Yes, (to thoughts anyway, not presumptions) it's like for example curses or self fulfilling prophecies. Curses aren't in a literal or quantum sense real, but if you find the right person foolish enough to believe it and tell them they're "cursed" because of the way our universe works, and reality works. If they believe it, they will have occurances in their lives that feed that belief reinforcing it. And, the energy/thoughts they put into it will feed it like a vicious loop until the pattern is broken by someone that convinces them they are not. Thoughts are things, and we as a species are very very powerful. We're just told we are not, because then we'd be a hell of a lot harder to control. What we focus on most will manifest it's self, this is one of those "unwritten laws of the universe" kind of things. And, really was among the hardest ones for me to learn, but once I did, my perception about a lot of things in my life seriously changed. So respectively if enough people get locked into focusing on "the end of the world", they can bring it into being. But, thankfully there are enough of us out there that "know" it's utter crap and that's not what is really going to happen and it's enough to counteract the "end of the worlders". We have the power within our selves to manifest just about anything and everything we want, you start adding in more and more people the amount of energy rises and it has a much bigger effect. There was a study done recently, and they had this huge huge group of people meditate and focus on ending terrorism. The results were interesting, the global terrorism lowered I think something like 300 percent for the amount of time that group meditated.
Here's another "how the universe works" thing to think about. Time, Space and Thought are not the separate things they appear to be. Thought is the basis of all reality, and the energy of thought is very powerful. It is the combination of energy, thought and light, with the mind that influences matter and makes it solid. I hope what I am saying makes sense, I'm not always good at explaining things. And, don't mean to drag your thread so far off topic. I just tend to really follow through thoroughly when I reply to questions. And make sure I fully express or at least try to the whole thing on my mind.
Something else though that has to be understood, this energy/thought control. It's like a muscle, unused it's very weak. But, the more it's used, the stronger an individual gets and the faster it works. What ever we put into our minds, we can accomplish but it also involves the willingness to take full responsibility for it. What ever the outcome is.
