Perhaps they will start conforming to materialistic standards...but I'm betting not. This isn't just a 'sometimes' thing...this is life itself. It does have to start to be accepted as a valid concept within global consciousness though, and I think that is happening.
This is kinda of a lame example so bear with me...
I look to that whole 'Secret' silliness. People ya just wouldn't expect to fall for it, dove in hook line and sinker. Why the hell did they...why was that a best seller? I think I know. Because the basic principle is sound.. barring all the fluff! Our global psyche knows that this is how reality works, it was willing to accept it to some degree.
ps...Maybe your asking why haven't I won the lottery then, If I'm so damn good at this thing? Haha. For one mth I actually did tried. I'm human after all!
I played the same 6 numbers over about a 6 wk span. In my area we have two draws for two different lotteries on the same day. Twice during that time period I got 4 out of 6 numbers!!! AND..get this...On one of those occasions 4 of the numbers came up on one of the draws, while on the same day the other two numbers came up on the other draw.
Funny stuff eh. I gave up trying after that. It seemed damn shallow! Money's only pretty colored paper anyway (here in Canada that is...you yanks have boring money!)
