Mental Body is related to imagination, memory, and dreaming. Transformation of dreaming happens into vision. This layer is connected to the vibration level of thoughts and mental processes, ego and personal power. It is the vibratory rate through which one thinks and reasons out. When one operates in lower levels of the mental body, ones opinions and attitudes may be heavily influenced by feelings, giving rise to a "desire mind", products of which include preconceptions, opinions and other forms of emotionally seasoned thinking. Operating at the superior levels of the mental body, one is capable of non-figurative thinking, creativity, logical analysis, mathematics and philosophy
