This article admittedly may never be much larger than a stub. It references a phrase once widely recognized and used in popular culture. It would have been a proper redirect to extra-sensory perception, or to psychokinesis, or to responsibility assumption. However, because there is no way to redirect to all three, it was instead created as a stub article textually pointing to all three. --Gary D 06:46, 28 Jul 2004 (UTC)
Please note that original research and speculation, or indeed your own metaphysical opinions, are not the right content for Wikipedia. DJ Clayworth 14:52, 10 Mar 2005 (UTC)
- IT is a hypothesis that the mind controls you NOT matter. If you 'do' books here on wikipedia, there is a book by Heather McQuillan called Mind Over Matter. 220.127.116.11 03:55, 23 August 2006 (UTC)
I used some of my material, with some revisions, from the former deleted Wikipedia article "Cultural references to psychokinesis and telekinesis" to provide the origin for the phrase. So if anyone should claim that it was copied from another website, no, it's my writing that originated on Wikipedia. 5Q5 (talk) 18:03, 2 October 2009 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure "mens agitat molem" means "the mind drives the mass", not "the mind is driven by the mass". It also makes much more sense this way, since in the text it is given as an early variation of the "mind over matter" proverb.

Re: "Also, "self-help" personalities such as Tony Robbins claim that, through the power of concentration and "positive thinking", people can walk on hot coals without getting burned." Do we have evidence that Tony Robbins has actually made this claim? The refutation of the claim is cited but not the claim itself. How do I add "citation needed" to the actual content?

The Outer Limits - Mind Over Matter
There is The Outer Limits episode called Mind Over Matter, should it be somewhere referenced to (like in 'see also') https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mind_over_Matter_(The_Outer_Limits)? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kenorb (talk • contribs) 17:09, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
