So then people who are born retarded, severely disabled, etc... children who die of cancer created their own reality? That sounds like non-sense to me.

The man who was robbed and beaten and left to die who the good Samaritan helped created his own situation of being robbed and beaten by his words? I don't believe that.

Me fear is that I will NOT die. That some heroic do-gooders will keep waking me up when my time comes.
