    Does everything happen, because we think it will happen?

    Yes, real thought creates the world. The question is rather - do most people think?

    Does the world exist because we think it, or is only our own existence verified in the action of thinking?

    Solipsism and the Problem of Other Minds

    Solipsism is sometimes expressed as the view that "I am the only mind which exists," or "My mental states are the only mental states." However, the sole survivor of a nuclear holocaust might truly come to believe in either of these propositions without thereby being a solipsist. Solipsism is therefore more properly regarded as the doctrine that, in principle, "existence" means for me my existence and that of my mental states. Existence is everything that I experience -- physical objects, other people, events and processes -- anything that would commonly be regarded as a constituent of the space and time in which I coexist with others and is necessarily construed by me as part of the content of my consciousness. For the solipsist, it is not merely the case that he believes that his thoughts, experiences, and emotions are, as a matter of contingent fact, the only thoughts, experiences, and emotions. Rather, the solipsist can attach no meaning to the supposition that there could be thoughts, experiences, and emotions other than his own. In short, the true solipsist understands the word "pain," for example, to mean "my pain." He cannot accordingly conceive how this word is to be applied in any sense other than this exclusively egocentric one.

    We would have had so much to discuss in real (not on-line) after this only your phrase. The fact is that this world (the world we know) both exists and doesn't exist at the same "time". But the common points of view of the essence of this world have nothing to do with reality. To some extent your existence and ontological status justifies the reality of this world. Till you are the part of it, it's real for you, no matter whether it is really, when you realise with the whole your Self, that it's a fake, you won't be the part of this world any more. But maybe the most important points are:
    1. This world is a copy of a copy of a ... of a reality and is illusory.
    2. Illusory doesn't mean non-existent. Everything exists. There's no absolute nothing. Even if there's, there's not because Absolute Nothing always does NOT and is NOT.
    Cheers Keep your mind healthy

    Indeed, especially after a few beers .

    This is quite an interesting topic and one I'm not so familiar in. Is these any other additions?

    Re: Sv: Do we create the world?

    There is no way for me to prove or disprove that my mind is the only existing mind and that everything I experience is created by my mind.

    But if that were true, then I would be God.
