Life would spread out on all sides of us, in more forrns than we ever thought possible; we would be like sea creatures discovering land and air.Prediction Three: UFOs
AT THE TIME OF THIS WRITING the New Zealand Air Force believes in UFOs. Officially.
They've got a squadron of. Skyhawks on standby to track Unidentified Flying Objects, after a spectacular sighting. filmed by a television crew, confirmed by experienced pilots, and tracked on radar.
When the film was shown on New Year's Day on the CBS Evening News, it prompted the most whimsical sign-off of Walter Cronkite’s career: "And that's the way it- is or is it?"
A Wellington, New Zealand, air traffic controller said, "We now have recorded sightings by six pilots on three aircraft over 10 days and a host of radar sightings." Similarly impressive sightings have been recorded in the last three months in Australia, Italy and Kuwait. It's hard to believe that there won't be contact in the near, if not immediate, future.
There is no way to gauge the effect this would have, for better or worse -probably for both. One thing is certain: undeniable contact with UFOs and widespread exchanges of any sort will go a long way toward teaching us our place in the universe. Presumably, we are as vulnerable to their influx as the American Indian was to the European. The best we can hope for is that through the shock the immensity of the universe would be brought home to us, and our arrogance as a race would be goaded into the beginnings of wisdom.
The fulfillment of any one of these predictions would shatter the human self-image as fully as Copernicus, Galileo Columbus and Gutenberg shattered the medieval mind. We use the word "medieval" to cover the hundreds of years between the decline of Rome and Coperni-cus; there will be another word, to, lump the time between Copernicus and, say, 2002. What comes after us will be as different,in essence as we are different from,the people of, say, 1066. And it will be recognized that the huge burst of energy in the last 100 years which expressed itself on the surface as technology, was actually a deep thrust toward a new age.
If, that is, my final Prediction doesn't come true as well.Prediction Four: Cataclysm
WALK TO OR READ THE psychics, and you will hear much about "earth changes." This refers to changes in our planet itself that are even more sweeping than the changes I've predicted in our consciousness. There is a consensus among many of the most respected psychics, and their vision is frightening.We Are the Earthquake Generationby Jeffrey Goodman, is a compendium of the predictions of several psychics who have well-documented track records for accuracy-not total accuracy, of course, but an accuracy comparable to a trained meteorologist predicting the weather.
This is a selection from Goodman's list of coming attractions: 1980-1985: regularly occurring large-scale earthquakes, land sinkings and coastal inundations for California, Oregon, Washington, western Canada and Alaska; Palm Springs under water; San Diego, Los Angeles, and San Francisco destroyed; California coastline pushed back to Bakersfield, Fresno and Sacramento; a seaway opened up through Central Oregon (from west to east) reaching the Idaho border. A major earthquake destroys a large part of New York City. Land rises off the southeast coast of the United States near Bimini in the Bahamas.1985-1990: a major eruption of Vesuvius in Italy initiated by a violent earthquake that causes damage as far off as France and Scandinavia; western U.S. is severely, stricken by a flurry of earthquakes; New York City is completely broken up; a series of earthquakes strikes the Middle East, Syria, Iran, Iraq, and Israel; Earth's axis of rotation dips a few degrees. 1990-2000: major sections of the Western United States fall into the sea as the coastline moves eastward in a series of violent surges-the final coastline will be established in Nebraska and Kansas; the west coast of South America inundated; land rises off what used to be San Diego; most of Japan gone under the ocean; Africa is torn apart; ancient cities and ancient records found on land rising from the ocean, leading to new concepts of earth's. pre-history and of human rights; the pole shifts-Earth’s axis of rotation changes location in a sudden tumbling of the planet, during which rotation ceases for several days and the Sun and other heavenly bodies appear to be fixed in their movement during this time-when the planet begins to rotate again the day-night cycle is re-established, the North and South poles drastically shifted to new positions; New Zealand becomes the new land of hope and opportunity; veils lift from mens' minds, men learn their true nature and capabilities; space people visit planet to observe.
"Ominously," Goodman reports, "on January 2, 1976, a related and highly specific prediction made by (Edgar) Cayce in 1932 came to pass when Mount Etna erupted and the New Hebrides Islands in the South Pacific-located directly on the other side of the planet from Mount Etna-were struck by a strong quake (6.8 on the Richter scale). This rare, simultaneous occurrence can be seen as, starting the countdown for fulfillment of Cayce's literally earthshaking prophecies.
