Book: The meaning of one prediction
THE MEANING OF ONE PREDICTION
I believe that it is useful to a potential reader to learn something about my personality and background in order to better understand the content of this essay.
I was born in the year 1932 in Jewish non-religious family in the former capital of Russia which called at that time Leningrad. At that time and many years later Russia which called itself as the Soviet Union represented a severe dictatorship under total control of the general secretary of the Communist Party Iosef Stalin. An official goal of this society was the building of communism and whole large country was controlled to achieve this goal. Anyone who doubted in this goal , immediately was arrested and after a comedy of court was shot or sent to concentration camp in Siberia where he or she quickly died from heavy work or from hunger. All religious institutions like churches, synagogues , were destroyed or closed.
Only one permitted religion was allowed :the building of communism, which will bring everyone into the bright future in this life on the Earth. The only way of the children education at that time was a this official religion which was defined very well in one sentence:”Thank you , comrade Stalin ,for our happy life !”. At the years of war 1941-1945 I was relatively lucky being sent with boarding school to Siberia . My mental state after return to Leningrad in the 1945 possible to characterize with my suggestion to my mother to hang on in our room a picture of Stalin instead of the relatives pictures. All information about our country and world was coming from official newspapers and radio and ,of course, represented false picture of reality. But at that time I was not aware about it.
The critical year in my self-awareness was 1948. At that time I graduated from a high school and was trying to join the physical faculty of the Leningrad University . Although I was well prepared to pass introductory exams , I was given such questions which are far beyond of the high school programs. And I was not alone. All abiturients of Jewish nationality were not accepted to the University. I was shocked that in the Soviet Union the Jews discrimination was possible. However, my uncle, who had a similar experience in czarist Russia told me that in the czarist Russia there was an open rule that only three percents of Jews are allowed to join University , therefore everyone knew what to expect. If more than three percents of Jews passed the exams, which were identical for everyone, then a lottery between these people has been conducted to define the new students. He also said me that he was very indignant with official lie about equal rights for all people and official intentional prohibitions for Jews to join the University.
Since this time my attitude to the State and the Communist Party propaganda has been changed . I analyzed so called scientific and practical socialism as well as its embodiment in the Soviet Union. I learned to read the newspapers articles between the lines and how to find missing information. (Of course, I was getting help from “Voice of America” and British Broadcasting Corporation of that time). This comprehension took several years and brought me to very important conclusion. I understood that the whole Soviet Union is originated and was existing on a great lie .
This lie included political , economic , social and philosophical principles of the State. For instance, whole literature of the so called socialist realism was written by many authors in answer to requirements of the political situation ,which was defined in the next report of the General Secretary of the Communist Party. I learned to find the nuances of true in the mountains of lie. Since 1980 I live in the United States of America.
2. SCIENCE AND MYSTIZISM
As I wrote above I was not able to became a scientific researcher in physic . However, I found a time to be interested in the essence of World. In the Soviet Union there was only one permitted philosophy-materialism , which was mandatory for everyone. Only philosophers-materialists were accepted as precursors of future socialism and communism. Gradually, I started to doubt this confirmation, because I could not comprehend how total lie of the Soviet State and society may simultaneously exist with one true statement.
I became interested in extrasensory abilities of peoples and as very important part of these abilities-prophesies . I understood that if the prophesies predictions could be proved the whole World picture supposed to be changed. Some serious researchers were involved in these problems. One of this researchers was Genin(1) who at the end of the last century even visited Paris to read the Nostradamus prophesies in the books of 16 century. There is spacious literature regarding the Nostradamus prophesies . It is obvious that Nostradamus was a great prophet. However, there are also skeptics .They indicated that the Nostradamus prophesies are deprived of personal character . They also mentioned that whole history of humans is an history of wars, epidemics and crimes . So, if you predict something like this in the future there is a good chance that you are predicting a future correctly. But the supporters of the prophet Nostradamus responded that Nostradamus was not be able to personify his prophesies because he was trying to avoid threats to his life and life of his family members. This argumentation continuous many years after death of Nostradamus.
