Book Excerpt: 
. . .sense-impressions that clamorously assail our sense-organs, but no effort of the will is needed to ignore them. We are absolutely impervious to them and unconscious of them because by the selection of our life interests we have closed the doors against them.

In either case, whether in the "fringe" of consciousness or entirely outside of consciousness, these unperceived sensations will be found to be sensory images that have no connection with the present subject of thought. They therefore attract, and we spare them, no part of our attention.

Just as each of our individual sense-organs [Pg 10] selects from the multitude of ether vibrations constantly beating upon the surface of the body only those waves to the velocity of which it is attuned, so each one of us as an integral personality selects from the stream of sensory experiences only those particular objects of attention that are in some way related to the present or habitual trend of thought.

I like Anthony Metivier writing and methods, and this is the third book of have read from him, however understand that this is actually a book from around 1914, with commentary from Anthony. I found the language of the original book very tough to read, and felt much more like a scientific white pape

Sounds great in theory, actually horrible in practice- none of those tricks work on kids.

Good Book For Understanding The Mind-Memory Concept, The Capability Of Imagination, And How To Use The Memory Faculty In An Intelligent Manner.

Honestly, I was not terribly impressed. This was a fairly dated text with annotation that while well written didn't feel as though they added much. It was cheap at least and if you aren't already familiar with the ideas expressed, it might be of some use.
