I begin with a proposition that like mental attraction – the rule that we are attracted to those who are intellectually and physically similar to ourselves – applies not only to the interaction between persons of human nature and between us and the world of living items around us, but also between ourselves and the universe.
I am somewhat a Fatalist in opinion, alas. It is quite an error to rely on the world to decorate out what must be and what path we should take, but I ‘see’ things that are more than coincidences everywhere. Thus, my hypotheses turn to higher powers.
The Universe knows. Surely it is a living being (of sorts) itself? Even if it is something beyond our comprehension of the use of terms ‘living’ and ‘being’. (To me, the state of οντοςis existing, but not all scholars agree to this point.) Following from that inference that the universe, being, possesses a type of sense like we do, it must be that it can tell of our thoughts – or take into account our emotions.
What of it? If Fate plays some part, is some toy of the Universe, then it may come to a point where the Universe is feeding off our negative or positive emotions to create exactly what we have come to see.
I hold that this is not the same as solipsism, where the universe is a created state within the mind (but what then is the place of being which holds the mind in existence?) – there, the Universe does neither exist nor have οντος; instead, we exist within a Universe that is able to read our thoughts (or perhaps the energy signals from them, if we were to able a Cognitive or Transferral route) and act accordingly to them.
Thus, self-control or –regulation is important to not have ourselves wandering down a circular path of negative thoughts and negative happenings. If we begin to view ourselves with a negative address, the Universe feels this and responds with a mutual feeling.
A mental attraction of existential properties: the like attracts the negative like, forming a negative lifestyle. However, disparity is abolished when it is realised that the opposite also concurs: like positive attracts the like positive states of the Universe, be it sentient, conscious or merely respondative.
That is: if one believes in one’s self, one is more likely to be given a series of happier occurrences, because of the Universe’s like connection to one’s own.

 It is quite another tangent to talk of third eyes or low-level psychic fields. Stay tuned…
 ‘Ontos’: Greek participle of the verb to be. May have slightly different connotations to the English use of the verb.