I would like to suggest to consider as an prophet the another man -Wolf Messing (1899-1974) .He was psychic and prophet. By the beginning of the Second world war he was very famous person. Gitler promised huge awards for capture of Messing because he predicted the Germany’s defeat. However, Messing was able to escape from Poland to the Soviet Union in 1939. As a foreigner and Jew he was under strong observation of the KGB(Committee of State Security). However, information about very famous psychic reached Stalin and he requested to bring Messing to Moscow. Stalin personally checked Messing’s abilities and gave him an apartment in Moscow. A lot of books is written about Messing after his death in 1974. However , the best book is written by Tatiana Lungina “VOLF MESSING –CHELOVEK-ZAGADKA” (Volf Messing –the mystery man).This book was published by publishing house HERMITAGE(2). The author knew Messing more than 30 years. She was a medical doctor and close friend of Messing. The book was written after Lungina’s emigration to the USA in 1982.Therefore the book is free from censorship and is absolutely truthful .I cite fragment about tragedy in Messing’s family:
“The Messing’s wife Anna Mikhailovna got very sick-breast cancer .After regular treatment-surgery for breast removal, chemotherapy and radiation therapy she returned home from the hospital . Once she was visited by famous in medical world doctors-member of Soviet Academy Blochin ,who was a head of Oncological Institute and academic Kassirsky ,hematologist, widely known in the medical circles of the world.
It was the beginning of June; the smell of the lime tree flowers permeates air next to open window .The stars of medicine are sitting next to Anna Milhailovna bed. It looks like they feel badly for the unsuccessful treatment .In order to have a rest for Anna Mikhailovna the visitors ,Messing and I went to the kitchen .(it was typical one bedroom Moscow apartment).Wolf Messing couldn’t sit down ,he walked back and fourth . Doctor Blokhin broke the silence . He said: “Wolf Grigorievich ,don’t endure too much .You know, sometimes it happens that patient is very sick, but suddenly his health improving and he lives long time .I remember…”
Messing interrupted him and screamed:” Do not talk to me this way! I am not a boy! I am Messing. Don’t tell me stupid words! I know that she will not recover. She will die.”
He was trembling, red spots covered his face and it seemed that he will lose consciousness
Suddenly, he calmed down standing for a minute in the middle of kitchen and said: “She will die on August 2 at the 7 p.m.”
After that he relaxed and calmly sit down. I looked at Blokhin to appreciate his reaction .The famous doctor was shocked from this supernatural prognosis. The rumors about this prediction become known in medical and scientific circles of Moscow. Many people with mixed feelings were waiting the fatal day. August 1 is my birthday and to-morrow… I would like to cross over the next day , but August 2 stepped up .
In the morning of August 2 I got invitation to visit Messings . It was complete silence in the apartment .Sometimes the phone rings and people send a hello to Anna Mikhailovna . She was in full consciousness , she thanks people who called and nothing mentioned the close end of her life. After 6 p.m. , she start to talk more than usual but distinct and clearly. I was replacing her nurse, which went home. At 6.30 she asked me to bring a glass of water .The fear filled me and grows with each minute.
At the 7 p.m. Anna Mikhailovna passed away. Her death was predicted with accuracy of 1 minute.”
The natural question about this and many others episodes :
Is there some scientific explanation of telepathy and premonitions ?”
I can only to repeat this question :”Is some scientific explanation of this prediction?’ There is also another question :”Why many famous and endowed with power people like Churchill, Franklin Roosevelt, Reagan ,Abraham Lincoln and others consulted with psychics?
Let us conduct a thought experiment. We live in four dimensional world , including three space dimensions and one time dimension. We can imagine thinking beings who live on a flat surface .Therefore they understand only two space dimensions ,the third space dimension is unfamiliar to them. For instance , if it is raining they can only see the moistening of the plane . Imagine that suddenly a smart psychic appears among these beings .This psychic can feel the third space dimension. Because of this ability the psychic can warn the beings living on the flat surface that he sees that a thunderstorm is coming before a flat surface became wet and he also can show these beings which areas of flat surface will not be affected by storm. In the consciousness of these flat’s beings this psychic is a prophet, who predicted the future events. Let us consider an another example. The deep-sea animals also have several senses which allowed them to live and feel themselves comfortably in the area of their residence. But if a thinking animal appears among them , this animal may understand that it not necessary whole world is like deep-sea and there are some another reality of the world which is inaccessible to creatures of the deep-sea world.
The conclusion of these and some others examples is very simple: the reality of the world could not be explained only by our fife senses.
This was determined by great philosopher Immanuel Kant more than 200 years before our time. He believed that everything we aware with are located only in the space and time dimensions. Besides these dimensions we are not able to aware anything with our senses. However if we are accepting his assertion as a truthful we have also accept his idealistic view of nature around us. He was convinced in existence of an immortal soul and the God as a creator of the universe. In his opinion the God exist outside space and time.
The similar views expressed the Nobel –Prize winner Erwin Schroedinger (1887-1961).He was the author of many works in various fields of physics and the creator of the central in quantum physic “Schroedinger cat” experiment. He wrote (3) “The scientific picture of the real world around me is very deficient. It gives a lot of factual information , puts all our experience in a magnificently consistent order ,but it is ghastly silent about all and sundry that is really near to our heart ,that really matters to us . It cannot tell us a word about red and blue , bitter and sweet ,physical pain and physical delight; it knows nothing of beautiful and ugly ,good or bad , God and eternity . Science sometimes pretends to answer questions in these domains , but the answers are very often so silly that we are not inclined to take them seriously “.
