Subject: Question about weighting
As a frequent visitor to your site, I started thinking
about your success rate. And I now have some
Do you (in your own mind) "weight" your
predictions as to belief in their accuracy? In
other words, are there some predictions of which you are
more certain than others?
And if there are, on what basis does that occur?
And, again, if you weight in your own mind the
probabilities of accuracy, what is your success rate for
those ones of which you feel sure? Is it higher in
those years where you only got an overall 55% rate?
Another question that comes to mind
is why do you split your prediction periods into calendar
years? The calendar is after all a pretty arbitrary
item. It isn't even exact as to what it is supposed
to measure, hence the need for leap days minutes and
Would your success rate be varied if you predicted in
units of lunar months, seasons, annual periods starting
in other months etc ?
The purpose of these questions is to see if it is
possible to "refine" your accuracy to pinpoint
those areas of time (if any) where you are
"always" right or wrong.
Finally, when your book IS available, I hope it tells us
something of you. What do you do for a living, what is
your background, were you a psychic child etc etc.
Kind regards, I love your work
Ps: Could you make the
scrolling marquees a bright colour like yellow? Scrolling
red on black is quite hard to read. I find I have
to set the mouse over the text to highlight it as it is
going past to read it.

Thanks for writing again and for complimenting my work.
It has been quite a while since I last heard from you.
Before I proceed, know who I am: I am a former musician,
disk jockey, and business school graduate who became a
poet who became interested in numerology and the
prophecies of Nostradamus who became an interpreter of
Nostradamus who made a great discovery about Nostradamus
and prophecy in general and wrote a book about it who in
the meantime was having dream visions of the future that
came true and also created a number system that has
proven to be unnervingly accurate compared to other
systems of divination.
You have asked 'in other words, are
there some predictions of which [I am] more certain than
Yes, there are some predictions that I strongly believe
will happen (in my mind AND heart) and others which
simply conform to my numerology system. In other words
there are instances where I actually 'feel' something
will happen and then there are instances where I am
simply using my head and a good knowledge of history. But
that is the point of the base 7 system: history DOES
repeat itself...OFTEN... at predictable intervals of time
(7 years and multiples of 7 years). That is the PREMISE
of the base 7 system and I am PROVING it (I hope).
Before continuing, I must re-iterate the most classic
example of my personal belief in a prediction I
made. I realise I have discussed this before, but
somehow I feel I have not yet made an adequete
I BELIEVED that Princess Diana was
in danger of losing her life in August 1997. It was more
than a Nostradamus quatrain and the number system I was
and am still using that prompted this belief. When
I saw her on television comforting Elton John at Gianni
Versace's funeral in Milan, she stopped and simply sat. I
looked into her eyes and I truly felt I had made
'contact' with her. It was a very intense experience. The
blood came to my face. And then I felt a terrible,
gut-wrenching feeling of tremendous grief. I just knew
she would be next. I thought that I was going crazy. I
did not wish to believe what I had experienced. And six
weeks later she was dead.
I suppose some 'pop' psychologist could explain all of
this and everything I have done on my web site. The
number of cynics and 'reality-entrenched' sceptics is
I believe, in theory, that if there
had been a quick and easy way to communicate with Diana
that she might not have died. In 1997, I was really quite
ignorant about how to go about doing such a thing. So
much so, that I never even THOUGHT about doing it. Why?
Because most (not all) of us are raised from birth
believing that we cannot make a difference...that we are
just cogs in a wheel. We do not dare to even think of
such things. This is reinforced by a public consensus
that anyone who tries to warn a famous or influential
person that they are in some type of danger is a 'flake'
or possibly dangerous themselves. The PC and the Internet
(I could not afford a PC until June 1998 or an Internet
service until February 1999) now makes it possible for
'flakes' such as myself to at least air our views. Still,
the night she died, I was not only grief-striken but
guilt-ridden for knowing what I 'knew' and 'letting it
Obviously I was more certain of that prediction than I
was of others that I made for 1997.
