Are You Psychic, or Are You Just Intelligent and Thinking Ahead?
Since the beginning of time people have been interested in the future. So, owing to the fact that predicting the future has always been interesting and much needed, there have always been people who claimed that they could predict the future. Some of these people were shunned, while some of them were celebrated as geniuses. However, most of them were not considered very serious in their own lifetime – probably because you cannot tell whether someone really can predict the future until the future actually happens.
Psychic or Logic?
For the better part, these people who claimed to be able to foresee things were visionaries and people with a strong sense of logic. Of course, there have always been those who were simply mad, but I am not interested in talking about them here. If we think about it for a minute, most of the things that happened in history could have easily been predicted, if only more people had bothered to think about the future in a purely logical and realistic manner – and many people actually did this. For instance, was it that hard to predict WW II after WW I, or generally a war that would include most of the important and influential countries of the world? When we think about it, this prediction was, at one time, more an inevitability than a prediction.
Scientists or Psychics?
Furthermore, many famous and often quoted scientists can be considered psychic, as they were great visionaries who deliberately ignored everything that was known in science at the time, in order to come up with new inventions that would later become standard and widely used. So, Albert Einstein and Nikola Tesla can both be considered psychic, as they knew something no one else did, and they had a vision of what the world will look like in the future – they influenced the future, as well as predicted it.
Albert Einstein Had More than One Great Prediction
Tell me - is this not a pretty accurate and scary prediction of the future? It is one of the most commonly used Einstein’s quotes, and it is painfully obvious what the genius scientist wanted to say with this. Albert Einstein had a lot of great predictions, and you can read about a particularly interesting one here. So, should we call Mr. Einstein a scientist or a psychic?
Nikola Tesla and Leonardo da Vinci Shared the Same Dream
Both Tesla and da Vinci were extraordinarily interesting and eccentric people, and they were both great visionaries and psychics, so to say. Among all other dreams, they both had a dream to build a superior flying machine. Although much different in nature, both of these flying machines would be seen as impossible, ridiculous or simply unexciting by their contemporaries. So, it is again easy to see how two prominent scientists and inventors were in fact looking into the future and seeing their inventions used by people in the future.
So, the next time you think about the future, try to think about the present and draw some logical conclusions. Who knows, maybe you are psychic – it costs nothing to try to fail, right?
