To the solipsist all of your reality is constructed by you, or rather, since your perceived reality is indistinguishable from a sufficiently good simulation it wouldn't matter if it was since it's the only reality you have.
We could be in the matrix, be cylons, or created by God 5 minutes ago and we couldn't know differently. Would you want to know? Would it make a difference? Perhaps that's fatalistic..?
The notion of choosing the reality that suits you best is not new in film - Leo DeCaprio has done it at least twice with Shutter Island and Inception...
Rachel (and Decker should you choose to believe) being able to reproduce was implied to be by design. Dr Wallace (as he slaughtered the new but imperfect replicant) seemed to say that Tyrell had found the secret and created Rachel as a prototype, then took the secret to his grave, and all other records destroyed in the blackout.
I don't think Deckard is channelling Oppenheimer quite yet...