I cannot tell you on what basis these predictions I am
certain of occur.
First of all, the base 7 system I CREATED is still an
experiment-in-progress. The experiment began in January
1996. It did not exist before that. I am still
learning. I am still making new discoveries about how and
why it operates the way it does. The most recent
discovery I have made is that we have been repeating an
early-to-middle 1960s/late 1970s curve along with at
least one major feature from seven years before. I
suspect I will have to complete at least one cycle of
seven years before I will know 'everything.' That will
not occur until the year 2002 or 2003 runs its course.
Secondly, there is the issue of my actual prophetic
abilities. True visions, not calculations via numerology,
usually only happen to me in dreams or in that strange
realm between sleep and consciousness. The waking
premonition of Diana's death was one exception. A few
other exceptions (which I suspect may shock many) I will
reveal in good time on my web site. Although I have
presented some of my dream visions in DREAM WINDOWS on my
web site, these are visions that have yet to come to
pass. (I have also presented one by Jennie B. and will be
creating a special window for Conor soon).
If you have truly perused the email forums you know some
of the visions I have written of having had in dreams
that have been fulfilled. Some of these were rather
mundane; but nevertheless, came true. But I will
reiterate the more earthshaking ones (along with some I
did not mention):
1) The three-day failed Soviet coup
of August 1991.
2) The election of Bill Clinton and Al Gore in November
1992 and the attempted assassination of George Bush in
Kuwait in May 1993 (however, in the dream the
assassination appeared to be successful). Clinton
reassuring everyone that everything was all right and
that something would be done (something was done in July:
he launched a cruise missile attack against Baghdad).
3) I had two horrendous migraine headaches in 1995. In
January, I spent much of the time lying in bed, moving in
and out of sleep, experiencing disturbing and chaotic
nightmares I could make no sense of. When I awoke my
headache was finally subsiding. I turned on the televison
and learned that the Kobe Earthquake had just happened.
In April, this happened again. Several hours later I
turned on the news and reports of the Olklahoma City
Bombing were just filtering in.
4) The rash of Hamas bombings that plagued Israel in
February and March 1996. The third suicide bombing I
actually dreamt as it was happening! When I turned on the
television I saw the exact same thing being reported that
I had seen in my dream!
5) The beginning of a series of crises first instigated
by Iraq in October 1997 leading to the ongoing 'secret'
war being waged in northern and southern Iraq by the US
and Britain after Operation Desert Fox was launched in
December 1998. And this is not the end of it!
I have repeatedly had dreams since 1995 about Russia
reverting to communism or evolving into a totalitarian
nightmare. I see black plumes of smoke arising from
brilliant white fire on the water of the Persian Gulf.
Great naval vessels destroyed. I see female news anchors
with colour maps of Turkey and Iraq in the background.
Turkey and Iran. I see black Russian nuclear subs moving
through the waters of the Atlantic, moving towards the
United States. I have seen and heard nuclear ultimatums
being issued by Russia and China. I have seen people
running wildly about while plumes of smoke and fire are
visible in the distance. Russian faces on monitors,
talking, trying to help, trying to tell people where the
'loose' missiles are going to strike. I feel a sense of
restrained panic, an odd sense of de ja vu, everytime I
dream these images (as though I have already seen it on
television). They come and go in waves. The water, the
smoke, the fire, the fear.
They start as a crisis that is resolved. Then another a
few months later, worse than the one before. On again,
off again. Until finally there are conflicts that induce
worry. Some of these look like last year's war in
Yugoslavia, the aerial offensive against Grozny, the
current Israeli war in Lebanon. Even these go away,
return worse than before, go away again, return, each
time more worrisome, more frightening, more widespread.
Until we are witnessing wars like we have never seen. I
keep having these dreams and they are growing stronger
with the passing of each year.
