"The Twelve Powers of Man"
from Charles Fillmore's Chapter 1
"Man expands and grows under divine evolution as an industrial plant grows. As the business expands, it is found that system is necessary. Instead of one man's being able to do the work with the assistance of a few helpers, he requires many helpers. Instead of a few helpers, he needs hundreds; and in order to promote efficiency he must have heads for the various departments of the work. Scripture symbology calls the heads of departments in man's consciousness the twelve apostles.
"Each of these twelve department heads has control of a certain function in soul or body. Each of these heads works through an aggregation of cells that physiology calls a "ganglionic center." Jesus, the I AM or central entity, has His throne in the top head, where phrenology locates spirituality. This is the mountain where He so often went to pray. The following outline gives a list of the Twelve, the faculties that they represent, and the nerve centers at which they preside.
Faith—Peter—center of brain.
Discrimination or Judgment—James, son of Zebedee—pit of stomach.
Love—John—back of heart.
Power—Philip—root of tongue.
Imagination—Bartholomew—between the eyes.
Will—Matthew—center front brain.
Order—James, son of Alphaeus—navel.
Zeal—Simon the Cananaean—back head, medulla.
Renunciation or Elimination—Thaddaeus—abdominal region.
Life Conserver—Judas—generative function."
