Aren't we all.  :)

Obviously, a mage can avoid disbelieving an Illusion he's created.

Can he create an Illusion when he's the only sentient in the room?  Or
does an Illusion require the support of someone believing in it?

If yes to the first question above, then cannot the Illusionary cat be
directed to jump into a chest that is then closed?  And within that
chest, continue to exist?  If it cannot, what quality is lacking within
the closed chest?  Witnesses?  Ambient light?

Any guesses?  Anyone?  Beuller?