Whatever is prompting me to have these visions is also
sometimes causing me to recognise what is most
significant in my base 7 applications. I know this all
sounds complicated. It IS complicated.
I have never had a year where my accuracy rate is only
55% (but there is always a first time). However,
early last year, I did 'mock runs' of past years before
1996 to see if I could figure out what my accuracy rate
would have been if I had applied my current methods.
I concluded, for example, that I would have predicted ONE
US air strike on Baghdad occurring in April or May 1993
(there were TWO such strikes: in January and in July).
However, I would have also predicted a nuclear power
plant crisis somewhere in the US or Russia occurring
in March or April. That would have been wrong:
however, there was a crisis in Moscow in October in the
form of an attempted revolution and threat of civil
war. I would have predicted Nato and the US first
becoming involved in Bosnia in May 1994 (they actually
did so in February) and not bringing an end to the war
until August/September 1995 (that would have been right
on the money). However, I would have also predicted a
major war breaking out in September 1994 between Iraq and
a neighbouring country like Turkey that would have gone
on for nearly a decade. That would have been wrong:
however, Saddam did move his military to the Kuwaiti
border in September in what was to have been a second
invasion. Clinton sent US forces into the region so
quickly that Saddam backed off and withdrew his forces
back to Baghdad.
However, in the end, I believe I determined that had I
used base 7 (as I understood the system in early 1999)
that my accuracy rate for 1993 would have been barely
better than 55%, about 59% for 1994, and about 69% for
1995 (same as 1996). So, I will be watching 2000 and 2001
with keen interest since it is now seven years later. I
wouldn't be surprised if my accuracy rate dips -- then
again, I know more about how to apply the system than I
did a year ago. So I may maintain the same level as last
year, a little lower, or possibly higher. I do believe
that if the worst does happen, there will be a
spectacular increase in my accuracy rate around the
autumn of 2001 and definitely in 2002.
I break my predictions into calendar years because:
In conventional numerology, each year is a separate
entity just like a person. The year 1998 = 9. 1999 = 1.
2000 = 2. 2001 = 3. ETC. Each basic number has peculiar
characteristics. 9 is governed by Neptune and has
mystical properties. 1 is governed by the sun and has
strong leadership qualities and is very willful. 2 is
governed by the moon and is eccentric, beautiful, but can
also be deadly. Indeed, the number 2, I have discovered,
is also governed by Death. (For one example out of many,
August 31, 1997 = 2.) The number 3 is governed by Mars
and is highly energetic, sexy, ambitious, and, at its
worst, is warlike.
When a new year begins, it really is a NEW YEAR!
Any loose ends existing from the previous year are
usually tied up very quickly or else evolve into
something much better or far worse. Some things actually
stop with the last day of the year or the first day of
the next. Yeltsin RESIGNED on December 31. So did
Gorbachev. The India Airline hijacking ended, depending
in what part of the world one lives in, on December 31 or
January 1. And as a reminder to people whose lives are in
danger during a particular calendar year, there are the
examples of Ricky Nelson and George Harrison. If I COULD
have advised Princess Diana, I would have told her to
avoid France right up to the last second of December
The ABOUT THE AUTHOR section of my book was written two
years ago when Llewellyn Worldwide was making all sorts
of optimistic clucking about a possible contract. The
only thing I will need to add to it is that I have a web
site. So, yes, you will know my background
(actually I have already supplied some of it, in a
general way, in this letter at the top).
In closing, I would like to add the following:
I believe EVERYONE has the gift of prophecy to some
degree -- some people only realise it once in a great
while, others more frequently. They can be 'gut
feelings,' conscious premonitions, revelations while in
an altered state, and also what I call dream visions
(which, I suppose, is also occurring in an altered state
when you think of it). Prophets should not consider
themselves as part of some sort of elite secret society.
God dwells within us all. Therefore, we are all
Why do prophets fail when they fail?
