    If all belief manifested into reality, what would happen if two individuals held mutually exclusive beliefs about the very same events?

    Insight?

    :wink:

    Better to think about other stuff.

    The article explained that belief would be in this situation the mean of all beliefs - ie every sentient believer has a proportional influence on the outcome. So if there were only two people and they believed contradictory things about the same event they would probs cancel out I guess. However there are billions of “believers” in this hypothetical situation so that is unlikely to occur. It would be some amalgamation of all inputs

    So the logically correct formulation of @creativesoul's answer would be "anything" according to the ex falso quodlibet principle. The moon would consist of green cheese and we could prove it.
