If mind is matter, which it is, then an idea is a specific form of matter. Quimby used the phrase "idea matter" quite often and Keely used the phrase "substance of ideation" indicating they both held this concept. I'm sure Geller and Sai Baba would both concur with this concept. Mind Matter or Idea Matter are of the etheric, interetheric and compound interetheric subdivisions. [See Inert Gas, Subdivision, Etheric Elements]
Helmholtz falls into a mistake when he says- "The system of scales and modes, and all the network of harmony founded on them, do not seem to rest on any immutable laws of Nature, but are due to the aesthetical principle which is constantly subject to change, according to the progressive development of taste." It is true, indeed, that the ear is the last judge; but the ear is to judge something which it does not create, but simply judges. Nature is the maker of music in its scales and modes. The styles of composition may vary with successive generations, and in the different nations of men; but the scientific basis of music is another thing. It is a thing, belonging to the aesthetic element of our being and our environment; it is under the idea of the beautiful, rather than the idea of the useful or the just; but all these various aspects of our relation to creation have their laws which underlie whatever changes may be fashionable at any period in our practice. If the clang-farbe of a musical tone, that is, its quality or timbre, depends on the number and comparative strength of the partial tones or harmonics of which it is composed, and this is considered to be the great discovery of Helmholtz, it cannot be that the scales and modes are at the caprice of the fickle and varied taste of times and individuals, for these partials are under Nature's mathematical usages, and quite beyond any taste for man's to change. It is these very partials or harmonics brought fully into view as a system, and they lead us back and back till they have brought us to the great all-prevading law of gravitation; it is these very partials, which clothe as an audible halo every musical sound, which constitute the musical system of sounds.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
“The mind, once stretched by a new idea, never returns to its original dimensions.” - [Ralph Waldo Emerson]
"The best definition that ever may be given of fourth-dimensional is an idea! Where will it project? Anywhere! Where does it arise from? Who Knows! Where will it end? Who can tell? It is all inclusive! It has both length, breadth, height, depth - is without beginning and is without ending." [Cayce (364-10)]
"The abilities in the psychic forces.... psychic meaning, then of the mental and the Soul - doesn't necessarily mean the body, until it's enabled to be brought into being in whatever form it may make its manifestation - which may never be in a material world, or take form in a three-dimensional plane as the earth is; it may remain in a fourth-dimensional - which is an idea!" [Cayce (364-10)]
"That as would be manifested must first be in spirit, then in mind, then in material activity. For, this is the evolution of the earth, the evolution of things, the evolution of ideas and of ideals." [Cayce (3132-1)]
"All idea is (as) one idea in the light of the sun. The light of the sun is never divided into its many seeming separate ideas until it is electrically extended from the sun and those extensions electrically echoed back to it." Russell, The Secret of Light, page 52
"Records of Motion are seeds for repetition of motion. In the seed is desire for manifesting imaged forms of idea. All forms are wave forms. All wave forms unfold from seed records of those wave forms." [Russell, The Secret of Light, page 137]
"To polarize means to divide stillness into opposing pulsing extensions. It is like extending a lever from a fixed fulcrum and setting it in motion to express the idea which is in the still fulcrum." [Russell, The Secret of Light, page 209]
"The CREATED universe of matter is the result of concentration of Mind upon the idea of form and then the generation of power by diverting low potential into centripetal vortices in order to hold the idea of Mind into the appearance of form until form disappears through mental decentration" [Figure 12.11 - Russells Locked Potential Full Ten Octave Gamut]
"Idea has no extension, but idea, divided by imagining, extends into an imaged infinity, and repeats its divisions like unto the infinity which the kaleidoscope repeats, and multiplies its imaginings as it repeats." [Atomic Suicide, page 110]
"In your imagination look carefully upon the large cinema picture and realize that there is one prime essential to its understanding that is not photographed there. That one essential is the IDEA of the picture. The IDEA is not photographed. It is not there at all. You cannot see it, no matter how carefully you look - yet you KNOW it as well as though you could see it. Idea is never created. Its body is alone created. Idea has no dimension. It is only the projected image of Idea, which has dimension. Idea is never created. It is but simulated. [Atomic Suicide, page 241]
"Step No. 2. The cylindrical coil made for the creation of an electric field does not, in any respect, conform with the electric current, which divides the stillness of cathodes into moving pairs, for the purpose of multiplying the motion of those moving pairs to create the heat and compression necessary to simulate the IDEA, which concentrated electric Mind-thinking desires to give objective expression to." [Atomic Suicide, page 273]
"Records of Motion are seeds for repetition of motion. In the seed is desire for manifesting imaged forms of idea. All forms are wave forms. All wave forms unfold from seed records of those wave forms." Russell, The Secret of Light], page 137
"Sex is the creative principle. It is dual desire force in Mind for expressing its One Idea. Without a division of the one unconditional Light into two seemingly conditioned lights, Creation could not be." Russell, The Secret of Light, page 119
"When we stop thinking, whether asleep or awake, we do not stop KNOWING, nor do we cease being consciously aware of our Being. We but cease to set our knowledge in motion to express idea through the pulsations of thinking." Russell, The Secret of Light, page 71
God's perpetually creating electric wave universe of two moving lights is dynamic. It forever moves. The two moving lights are projected through each other from the static One to create the illusion of the idea they but manifest. The illusion which manifests the idea of Creation through seeming motion is not the idea which it seemingly manifests.
"Creation might be likened to the tapestry weaver who KNOWS the one idea as a whole, then THINKS it into parts, then RECORDS those parts by interweaving their spectrum colors into the many forms which, together, manifest the whole idea." Russell, The Secret of Light
They are the first manifestations of the appearance of individual existence.
They are the beginning of the appearance of separate existence.
They are the beginning of the appearance of opposites.
They are light: and so is man and the mountain.
They continue themselves as idea by transforming other energy into the idea of themselves.
Just as the sun continues the idea of itself by transforming other energy into the idea of itself, and just as the sun radiates its energy to continue the idea of this planet by radiation of its energy for absorption by this planet, so does one light unit give to another and take away energy from another.
"This is the great law of evolving idea.
Idea is evolutionary and continuous; therefore is the recording of idea also continuous.
iIea is constantly building itself up in all forming systems.
This is integration.
This is what man calls growth. It is life.
Idea is constantly tearing itself apart.
This is disintegration.
This is what man calls fading. It is death.
Integration is growth.
Fading is growth.
