SR implies that, for example, the sun does not exist objectively, unless you can observe it. So, according to SR, during the night or when the sky is covered with clouds, you are suppose to believe that the sun does not exist, since you cannot observe it.
People who ascribe to a solipsistic based SR philosophy intrigue me. To believe you are the only one who exists, basing that soley from the perspective of your human persona is egotism in its most magnificent form. Or at least from my perspective it is. I'm not trying to claim absolute knowledge here. I'm not saying the person I quoted above ascribes to that by any means. MrBig obviously doesn't, but it was an interesting topic and I thought I would chime in anyhow. It's like they go through this nice period of childhood learning that "other people exist too" and then, in a moment of malformed insight, throw it all away and go back to ground zero. Taking that "be as a child" adage a bit far aren't we? Or maybe it is just the philosophical flavor of the week, so to speak.
That's not to say I don't ascribe to any aspect of SR, but the way I see it, leaves room for "other people" with "other thoughts" too. About 90% of SR/solispism confusion arises from semantics. 10% arises from actual disagreement in perspective.
If you are an unlimited being, it makes no sense to only have one observer/avatar. Why not an infinite number? Remember, unlimited. And furthermore, why not use all created "objects", including the trees, air, animals, minerals, and what have you as vehicles for consciousness as well? The idea of only one observer (from an ego/solipsistic perspective) is logically unsound and is projecting human limitations onto a consciousness that hypothetically has none.
Now if we are speaking outside of the ego framework, say, for example, someone who identifies with the continuum of consciousness itself, alot of statements that would otherwise sound bizarre to someone who ascribes to an objectively based perspective start to make a little more sense. This person can say things like, "You are a creation of me" and "Distance is an illusion" or "nobody has thoughts but me". Those are accurate statements, from that perspective, but to the people living in an objective framework, it is crazy talk.
If you identify with the One, nobody can have thoughts but you, because everyone IS you. When you realize the unity between everything, you understand perfectly why synchronicity/LoA happens. The choice/intent fixes the outcome of seemingly causal events, reflexively forcing the events to fulfill the choice in consciousness. Unconsciously (for most of us), we know all actions to take for every conceivable outcome to come to pass. When you utilize affirmations, intent, what have you to achieve fruition of your desires, you are simply programming yourself to follow all the necessary unconscious impulses to achieve your goals. There is only one medium for everything in existence, and it is mind. Matter is simply objectified mind -- energy that has had its free will restricted to specifics.
Our egos paint the illusory picture of separation of consciousness. It creates a boundary between conscious and so called "unconscious". The boundary isn't real, else law of attraction would never work.
So in truth we, as consciousness, are
creating everything, but not from the ego level. God is within, Self is without, and Consciousness is inbetween.
