noun: control, or the right to rule over something

"The corner-stone of this philosophy is one power, one law; order and method reigning throughout creation; spirit controlling matter, as the Divine order and law of creation that the spiritual should govern the material - that the whole realm of matter should be under the dominion of the world of spirit." [More Science]

Q: Where did the statement in the Bible come from that man had been given dominion[1] over all things? Was that a mistake or not accurate?

A: "That is, in fact, a misperception. The meaning that was attempted to be communicated was that man could only experience those things which he allowed to exist within his thought processes. And within that realm, he would in no way be a victim to any circumstance that he subsequently did experience."

Q: So we have dominion over our thoughts.

A: "Precisely." Dialogue on Awakening, page 110

[1] "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth." Genesis 1:25-27