Because of the conflict between head and spirit. I am
reading a book by Damon Wilson entitled 'The Mammoth Book
of Nostradamus and Other Prophets.' He cites an article
by James Randi (aka the magician 'the Amazing Randi') who
criticises the late Jeane Dixon for predicting the
assassination of a Democrat who would be elected to the
White House in 1960 in his first term on the one hand,
and then predicting that Nixon would win the election a
few years later.
However (and Randi does not address this), after the
election, Dixon became increasingly more fearful for
Kennedy and was heard to blurt out before friends in
public places that he would die and that she could feel
the shadows drawing near. It took over eight years for
her original vision to come to pass. By the time just
before the assassination, she was actually dreaming
nightly of the shooting.
My read is that 'first impressions' are usually the
correct ones and are often psychic in nature. The problem
is the prophet also has a brain. When the reasoning
process is allowed to take over, many accurate
predictions are either contradicted or transformed into
On the font colours: I used numerology and other
considerations to determine what colours to use. Purple
is the colour of the mystic (which Nostradamus was). It
is also a colour associated with mourning and
royalty. Blue is associated with the land of Persia
and is used when dealing with Iraq, Iran, Pakistan,
Afghanistan, etc. In numerology it is also associated
with the new and experimental. Yellow is for the desert
sands of the Middle East. Green is for some spring
predictions. A muddy red colour is for natural
disasters. Grey is for the evil of terrorism and
for extremely dire man-made catastrophes. Black and white
photos and white text captures the remoteness of future
events beyond one-to-two years as it does capture the
remoteness of the past. White is also for the snows of
Russia. Red is for vibrancy and life, it is also for war,
danger, nuclear attack, alert status.
The marquees are red because they are danger alert
signals. I could change their colour to white or yellow,
but it would mean changing the text colour default on
each page I have a marquee. I tried this last night and
discovered that various sections of the text on the
affected page turned white, violet, some other colour, or
disappeared (meaning the letters had turned black and had
to be re-coloured).
I'll see what I can do, but actually I have seen this
sort of thing on some other rather fantastic sites. One
of them deals exclusively with Princess Diana and the
webmaster has established links to some of my pages. Her
site is beautiful really -- some of the text is the same
shade of brilliant red I prefer and against a black
background (with a very, very faint star field). She uses

Subject: RE: Reply to reply on Question about weighting
Thank you for your incisive and interesting reply.
It amazes me that you have the abilities you do, and
still have the time to deal with questions from the
"laity" in such detail! I only located
your page by accident
once, (and I had great difficulty using the same search
engine to do it again, after a system crash. I
would _never_ have found it without serious
searching!). I am so glad I bookmarked it!
In short, I think that you may be unique on the Web, and
perhaps in the world. I have never elsewhere heard
of a prophet who calls his shots in such detail, so far
in advance, and who achieves such accuracy.
May I deal with some issues that arise from your reply to
1. The question that your Diana dilemma poses, and that
also posed by the Jeane Dixon is "have you ever had
such a premonition about a person - and been
wrong?" Of course we will recall when we were
correct, but suppose (for example) you had a feeling
about Queen Elizabeth or Pete Seeger? (I choose 2
reasonably well-known figures of older age to whom death
did not (yet) happen.) Had you had such an
experience as you did about Diana, you may only credit it
if it came to pass. So I now question, have you had
such premonitions - of whatever degree - about others?
You should have, of course. As
the events are mutable, so is the possibility that such
"failed" premonitions _might_ have come to pass
but for some lucky intervention.
The implications of the answer are quite serious.
If you have never (or very rarely) had "failed"
premonitions, then you may be in error about the ability
of the universe to bypass certain events. In other
words, you are more important than you think, if you can
see things that will occur. And it MAY be that even
if you had spoken to Diana, you could not have prevented
- at least in this universe - the event.
2. Another issue that I consider important is that your
base-7 science/instinct may run in cycles itself. I
note that you have averted to that in your reply.
