Our starting premise is:
With that out of the way, my question is: Can we therefore predict with pinpoint accuracy exactly what is going to happen and when in my life?
How does the universe decide what event to physicalise in my reality and how does it decide exactly when that event should occur?
Let me illustrate.
Long back, one day, I had a desire. It just flashed in front of my eyes, a "wouldn't it be nice if..." kind of thought. I never thought about it since. Suddenly, it has now manifested. You would say that it has manifested because I am now vibrationally aligned to that wish.
Which is fine, but how do I know exactly what wish I am now, at this exact moment, vibrationally aligned to?
Another example. Many times in the past I have had so called negative imaginations, like many people do... "what if my car got stolen..." etc. Nothing of that sort has ever physicalised. However I have in the past had many instances of people being aggressive or rude to me, motorists cutting me off, etc., etc. You would say I was feeling negative and the universe sent me events to match my vibration.
Which is fine, but how did the universe decide what exact event to send my way? Did it sift through all my past visualisations, and said, "Nope, none of those matches this particular vibe, so I'll manufacture a fresh event to match it"?
Finally: timing. How does the universe decide exactly at what moment an event to manifest?
Let me illustrate. Suppose in a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being the happiest), I am generally hovering between 3 and 5. A 'negative' event occurs, but at that exact moment I was at 7 or 8, i.e. quite happy. I am now thoroughly confused by the events. I seemed to be coasting just fine when I was 3 to 5, but now get this when I am 8? How does that work?
At other times, I got immediate feedback. I was feeling terrible, and more things happened straightaway that made me feel even more terrible.
So how does the universe decide when to do what needs doing?
What is the point of this rambling?
If LOA is a law, it must be a exact, measurable, predictable and repeatable.
If I can work out the precise logic the universe follows to decide what to manifest and when, that means I effectively know my own future before it happens!!! I can say that today for 37 minutes I was at mood level 4, but the rest of the time I was between 5.1 and 7.78, therefore based on my calculations, I'll get a flat car battery tomorrow at 8.06am, but not to worry, my neighbour will help me out.
Now I know what you are thinking. How do you know when you are at mood level 7.78 and not 7.5? Can we ever measure our mood with that precision? I take that point on board, but still, the principle stands.
What are your thoughts on this?
It can't be a Science because (traditional) science deals with the paradigm that there is an Out There that can be studied independent of ourselves.
If you are going along with a Law of Attraction physical reality model, this cannot be the case.
In the Law of Attraction model, there is only In Here, and Out There is a reflection of it.
And Out There only exists for others who are playing the physical reality game when enough of them ("the observers") think the same way that they can vibrationally perceive (with their physical senses) a common Out There to agree upon.
Of course, all their Out There perceptions are just reflections of their own agreed-upon In Here focusing and are not because of some absolute unchanging Out There. (See Do scientists just make up their own answers?)
You cannot go down a physical-evidence Science-based route because you cannot force others to think the way you do and perceive the way you do. I can tell you all day long about things that happen in my reality but until you are on the same vibrational level and are perceiving in broadly the same way as me, they won't exist for you and you won't accept they happen.
For example, on this website Inward Quest, we get these threads from time to time about how great certain people on the site are in guiding and teaching others. But that's really looking at it the wrong way.
For me, I've been basically saying the same thing on this site in different ways for more than five years. I find it to be an ongoing stimulating intellectual challenge to think of yet another way to repeat myself :)
And I've been listening to Abraham for a couple of decades saying the same thing in different ways. And before that, and before the Internet, I've been coming across many others saying the same thing repeatedly in different ways.
So it's not that I, or anyone else, is a great teacher or whatever (I'm certainly not), it's that an Observer who wasn't on the vibrational level of that information previously has now finally brought themselves to the level where they can perceive the information that was always there before, and being repeatedly said by so many others.
It didn't matter that the information was Out There already, it was only when the Observer of it was ready to Observe that it was there that it became a part of their reality. And who they then decide outside themselves to credit for their own change in observational attitude is really quite irrelevant :)
So when you say...
...the "exact, predictable, repeatable" part that you are alluding to in your question is that of a vibrational journey (not a physical Science-based journey) because it can only be personal and perceptible to you. It's only up to you to decide when a manifestation happens because there is no such thing as a manifestation outside your perception of it.
The truth is that once you've thought of something, you've manifested it.
