Imagination creates reality? Yes, but….

Nick Redfern’s Mysterious Universe piece, linked here (below) sparks cogitation.
Even though Nick keeps his conjecture within the realm of fantasied perception by a few who may have had too much to drink or just had a temporary mental quirk, the idea that imagination creates reality is a given.
But taking away the word “imagination” moves us into another area: Does thought create reality? Or matter?
Scouring the internet, one will find scads of new age ramblings “confirming” that thought can, indeed, create reality or matter.
But that’s foo-foo stuff.
The suggestion that thought, or mental activity, can create reality, tangibility from nothing, or things ex nihilo, prods us into an area generally limited to the domain of God.
Can thought create things? Perceptible, real things? That are touchable and actual in real philosophical and scientific terms?
The alchemists and Cabalists worked to create realities from machinations of chemistry or numbers. Yet from nothing but thought? Perhaps.
Let my premise to lie here, while I and you scour our bookshelves for works that address the issue.
And then let’s see if what we find can allow for the creation of UFO or UFO sightings and/or events, ex nihilo.
That would be something. Jose Caravaca’s Distortion Theory approaches the matter. As do the stains on Betty Hill’s dress and the marks on the Hill’s car from their alleged UFO encounter.
What about the Michalak chest burns from his Falcon Hill encounter? Or the spaceman who’s creeping up on Jim Templeton’s daughter?
More to come…
