  1. we don't know either way. It seems that believing it exists causes your ego to be depleted though.

  2. it probably relates to the original context in which you do the visualisation. You have given one example of a context where conflicting results might come out, there are several similar situations, so it's hard to know. I would feel safe saying that it seems to work some of the time for some people.