Everything else is just about playing observational games with yourself and others so you can tune into that briefly-held thought again (we call those briefly-held thoughts, "desires"), and you can play those games in whatever way you want. See What should I tell the 'concerned' people around me when things have not yet manifested?
If you want others to agree with you that you've manifested something, you now have to find ways to bully them somehow, and at some level, into perceiving that thought in a similar way to you :)
So a statement in your question like...
...doesn't really make sense because there is no Out There universe doing anything or deciding anything. It's all you and your personal vibrational journey of perception.
And the idea of that vibrational journey, as far as most humans on this planet at this time are concerned, translates into an Emotional Journey...and that journey can be quantified using the Emotional Guidance Scale...
The yellow boxes in the diagram above are some predictable aspects of this personal emotional journey of realignment with that "thought of desire"...a "frequency", if you like.
Physical reality itself is really a menu of those available frequencies, along with physically-projected beings who are choosing (consciously or not) to perceive selections of them and thereby include them into their own physical reality experiences.
It's going to be a tough job to predict the outcome of blending your choice of frequencies with those already offered by billions of others currently alive, along with the countless other vibrational offerers who have focused on physical reality before. And let's not even get into the time-is-an-illusion so past-present-and-future-are-all-NOW business here :)
Even if you could somehow blend together all the vibrational factors, even if you could somehow predict how all the frequencies will mish-mash together, even if you could somehow highlight a particular frequency to tune into to empirically proclaim that a manifestation has occurred in a "scientific way", you still can't (as I said above) control another's observation of that frequency.
So you can tell people all day long that you are manifesting your life "exactly, predictably and repeatably" in a science-based way and they still won't believe you :)
Probably easier to just stick to finding ways to feel good and letting your life sort itself out :)

Wow @Cod2. I would be very surprised if anyone could give you an accurate answer to that question! Not that there is no overarching Universal law that might be acting, but I don't think that in our current state of consciousness we would be able to understand all the laws in the Universe that would go into creating any specific event. Very likely, there are much higher level laws happening that shape events in addition to the ones you listed such as the law of attraction and emotional vibration. I think if there was such a minute by minute relationship of our emotions with events, human beings would have long recognised that and acted accordingly. Also the probability of any event happening would probably depend on the vibrational states of others. So if you were to come across a very angry person at a time you are feeling good, that may not protect you from being attacked. I guess there will be people on this site who might suggest a formula for predicting events as you suggest, but I truly doubt that anyone has yet penetrated this mystery, at least no mortal human being. If you ever find out the answer ... please share though! :-)
This is a very relevant question for which no objectively satisfying answer can be easily provided because you are dealing with the basis of all reality i.e. your Self (: or consciousness :) of which "objectivity" is a child or a creation. Objectivity is an illusion of imagination.
Language is a result of objective consciousness and whenever we use it we tend to objectify the ideas. Don't get me wrong - language is very useful but once you're dealing with the Source of all things i.e. your Self or the Unified You, it starts to become problematic because you're referring to the Law in an objective manner as if it is somehow separate from you. Truth be known, there is no "law", there's just YOU i.e. your Unified Undifferentiated Consciousness (: Divinity :) which is the same as everything and everyone "else" (: there's no "else" actually :). This "law" we keep talking about since it is convenient to talk that way using language is just YOU and all that is being said is that YOU MUST EXPERIENCE THAT WHICH YOU FUNDAMENTALLY ARE no matter what form it might assume.
In terms of predictability, you ALWAYS achieve 100% correspondence because the form MUST reflect the general state of mind. The degree to which you can determine the detail is related to how much you know of your own state of mind and how long you maintain that state, we like new experiences so we deliberately create change as we move our consciousness through different states along the illusive timeline we call "life" and as we change we alter the consciousness so it's not that easy to pin down while experiencing things objectively. Further subjecting consciousness to a test brings in doubt which is but a belief in experiencing something contrary to what one is focused which in itself is a point of focus and therefore you will still experience what you focus but thinking your experience is not correlated to your perception. This is out of reach of objective science which is but a creation of the parent which is your consciousness.
In short, the word "law" is just for convenience of communicating the idea. Fact is, there's no law, there's just YOU and all that you experience regardless of form must at is core be YOU. There's no escaping your Self is all that we're saying.
Let me know if this helps in some way.
