I think it is demonstrated very much in the book. An example for me is the arrival of the dog. The dog overheard Adam describing his ideal dog to his friends and transformed himself accordingly. If Adam had seen the dog first, the dog would have been very different, which may have affected Adam. Another example would be the friendships in the book. Adam has his friends about him at the precise necessary time. I think they are foretelling the outcome and that it is very true to life. Abstract concepts of good and evil are all very well, but it is the little things, what we do and don't do, that make the difference.
