I just kind of thought of this last night and it seems to me to be illogical but i can't tell why.
Best Answer - Chosen by Asker: The principle involved here is called the primacy of consciousness; that thoughts can change reality. The king of these ideas is that a 'supreme consciousness' created the universe etc. Descartes agrees with 'I think, therefore I am.' Religions reinforce it with the notion that praying will help you. The mystic sooth-sayers mumble over tarot cards, or the stars. The 'naturalists' believe in the power of instinct or intuition... the list goes on.
Existence exists. Regardless of whether a man is there to hear it a tree falling in the forest does make a sound. It is monumentally conceited to believe that a mere thought can change anything; thinking about the consequences of an action and changing your behaviour to accommodate them is another matter entirely.
