this post makes me think of clairvoyance, or 100th monkey, ultimately leading to a hive mind.
everyone/thing simultaneously learns how to do something or receives something from the actions of one.
it's jarring, what was once unseen or not there, unique, would instantly be present, normal, common.
also i think this "thought force" you're describing becomes more available with the less preconceived notions you have.
I'm not sure if you've run across it before but Biocentrism is a theory along these same lines. It claims that we as the observer are the basis for the reality around us and that nothing truly exists outside of the perception of consciousness. It makes sense to me because everything around us is created by the senses, the senses are created within the mind, and everything we experiences is based on these senses. Basically it says that we are all co-creators of the universe through the act of existence.

Seems tome that you are essentially talking about the law of attraction. I've often thought of it like your description, competing wills with the most forceful winning. Obviously many people with the same belief amplifies the force.
What you didn't mention is emotion. I see this as the catalyst that give a thought its force, or amplifies ones will. Often overlooked and very tricky to control. This is partly why some occult rituals are so theatrical, to provide emotional focus giving the energy specific form/direction.
Good post OP you should get drunk more often!
I like the term thought-force, easier to understand than saying psionics or willpower. I liked the part about lucid dreaming as that was 100% accurate. The major stumbling block I have found between dreams and reality is not just the dense energy aspect but time as well. Time moves in a different way here compared with the dreamworld, it's more lax over there.
I definitely think there is something to some of what you wrote. The spiritual term for many of the strange things that happen to people, things that help them spiritually or physically, is grace. I think most people do not even realize when such events occur. Small things that happen that could even potentially save your life. Something that never happens does indeed happen on a single occasion, and later you find out that had that event not occurred, something tragic could have happened. This happens more than people realize, but it need not be so dramatic.
It really does seem that there is some "supernatural" force, or thought force, or something, that operates to help individuals grow spiritually, or to help them out in various ways. Such a thing cannot be explained by our current scientific knowledge, but nevertheless, they still occur. There are many things that occur in the entire field of the paranormal, none of which can be scientifically explained...Yet these things happen. Part of the reason why these are not scientifically addressed is that there is a negative connotation to such things, meaning it is taboo, and that no credible scientist would touch it. And another part of the problem is that there are not many ways to experimentally verify something paranormal.
So the truth of the matter is that science, even with all it has given us, has only worked for us when it comes to a portion of the physical world. Science still does not have the answers to some of the most basic questions. Something is going on, related to what you are describing, and there is some underlying force, whether it is God or something else, that goes about the world and does good deeds. And coincidence alone cannot account for such things, mathematically speaking.
Thanks, glad this turned out ok; Always thinking, just not always sharing without prompt if it's mostly theoretical. I must admit I can't say I have a grasp of how time being different would affect consciousness manipulating energy/perceived matter.
