Draft: Reflexive Reality

Disparate threads of a common idea abound:

  • George Soros noted the reflexivity in markets where increasing consensus of a recession causes CEOs to cut back on investment, precipitating the recession
  • In Small Gods, Terry Pratchett wrote about Gods fueled and made real and made powerful by belief
  • His collaborator Neil Gaiman did the same in American Gods, less fantasy, more modern/historical commentary
  • https://www.collaborativefund.com/blog/immeasurably-important/

In the pursuit of science, we try to only believe in real things. However in the human/social sphere, Belief causes reality.
