    Are you saying that our expectations create reality? Like if I expect the
    U.S. to withdraw troops from the Middle East it will happen? I'm
    confused. About all I can gather from your explanation is that we all
    expect to have a future but not necessarily the same future except that
    some things will occur and other things won't, like the example of the
    football game and the cat. Perhaps if you gave a few more examples of
    how expectation creates reality and how DQ can be static when by
    definition it's dynamic, I would see the light.
