    Of course they are!!!

    KxFx(whatever) - do you mean "by DEFinition"?

    Thoughts are measurable.

    Thoughts can be counted.

    Of course the thought itself isn't tangible, but it's still a "thing".

    Noun = person, place or thing. A noun fits that category.

    Thoughts are not things. Things have physical properties such as length, width, height, weight. Thoughts do not meet that requirement. You cannot place a thought in your hands although you can get a grasp on it. A thought has a degree of mental substance and a thing has physical substance. But where on earth would we be without thoughts?

    Well thoughts are powerful enough to make you who you are and what you wanna be deep inside just like money and the bible. So I guess it can be a thing.

    have you ever heard of someone seeing "things"

    like a hallucaination? In this sense things can be an event or a concern which are thoughts!

    Things yes. Tangible no. But a thought from your head can travel to your heart (spirit). That's when you start believing it, when it gets to your heart.

    No they are very different..

    Thoughts are Thoughts (consisting of ideas, brainwaves,dreams etc. You can't see or touch these things therefore and not tangible.)


    Things are Things (consisting of material items, rings, cars & etc. those things you can see and touch.)

    thoughts are an existence of their own.

    they are powreful sources of emotion

    so to sum it all up; they migh be abstract 'things' but i dnt really believe that
