I don't give this thread more than two hours before it goes down the [HOAX] drain!
Look, and I'm quoting Wittgenstein here, "The limit of our universe is determined by the limit of our language". Our whole worldview and
idiosincracies are determined (and constituted at the same time) by our language.
That is to say, we cannot think outside of language, nor can we envision -even less talk about- things that do not exist.
When reading this "prophecy" written in the XI-XII, speaking of "dollars" "skyscrappers" "environmentalism" "genetic" etc, etc, etc, it
becomes absolutely evident that it was written by someone who already commands this language -which in itself does not have more than one hundred
years of existence.
Put differently, someone writing in the XI century under no circumstance could have used words that at the time did not exist. Even if he saw
in some sort of schizophrenic rapture, something as the internet or skyscrappers (or for that manner, a timetravelling delorean driven by a nerd)
he would have had to describe them using his own language. Just as Nostradamus did.
In sum, whoever wrote this "prophecy" already had the language included in his universe. A recent language that is. Thus, a recent "prophecy".
Indeed, language is everything.
