Most prophecy is of this nature – a simple extrapolation of someone’s rather predictable behavior. We’d like to imagine that we are surprising mysteries when often, someone could set a clock by our patterns.
If you asked me, I’d say that my writing times are erratic – that you couldn’t predict when and where you’d find me with my notebook and pen. But twice now, when I set my alarm for timed writing, I’ve found that I am starting at the EXACT same time, like To The Minute. I am clearly much more predictable than I thought.
There was a period in my life in which I saw psychics fairly often. I can’t quite as easily explain their predictions and suggestions. I don’t know how they could have gotten enough information to make an educated guess. If they were somehow putting on a show, it was a very smart productive show for me. In one case, it led to my getting a job I then held for 14 years. No career counselor I ever had had as good a track record. I find I don’t much care where that psychic got her information. On balance she helped me so much that even if it had been on elaborate ruse, I wouldn’t feel betrayed at all, still just grateful.
