our thoughts determine our behaviour or actions. if we are having good thoughts we will definitely act nicely but if we are having bad thoughts then we will surely try to cover up our behaviour and try to fake a smile but somehow that behaviour would surely show reflection of fakeness or irritation and people will figure out we are faking it or something is bothering us. If you are having thoughts about killing someone and that means that u dont like that person and u dont wanna be with that person, if you met that person u will try to be nice since u dont wanna show that person but if that person is not leaving u alone and u are seeing that person everyday then surely your behaviour would show that u dont like that person.

Ah, so if I think of killing someone, depending on how I handle it, I will probably act differently? Like, I might become uncomfortable around that person -- or I may (may being the keyword here) actually kill them? But what if I am strict with my behavior? What if I don't act differently -- at all? Wouldn't the reaction just be more thoughts?

Always? If I think of killing someone, will it result in the action of me doing so?

While you are right that this is based on a HUGE misunderstanding of Newton's laws and their meaning, it is NOT the thirld law of thermodynamics which was discovered much late (20th century, a long time after Newton's death) but it is the third law of MOTION. Newton discovered the three laws of motion also known as Newton's laws.

I don't agree that there are no emotional strings attached to this thought. Every human thought by nature has emotions attached to it. In your example the emotions are hidden but they are still there and they can be for instance: hope, fear, anxiety, etc...

This is based on a misunderstanding of Newtons 3rd law of thermodynamics since it has nothing to do with the movement of objects.

An action is an act of doing something. Now taking it into account, wouldn't a thought be an act of thinking?

A thought by definition is not an action.

There's a whole book about this called "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill. One of the greatest books ever written, it will change your life.

What about our thoughts that aren't attached to emotions? Let's say for example, the world is more than what we think it is. This thought has no strings to emotion it is just only a thought. What is the reaction to this thought? Does this single thought affect the external world outside of our heads or does it only affect us internally in our own minds.

Any action could be taken. It could be limited to just emotion or it could be as radical as terrorism. It just depends on how you feel about it and how willing you are to take action.
