So how does a Prophet ‘do’ Prophecy.
Well there are commonalities amongst all such descriptions. Whether you look at a fire, a bowl of water, a crystal or go into a sleepy trance the
trance state is the one common denominator.
Now some interesting questions!
Do they see? From what perspective? Can they zoom in and out or is it a set focal point? Could their point of viewing be close enough so a 55” TV
looks like reality and if so what would they make of a light sabre duel?
Do they hear? From what distance? How much can they hear and can they zoom in on specific conversations? Otherwise good luck in a night club!
Do they feel such things as heat and cold or is it just like a TV, restricted to sight and sound? Careful here, your own normal reality will hinder
Can they get a sense of emotions? Are the visions Empathic or Telepathic?
The most important question is this. Do they understand the significance of what they see? If they don’t, then Prophecy can be about mundane
matters as well. One of Nostradamus’ quatrains speaks of a foul murder near a river. What if he wrote what he saw but the murder was just a
murder, not worthy of historical significance, yet Authors and pundits are claiming it is about this or that, never realizing the true insignificance
of the passage.
Now we come to the problems of historical and modern disinformation agents.
A set of prophecies widely quoted are by Mother Shipton. It is proven that Charles Hindley thought it would be a great thing to embellish her works
and added greatly to them including the famous “The world will end in 1881.”
Of course Mother Shipton said no such thing and yet to this day, in spite of information to the contrary available on Wiki, this is sited as yet
another failed prophecy.
As it stands now, there is so much utter crap on the internet dealing with all known works of prophecy, that the entire Prophetic realm is all but
useless except to those that have studied very deeply indeed.
So, why the mystique, why are many Prophecies bound in words nearly impossible to decipher. I have always known the answer to this one. Prophecy in
the clear is generally useless. Either it can be prevented or it can be believed and being believed, become self fulfilling. It is much the same as
the argument against time travel. If you go back in time and shoot your father then you would never had been born and thus could not go back and
shoot your father who therefore has a son and now you can go back and shoot him and around we go again as many times as we want to. Like time travel,
Prophecy is paradoxical in nature.
Other than that, prophecy could be one of the greatest con jobs in history, perpetuated on the gullible, generation after generation. Then you come
across obvious hits like the above mentioned half pig / half man Quatrain and have to do some rethinking.
Remember always, Prophets only describe their visions and they describe them relative to their knowledge base. It helps if you can get a feel for
what life was like in their era otherwise it is very difficult indeed. Damn, more research for you. Oh, hell, why not just take the easy approach
and do what everyone else does, make it up as you go, no one's going to check it after all.
