauli, George Bernard Shaw, most philosophers, and all the religions that I have some knowledge about. In other words we would be unwise to discount the wisdom of these sources. I have pasted some of their notable quotes at the foot of this post.
If we can accept at least the possibility of the existence of infinite intelligence, then where does it come from? The simple answer is that nobody knows, although there is no shortage of opinions. I do not know either, but the only possible sources that I can think of are that this intelligence comes from deep inside us, or it comes from an outside source that we can tap into.
The big question is “wherever it comes from how can we use it?” If we believe it comes from inside us then it is most likely to be within our brain. The chances are that it has been hardwired through millions of years of evolution and is hidden deep within the reptile brain. This presents us with a problem, because now more than ever before, the vague instincts and intuition from this deep source find it harder to break down the barriers which the conscious mind, particularly the ego, have erected to block them.
If however universal intelligence comes from outside, then all we have to do is know it is there working 24/7 in our best interests, and leave it at that. However, it does take a huge leap of faith, so once more the ego will do its best to interfere.
So irrespective of where this intelligence comes from the ego is blocking its effect. Ego is no amigo.
The final and most important question is “how can I silence the ego so that I can tap into this intelligence?” It is not an easy task, and this is the challenge that I face with almost every client I work with. The tools I have at my disposal include energy, hypnosis, and what I describe as the reptile relaxation reflex. I have written and made videos about these subjects so I suggest you check them out.

We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.
Nature is the source of all true knowledge. She has her own logic, her own laws, she has no effect without cause nor inventions without necessity.
“I know this world is ruled by infinite intelligence. Everything that surrounds us- everything that exists – proves that there are infinite laws behind it. There can be no denying this fact. It is mathematical in its precision.”
If you try to penetrate the secrets of nature, you will find that there remains something subtle, intangible and inexplicable. Veneration for this force, which is beyond anything we can comprehend, is my religion.
“It is only through the psyche that we can establish that God acts upon us, but we are unable to distinguish whether these actions emanate from God or from the unconscious. Both are border-line concepts for transcendental contents.
Synchronicity is an ever present reality for those who have eyes to see.
“Happy is the man who can recognise in the work of today a connected portion of the work of life and an embodiment of the work of Eternity. The foundations of his confidence are unchangeable, for he has been made a partaker of Infinity.”
“This most beautiful system of the sun, planets, and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent Being”
Both of us [seem] to agree that the future of Jung’s ideas is not with [psycho-] therapy… but with a unitarian, holistic concept of nature and the position of man in it.
This is the true joy in life; the being used for a purpose recognised by yourself as a mighty one.