Perhaps you yourself are subject to the same rules?
3. This leads me to a little more complexity. As
you probably know or have guessed from the e-mail, I am a
lawyer- what you in America would call a trial
attorney. I litigate mostly family law and criminal
defence matters, and am generally quite intent about
testing evidence! I also have a personal
"hobby" interest in prophecy. And I know
a little about mathematics. I therefore wonder if
you might not "test" your basic numerology
theories by trying your results against different base
numbers or periods. OK, so conventional numerology
works "so". You get better results than
conventional means suggest you should. Perhaps the
convention is at fault?
Why confine your math to base-10? Your 7 year
system is a base-10 creation, but would you find it more
rewarding to work in binary, or base 3 etc? I don't
know, it just seemed an idea to consider.
I do not say that you should chuck standard numerology
out - but perhaps there is a problem with it that you are
on the verge of discovering? Perhaps for instance, you
should work in other units than years to guide
yourself? Just a thought!
4. And an allied thought. Is there any merit in
using the Jewish, Moslem, Chinese etc calendars? To
be sure, they are usually annually based. But they do not
start at the same times each year. Perhaps with
different start/end periods, each new Year would have
more meaning? Why is the arbitrary 1 January more
important that the September Jewish calender, the
February (Lunar) Chinese calender or the totally
unpredictable Islam calender, which is not related to the
5. I agree with your thoughts on head/spirit
prophecy. Indeed, I think that you are very much in
tune with a basic truth. Perhaps the "wrong
calls" you make are related to your encyclopaedic
knowledge of past and present events rather than the
actual prediction. Some say Nostradamus himself had
that problem. I think you are aware of similar
problems in earlier writing where you sensibly refuse to
look into other numerology sites for fear of
contamination of theory?
6. OK for the colours! - I did not know their
significance. (I always learn something from
reading you!) But I still maintain that the
TimesNew Roman is hard to read at that speed on my
system! Sorry. I would prefer arial or
bookman TrueType (I think). 14 point is OK. Perhaps
it is the speed of the marquee that is a problem?
I hope you don't consider these ramblings
presumptuous. I am just
so impressed with your record that I wanted to help!
* * * *
You have been kind with your words of encouragement and
support. Thank you!
I have been giving some considerable thought about your
first question over the last few days.
Unfortunately, I cannot recall ever having had a
conscious experience (premonition) quite like the one I
have conveyed regarding Diana (however, see my remarks on
Madonna below). It is true, however, that I have had
strong convictions regarding my dream-related visions
(and what could be more dramatic an example than the
March 1996 suicide bombing in Tel Aviv where I awoke from
a dream where bloodied bodies and shattered glass were
strewn about the street and sidewalk only to turn on the
television and see the same exact thing being reported?).
Apparently, I am not one to which waking visions are the
norm (or I am too high-strung in my conscious state to
experience them). Still, I will reflect on this
further. After all, what is the 'hunch' or
'gut-feeling' we all experience at some time or
another? If I were to regard those as premonitions
then I would have to say most have been correct or
My 'feeling' that the Pope would be murdered if he ever
visited Iraq goes back to 1993. The result thus far has
been that twice he has planned such a trip and twice the
trip has been canceled at the last minute because it was
considered too dangerous. I had a 'hunch' when I was
watching Nicole Kidman on television last summer that she
was in some sort of danger (I assumed her LIFE was in
jeopardy). However, what actually ended up happening was
that she suffered a broken arm during an accident while
on the set of a film she was shooting. A week before his
death in May 1998, I 'knew' that Frank Sinatra would be
dead by August. But then again, the man had been in and
out of the hospital so many times this could have been a
product of reasoning rather than premonition.
