We’re in a feedback loop
It appears we are in a feedback loop that consist of collectively thinking things and then seeing them manifest in the material world. This is exacerbated by the fact we’re trained as children NOT to believe what we imagine is real and disconnecting from our natural nature related to this. Following that,indeed, what we watch on TV or allow our minds to consume as “reality” will end up making that more real and bring more of that into the material realm. We must feed better, hopeful, happy information into our heads so we can create something different, something better for everyone and every critter here on Earth. We can do it.
