It seems that language, as an idiograph or way of speaking can and will "cast a net," whereby most anything one says can and will come true by
If you look at any country in any year, one could confirm the "prophecy," regarding stability as valid.
By the same token, Nostradamus cast a linguistic net over reality, and it does "come true," not necessarilty by foresight but in the raw
interpretation of a broad net catching we the gullable "fish," if you will. Surely some people take advantage of that literary net and point to what
happens in history as validating say "Hisler," and "Hitler," for example. The backhand of jokes is that the rest of the foresight was not at all
flattering, but so pessimistic that Hitler dismissed the corollary, ceasing all those commentaries.
Another thing is to "be careful what you wish for, you may get it."
The world each day is surely in God's hands, and be it so that "God's work must surely be our own," on this earth, then their is a wealth of
possibilities in each day, in each moment.
William Ernest Henley put it:
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.
Each day is renewed in the possibilities in whatever your state and station, you only need advantage it with the levers of conscience. Why rely on the
journal of others to a fault? Rely on your own journal, in fact write it, or if you must, adopt the "great ideas," of others as your own. I think if
you attribute things right, it is called "research."
So my argument is that John Titor surely did create conversation, and that if what he says "comes true," it is because here or there every word is
in the dictionary. Everything has been said, it only has to be said again.