One week after Diana's funeral, I remarked to a friend
that I thought President Bill Clinton would be next --
that he would be assassinated in November 1998. However,
in September 1997, who would have thought the president
would be the second in all of US history to be IMPEACHED
(in December 1998 -- one month off)? Who had ever heard
of Monica Lewinsky? Even the Paula Jones case was on the
backburner. And of course I can hardly forget the sight
of his panicked face as he was shouting to a crowd of
pressing Ghanese to get back lest he be crushed or the
shock that went through me when I first heard of the US
Capitol Shooting and then discovered that the killer had
called in death threats to Clinton in the past (Clinton
was away on vacation at the time). Indeed, Bill Clinton
logged more close calls to his life in 1998 then in any
other year of his presidency -- virtually one per month.
My only other current 'strong feeling' revolves around
the early death and possible murder of pop megastar
Madonna -- and there is a page-in-progress on my website
dealing with this. The thought hit me around
February/March 1998 after I listened to the song 'Mer
Girl' on the 'Ray of Light' CD for the first time. It was
a very eerie experience. About a week ago, only several
days after writing on my page about the potential future
danger that might be posed by Robert Dewey Hoskins, the
man who stalked Madonna in 1995 and nearly carried out
his plan of murdering her by 'slicing her throat from ear
to ear' (an individual we had heard nothing more about
since he was sentenced in March 1996, I may add), it was
reported in the news that the imprisoned Hoskins was
repeating his intentions to kill Madonna when he is
released. Had he not said anything, he would have been up
for parole automatically in 2004 and possibly 2002 with
good behaviour (the year I am concerned about). Now,
unless he escapes, it appears he will serve his full
sentence until 2004. I should add that another Hoskins
attack was only one of the things I feared might
happen. I still believe Madonna remains in grave
danger for a number of reasons. Still, this is a
'feeling' that cannot be proved unless it happens and it
is my objective to see that it doesn't.
As I mentioned before, I believe that some events are
predestined and cannot be changed and others are
preventable. Unfortunately, I do not know which is the
case in any specific instance. Therefore I treat
each prediction as one that CAN be changed (even if it
MIGHT be one that cannot).
Regarding your second question: yes, I personally
feel bound to the seven-year cycle (or multiples of
seven). I was the first guinea pig I tested my system on.
Then, in 1996, I decided to apply it to the greater world
to see if its influence was universal. I believed that it
was, but for 1997 I wanted to see if it could apply to
social issues and especially to prominent individuals. I
predicted the Heaven's Gate mass suicide (although I did
not know what the name of the cult would be), a string of
murders over the summer that would result in the death of
a male celebrity and possibly a female one as well (this
was carried out by Andrew Cunanon and the male celebrity
victim was Gianni Versace, although I did not know who
the victim would be). You can therefore appreciate how
greatly my fear increased as August approached and with
it the 'Marilyn Monroe scenario' -- especially after the
premonition I had regarding Diana.
Regarding your third question, I did try out other
numbers both before 1996 and since 1996. For a long time,
since reading and absorbing a book on conventional
numerology in 1983, I had believed that events in my life
were supposed to replicate in intervals of 9 years (or
multiples thereof). I also attempted to apply 9 to world
events. You see, conventional (that includes classical)
numerology is composed of 9 basic numbers -- each with
its own properties. That is true numerology -- the type
most practice. But 9 has never rung true as a way of
divining future events. Accuracy rate using a 9 system is
roughly only 10% to 20% successful. That's as good as it
ever gets when it gets THAT good (astrology is even
Still, conventional numerology is useful in other ways.
And, as I mentioned in my last letter, it does have some
value when used in tandem with my base 7 system. The
example I gave was the value of the number 2 (as
calculated in conventional numerology). When one reduces
a date to its basic number, it can reveal what the
characteristics of that day may be. As you recall, I said
that 2, in its worst influence, equals death (or a
Before 1996, I also experimented with many other numbers.
