there are kinds of things which require only our assent to exist.

About: a facebook dialogue with RHB

Seth Russell my point was: there are kinds of things which require only our assent to exist. For example this trip to San Francisco - if i say i will go, then it will happen. I think frequently people get confused as to what kind of thing it is ... especially when it comes to political matters. Is some particular thing of the nature of "salting pasta water before boiling makes better pasta" ... or of the nature, " it only needs my cooperation to make it true"? 

Is which kind of thing it is, always quite so very clear?
