If you can think it, you can be it. Except. You already know this.
There is a forced circular relationship between ideal and real, meaning, if you can ‘think’ it, you can ‘be’ it. Explaining ‘think’ and ‘do’ books in grammar school. And, also, the forced circular relationship between abstract and concrete (anything).
It also means, whatever you think, is true, is true (and, also, half-the time, false).
So, again, it’s up to you to make your thoughts real. Bearing in mind, ‘not-you’ is always going to take the opposing relationship to ‘you.’ Because you, and not-you, share, like ideal and real, any X and-or Y, a circular relationship.
This means you have exactly one enemy. This enemy resides within. The not-you to your ‘you.’ (And, always, vice versa.)
So, on the outside, in the open, you will work to understand the not-you within you (the ideal you vs. the real you) by interacting with all the other ‘you’s’ (constituents) in nature.
Meaning, nature falls, neatly into two categories, ideal and real (you and not-you).
So, ‘either-and’ is ‘both-or,’ meaning, you have to decide, for yourself, what is real (and, also, ideal). Realizing, everybody else is doing this, also.
Explaining why half-of-us get it right, achieve our dreams, etc., and the other-half, not-so-much.
Or, if you want to live in an ideal world (the real word) everybody achieves dreams and gets it right all the time (all the time is, necessarily, half-the-time).
Meaning every zero is a one (and vice versa) because every circumference is, necessarily, a diameter. From a circle’s point of view. Therefore, from ‘your’ point of view.
Explaining male and female. Within and without. In agreement, and-or, fighting. Why everyone is both male and female, each of these, half-the-time. Why active and passive need each other in order to survive.
Circular is relative. And, always, vice versa. So, the rest takes care of itself.
Meaning, you already know everything you need to know, and you already have everything you need to have, in order to turn real into ideal (and-or vice versa).