Anything less than a 3 would be silly. For single
integers nothing worked well or at all except 7. I also
tried a large number of double integers (especially 11,
12, 13, 17, 19, 20, 21, 26, 27, 28, etc.) Some of these
held promise until I eventually discovered that the ones
that held promise were, themselves, multiples of 7 (14,
21, 28, 35, 42, 49, etc.). On occasion there does
seem to be something about 11, 17, 19, and 26. But, like
9, accuracy is at a very low percentage.
By the way, I realise I am using base 10 mathematics. I
only call my system 'Base 7' because 7 (AND ITS
MULTIPLES, I can't stress that enough) is the rock upon
which I base my system. Its just a 'fancy' name, in other
words (I have to call my system SOMETHING).
Regarding the calendars. You pose an interesting
From a Judeo-Christian perspective, if God WERE to use a
human calendar, it would probably be the Hebrew one.
Since the Jewish New Year begins in September, it is not
surprising that there have been so many of what I call
'autumnal crises' -- not just in the Middle East -- but
all over the world. The last four months of many, but
certainly not all, years seem to have some sort of
dangerous, crisis-provoking, or deadly quality about
them. Here are some of the highlights:
September - December
October 1912 - Outbreak of First Balkan War (obstensibly,
this was the TRUE beginning of World War I).
November 1917 - The Bolshevik Revolution sweeps Russia
and ushers in the era of Communist rule and the formation
of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.
October 1929 - Stock Market Crash triggers worldwide
September 1931 - Japanese invasion of Manchuria.
October 1935 - Italy invades Ethiopia.
September 1, 1939 - Hitler invades Poland, the opening of
World War II according to most historians (actually, I
believe World Wars I and II were the same war with a
troubled twenty-year 'armistice' in between -- but that's
December 7, 1941 - Japan bombs Pearl Harbor, drawing the
United States into the Second World War on both European
and Pacific fronts.

Still, after all of this, even many

The Chinese New Year also seems to have an impact:
but mostly only on events impacting East Asia.

Yes, after all of this, even these
Chinese lunar new year 'periods' are bound to a base 7
system of prediction:
1951, 1965, 1972, 1979, and 1993. 1968, 1975, 1989, and
Well, about the fonts. There is
nothing I can do about the type of font the marquees use
in FrontPage Express. In fact I don't really know
WHAT font the marquees are using -- only that there is
only one. I do not particularly like the font, but
it is the one I am forced to use. There is no way to
change it. I have, however, if you haven't already
noticed, slowed the scrolling speed of the marquees down
from 7 to 5 on the Year 2000 Page [Part One]. I still
have to slow down the few others that are on a few other
pages. Hope this helps.
Hope my answers were helpful too. But as I said, the
system is still an experiment-in-progress. I am still
asking myself questions such as why about every other
year I make one prediction that ends up being fulfilled
one calendar year late or even premature. Then there is
the question of the unprecedented event that has no
historical basis. I can tell you that I have dreamt
visions that have absolutely no basis in world history. I
have dreamed of a close encounter with another planet
(not a collision or asteroid slam) and great earth
changes and electrical storms when it happens. I
have walked the suburbs, empty houses everywhere, paint
peeling, pavement cracked, an occasional shadow of a
human being running in the distance, sometimes with
greenish snow falling and covering the roofs, trees, and
ground. I have seen a time, probably centuries from now,
when there is neither a sun nor a moon but a bronze
colour lighting the sky 24-hours a day. I have seen wars
fought in the heavens between armadas of UFOs. And this
is only a small sample. There is no precedent for these
And perhaps, rather than visions,
these are only wild imaginings. The problem is they are
repetitive like my dream visions are.
I don't believe I will ever reach 100% accuracy with my
system. That, I believe, is impossible. Because there are
at least two random forces at work and these are the
human will to change and God as a force that can break
the world or an individual out of their base 7
prison whenever He so desires it.
Hope you enjoyed this little book of a letter! Again, if
you find anything you wish to focus on further please do
so. And of course write about anything else that may be
