How many Prophets are there in the wormhole, btw?
I don't remember if they said how many prophets lived in the wormhole. I do remember that they had those mystical orbs called 'tears of the prophets,' and that each had a specific divination purpose. Not surprisingly, there were nine of them.
Thanks for your interesting analysis.
I do know that 9 is the Chinese number of completion and fulfillment.
Spoke again to me the NINE saying: Seek ye to find the path to beyond. Not impossible is it to grow to a consciousness above. For when TWO have become ONE and ONE has become the ALL, know ye the barrier has lifted, and ye are made free of the road. Grow thou from form to the formless. Free may thou be of the road.
It is expected that many will scoff, yet the true student will read between the lines and gain wisdom. If the light is in you, the light which is engraved in the Tablets will respond.

This fits the scenario of the Biblical GREAT DECEPTION quite well--like a hand in glove.
The song describes a man seeking help to find love, so he talks to a Gypsy who determines, by means of palmistry, that he needs "love potion number 9".
To punish mankind, Zeus and eight other deities gathered to form the Council of Nine. The council members were Aphrodite, Apollo, Athena, Demeter, Hephaestus, Hera, Hermes, Poseidon and Zeus.
Together this council created Pandora, and sent her, as a gift, to Epimetheus. Epimetheus was also given Pandora's Box, and told to never open it. Curiosity got the better of Pandora and she opened the box, releasing all of the misfortunes of Mankind.

Though Roddenberry had access to the best private and public minds available in the day with many only too willing to volunteer their own visions of the possible future.

I'm a Trek fan. I have been since I could walk and talk. I'll be at the midnight showing of the next movie! I used to have a uniform in my closet and some Vulcan ears laying around ...
Concerning Gene's ability to "predict" future technology:
I think it works the other way around. I think Gene was creative and came up with awesome technological devices, and as kids people watched in wonder. Star Trek inspired people to become astronauts and scientists, and when they were grown up -- they saw to it to make Gene's vision reality.
Look at our iPads ... PADD anyone? Someone, somewhere obviously watched Star Trek and saw to it that we could have the cool tablets like on ST:TNG
Another interesting connection would be Stargate. Has anyone noticed something coincidental about the symbol/chevron for Earth?
It has the same triangle/arrow shape...
I have a feeling that there really is somthing connecting all of this stuff behind the scenes.
