The Lost Symbol explores the way in which science and faith can come together to mean the same things, but go about it in two completely different ways. The Masonic order is thecentral plot point in this book, and Brown uses the order, its mysteries, and its rituals to great effect.

Noetic science is a new part of the science that studies the effect of the human mind in the physical matter.

Also another experiment that is realized is the one of which according to a snowflake or a congealed ice structure, with positive thoughts can be createdan image or a new structure, I do not know, is a rare, but brilliant thing.
I won’t tell you the general story, because if I do it know you won’t read the book and I want you to read it, so you...
