I am inclined to agree with you. There has to be some bidirectional cause and effect connection between thinking about something, and it existing.
Otherwise, what is praying all about? I think it is pretty foolish to write it off as nonsense, as seems popular in science lately.
There is so much circumstantial evidence. There appears many branches of science working around this idea. Some are being taken more seriously, like Biocentrism, than others like Morphic resonance, who dare to question established narratives, but all are pursuing basically the same concepts from different angles.
I trust soon we will know!
