Looking for a term that defines individuals as having created everything around them by being a medium of perception.

When talking about reality. I'm looking for a word / term that says that we create everything and anything.

I hope my question is clear enough.
Thank you.

      But I've gotten the impression there's a better term out there that I'm looking for.

      We create reality. There is no "the truth" there is a truth that exists in us and it's possible to change it, depending on other agents beliefs and powers to exert those beliefs.
      Something is usually the truth when the majority think it's the truth, but someone or some people made the majority think that way.

      I'll try to use the word I'm looking for in a sentence:
      "Who won the second world war? Was it America or was it the Soviet Union? [insert word] believe you can create the truth by influencing people. Most pro-Russians believe they won while pro-Americans believe they won."

      If there is no such term I will coin one and start my climb to stardom :) too bad creationism is already taken - I think it's describing.

        Dec 29 2012: I too think that "creationist" would be a good term. How about manifester?
