I haven't seen that level of certainty expressed by any of the most expert manifesters on this forum.
In addition, it doesn't explain how you say that everything in our life exists because we know it is, yet many times we find out something wasn't at all how we knew it was. It might not be on the level of the chair I'm sitting on disappearing, but sometimes it's very mind-bendy when something you knew was real turns out not to be real. Or vice versa.
Something appearing or disappearing right in front of your eyes would probably make you lose your mind. This is why things seem to always be the same way. If you woke up one morning and your bathtub had disappeared or changed places or the brick of your house had changed colors, your mind would not be able to accept this. But, learning that William Shakespeare was not the real author of his plays will not drive you mad or learning that the US government was behind 9/11 can be understood even if it's hard to accept (I'm just giving examples and not necessarily agreeing or disagreeing with these theories).
My point is, the physical world only appears to be what it is because the idea that it is this way is imbedded deep within your consciousness. It would be too shocking for you to see the truth right now. So, if the material world is an illusion and exists because you are aware of it, then you can manifest anything you want by realizing that everything you see around you comes from your own conscious awareness. If you become consciously aware of something else, something you want, it will manifest because it's already there, only outside of your awareness right now. It's right under your nose as we speak.
