And dare I mention my own attempt of contacting the forces that be in the cosmos, which gave me the information that Japan would be the site of the next 8+ mag quake, a year before it happened. Wouldn't it be great if there indeed WAS an Akashic Record of all things, because then we would need to merely peer into the future and see where the next big one is.