I believe that an another important hypothesis to an explanation of the Messing’s prophesy was done by the University of London physicist David Bohm(3) . He suggested that universe is at heart a phantasm, a gigantic and splendidly detailed hologram. Let me briefly remind to a reader an essence of hologram . ( A hologram is a three-dimensional photograph made with the aid of a laser .To make a hologram, the object to be photographed, is first bathed in the light of a laser beam. Then a second laser beam is bounced off the reflected light of the first and the resulting interference pattern (the area where the two laser beam commingle) is captured on film .When the film is developed ,it looks like a meaningless swirl of light and dark lines .But as soon as the developed film is illuminated by another laser beam , a three –dimensional image of the original object appears. The three-dimensionality of such images is not the only remarkable characteristic of holograms. If a hologram of a rose is cut in half and then illuminated by a laser , each half will still be found to contain the entire image of the rose. Indeed , even if the halves are divided again ,each snippet of film will always be found to contain a smaller but intact version of the original image .Unlike normal photographs ,every part of a hologram contains all the information possessed by the whole .The “whole in every part” nature of a hologram provides us with an entirely new way of understanding organization and order .)
To enable people to better visualize that he means , Bohm offers the following example .Imagine an aquarium containing a fish . Imagine also that you are unable to see the aquarium directly and your knowledge about it and what it contains comes from two television cameras , one directed at the aquarium front and the other directed at its side . As you stare at the two television monitors , you might assume that the fish on each of the screens are separate entities .After all, because the cameras are set at different angles ,each of the images will be slightly different .But as you continue to watch the two fish, you will eventually become aware that there is a certain relationship between them. When one turns, the other also makes a slightly different but corresponding turn ,when one faces the front ,the other always faces toward the side .If you remain unaware of the full scope of the situation ,you might even conclude that the fish must be instantaneously communicating with one another ,but this is clearly not the case .This ,says Bohm, is precisely what is going on between the subatomic particles in the 1982 important experiment , performed at the university of Paris by physicist Alain Aspect . Aspect and his team discovered that under certain circumstances subatomic particles such as electrons are able to instantaneously communicate with each other regardless of the distance separating them . It doesn’t matter whether they are 10 feet or 10 billions miles apart. Somehow each particle always seems know what the other is doing .
David Bohm believed Aspect findings imply that objective reality does not exist , that despite its apparent solidity the universe is a gigantic hologram(4) .
If the apparent separateness of subatomic particles is illusory , it means that at a deeper level of reality all things in the universe are infinitely interconnected ,which Biohm called implicate order. The electrons in the carbon atom in the human brain are connected to the subatomic particles that comprise every salmon that swims ,every heart that beats and every star that shimmers in the sky . Part of reality, which we can feel with our senses, Bohm called explicate order.
In a holographic universe ,even time and space could no longer be viewed as fundamental .Because concepts such as location in a universe in which nothing is truly separate from anything else ,time and three-dimensional space ,like the images of the fish on the TV monitors ,would have to be viewed as projections of this deeper order or projection from the new dimension .At its deeper level there is a sort of superhologram in which the past ,present and future all exist simultaneously .This suggests that given the proper tools it might even be possible to reach into the superholographic level of reality and see scenes from forgotten past as well as from future .
If you share one of two above written approaches to the prophesies explanation you should accept the existence of reality of the World beyond our senses, beyond space and time. Therefore , you are inevitable coming to acknowledgement of the human soul immortality .This is something of accepting of the priority consciousness over material World.
There are another group of scientists and dilettantes who have different opinion related to considered subject. These people preferred the materialistic view on the World reality. They assert that the whole universe is the reality which is given to us in our senses. It means that if we are not feeling something this substance does not exist. However , if you ask someone of this people to explain psychic phenomena ,described above, the answer will be simple : Messing is a cheater of the spectators and author of the book about Messing T.Lungina is a liar . I totally disagree with this explanation because in the country I was born and in the modern Russia the total cheating of the population is the normal way of authorities to maintain their power. My living experience , my intuition and knowledge are telling me that Messing was absolutely truthful as well as Lungina’s book. Therefore ,I personally prefer to believe in the idealistic version of the prediction explanation.
The separation of philosophy to idealistic and materialistic is very old ,started in the ancient Greece. It is sufficient to recall arguments between Plato and Democritus . I believe that modern quantum physic proved that ideas of Plato were truthful.
(I meant the Alain Aspect experience and the quantum state of objects )However, this consideration requires the separate analysis
