"Your tooth will cease aching if your house is afire..." Frank Channing Haddock made that point in his 1910 classic, 'Power of Will'.

If emergencies can remove the pain of toothaches then properly trained minds can do the same thing.

Our minds have the ability to remove the 'negative feelings and thoughts' we encounter during day-to-day life.

In ancient times it was easy to protect intellectual property...when chisels were stolen few thieves could write in stone.

There's a long legacy of 'idea theft'. When our ancestors got beyond chisels and stones and into more-formal business, copyright became an issue. Apparently, the case law on copyright dates back to the 6th Century AD. 

Speaking of our ancestors...
