There have been various discussions of Steve Jobs‘ “Reality Distortion Field”. Some might mean it indeed in the sense of distorting what is real. Others talk of Steve’s ability to convince one of things one did not actually believe.
But maybe – and then the name would not truly fit – it is about creating something better. For energy follows thought (cf. e.g. Mantak Chia’s advice for starting Tao Yoga), and when we live as if our vision was already manifest in the outer world, it shall be. (*)
