I am rather fond of how Alex Collier, back in 1994, stated that significant events would begin unfolding end of August/beginning of September 2001.
Planes Crashing into Buildings, which lead on to ...
Shock and Awe
Weapons of Mass Destruction
War on Terror (NOT terrorism)
North Korean Missile Testing
Iranian Nuclear Programs
(I'm certain i left plenty of other things out)
My personal view of the world changed greatly after all this stuff. Reading about world wars, international affairs, terrorism, 3rd world
instabilities, and what not that occured before my time and actually living in a decade of the same rubbish is two completely different things. I am
astounded as to what George W accomplished in his two terms. He'll likely go down as one of the most memorable presidents in history, in no way do I
mean that in a positive light. Dick Cheney will just be a passing in the wind.
Of course, Alex had many bold predictions most of which didn't come true. So it now comes down to how a prediction actually unfolds.
Another approach to predictions could be related to Terrence McKenna's Timewave Zero theory. If syncronocities in history truely does occur in a
downward spiral, then we're likely to see more and more strange things happening more frequently. The recent wave of decapitations is quite
baffling. If McKenna's theory truely does model such a historical pattern, then its possible that anybody can predict that something crazy will
happen on such and such a date and infact turn out that something stupid did occur.
I don't recall too many significant events happening in the 80's/90's that was conversation worthy. Challenger Shuttle exploding, Massacre at
Tiannamin Square, Gulf War, Internet going mainstream, nintendo, etc. Compared to 2000 and beyond, a whole lot more stuff has happened. Stuff is
happening now and the future is looming on economic collapse and Iranian war/WW3. Of course, we could blame global communications as to why we know
so little about world events in the 80's/90's and why we know so much about 2000+ now.
So in conclusion, when a prediction is made and it does not occur, its dismissed as rubbish. When a prediction is made and something does occur, its
dismissed as lucky coincidence. Everyone knows that stuff is happening and is going to happen in the future, predicting it is like throwing darts at
a dart board. I for one am amused at the people who manage to hit dead center and I feel it's worth investigating such intuition. Precognition is
an interesting subject.
