The first one is a "not equals" symbol, because the first chapter was originally called, "Not All Thoughts Are Created Equal." The second symbolizes a river, because the second chapter addresses the issue of interacting with the "river of information flowing through society with increasing swiftness." The third is a miniature version of the figure illustrating the relative capacities of the conscious and subconscious minds, as Chapter 3 is about directing the subconscious. The fourth symbol is a pair of antennae being raised because having a mastermind discussion with others somehow increases our access to a broader pool of ideas. The fifth symbolizes the synergistic loop between the two brain hemispheres when we are engaged in activities such as Mind Mapping, which mobilizes both hemispheres. The sixth symbolizes the structure of information, with the small triangle at the top representing high level structural information. The seventh is a small computer monitor, since that chapter is about learning software faster. The eighth is a bolt of lightning, representing the chapter on energy. The last symbol is a miniature version of one of the Mind Maps in that chapter.
