Submission statement: If you don’t feel like reading the picture and just want a TL;DR, it basically explains how creative visualization during certain altered states of consciousness (meditation) can actually create desired effects in reality. Basically the CIA goes along with the theory that the universe is a hologram and claims that we can create our own mini holograms with our thoughts. If we focus on these enough they become a part of objective reality. This is basically the of law of attraction, but they’ve worded it more scientifically.
However, it also warns against visualizing a reality too different from this one. It can result in dislocating yourself from this world and leaving you stranded in some isolated and deranged one. Philip K. Dick talked about something similar.
