I was struck by Deepak Chopra's first book "Quantum Healing" because he realized that 'mind' interacts with material cells of the body through the quantum potential. He also realized that we continuously create the body (including it's ailments) ... much like Seth describes here.
“Do not think of the mind as a purely mental entity, and of the body as a purely physical one. Instead, think of both mind and body as continuing, interweaving processes that are mental and physical at once. Your thoughts actually are quite as physical as your body is, and your body is quite as nonphysical as it seems to you your thoughts are. You are actually a vital force, existing as a part of your environment, and yet apart from your environment at the same time.
“It is obvious that you impress a room with your characteristics as you furnish it, but you also mark what seems to be empty space in the same fashion – that is, you turn empty space into the living matter of your body without ever realizing that you do so.”
