8 unbelievable book predictions that have come true
Many fictional stories are created based on what the author expects for the future. Often this "wild" imagination turns out to be more realistic than we might expect. Often situations are raised to an extreme considered absurd for the period and shortly afterwards they have already become a reality and will even exceed what was expected. Human evolution is constant and with technology and advanced communication, development ends up being even faster. Their abilities grow up along with the development of understanding, technologies, events and so on.
If you want to know some prediction of your life, you can get it online. We recommend you to have a session with Kasamba's psychics and understand how technology is applied to the spiritual world.
While decades were needed to be able to change something in the past today only a few months can make that happen. And the imagination is even faster than that. Social aims for a not so distant future have already been present in works of art, books, films and series. Books, in particular, have already had a great deal of success in predicting events. Situations that once seemed like pure fantasy come true in the blink of an eye and that is exactly what we will talk about. The following books were able to describe situations that are real today even before they happen and deserve credit for creativity or even intuition.
Some of these books might be classified as psychic predictions. Depends on which angle we look at. Nostradamus predicted many things, many of which have become reality. In principle, the books below describe something that is not much different. The writers certainly have the basics of inspiration why they are able to predict things that will become reality in the future.
1 - The two moons of Mars - Gulliver's Travels
In the book Gulliver's Travels, or The Gulliver's Travels, published in 1726, author Jonathan Swift takes his main character to a strange world in which he will discover that Mars has two small moons. If that weren't enough, incredible descriptions of them, including their distance, are still made in the book. The amazing thing is that they were only discovered 151 years after the book was published. How he managed to predict that nobody knows.
2 - Atomic Bombs - The World Set Free
Huge mass destruction was described during the history of The World Set Free. Its author H. G. Wells predicts the appearance of a huge "grenade" with immense destructive power. In the book it is called the atomic bomb, as we know it today. It was only 31 years later that this became a reality through the Manhattan Project that attacked the Japanese city Hiroshima.
3 - Smartphones - 2001
One of the functions of these two devices is very well described in the book 2001. In it Arthur C. Clarke has the idea of a device that allows news to reach its owner instantly. People could read the news on it as soon as it was available, quickly and easily. The first Smartphone was created in 1994 and its improvements in the arrival of information only started very recently. Despite its name, the book was released in 1968, 26 years before the advent of technology.
4 - The Titanic disaster - The Titan Wreck
Morgan Robertson wrote the book The Wreck of the Titan, or The Wreck of the Titan, in 1898. In it a huge ship crashes into an iceberg and ends up sinking due to its collision. The most premonitory story described exactly what happened 14 years later with the Titanic. The circumstances of the book and the real story turned out to be strangely similar.
5 - Man going to the Moon - From Earth to the Moon
As much as conquering space and its extensions is an ancient human desire, this prediction carries a great mystery. In his book From the Earth to the Moon, From the Earth to the Moon, Frenchman Jules Verne described a large space weapon capable of sending projectiles to the Moon. Amazingly, the predictions did not stop there. The spacecraft that was launched just a century later had the same number of passengers and carried the same name, Apollo 11. Furthermore, it was still able to describe the sensation experienced due to the lack of gravity by the astronauts.
6 - Antidepressants - Brave New World
The author of the novel Brave New World, or Aldous Huxley, creates a world in which society is psychologically manipulated by his government. There, people start using a drug responsible for stimulating happiness called Soma. It would have been developed to reduce people's feelings of sadness and anxiety and bring greater emotional stability. It turns out that none of that existed at that time and the first experiments with antidepressants only happened two decades after the book was released.
7 - Credit Card - A Hundred Years from Now / Reviewing the Future
The utopian fiction story called Looking Backward, Hundred Years from Now / Revising the Future, created by Edward Bellamy developed a different method of payment for the time. In its history, people used cards with certain values to pay for things. People received an amount of money that was deposited directly on the cards and then used them as a form of payment. Credit card technology was only developed in 1950. The book was written in 1888, 62 years before cards appeared.
8. The future of communication – Foundation Series
In 1964, after visiting the gigantic New York World's Fair, writer Isaac Asimov, then 42, saw what he considered the first steps of a distant future. A future, more precisely, in 2014. Almost 50 years later, Asimov's accuracy in some of the points he decided to foresee is frightening. It is important to remember, of course, that the mission of clairvoyance is always very dangerous - the chances of making mistakes are enormous, and even today we make fun of those who did not have a very precise vision (well, just remember that Ballmer’s nostrad joke when talking about the possible failure of the iPhone is remembered today). Communications will combine sound and image, and you will see and hear the person you are calling. The screen can be used not only to see the people you call, but also to study documents and photographs, and to read excerpts from books. Synchronous satellites, hovering in space, will allow you to connect directly to any point on Earth, including Antarctic weather stations. Asimov was right to predict the future of telecommunications. The concept of video calling, of using the phone screen for other purposes, and of connecting the world through telephony, has been realized in the last 50 years.
Forecasters will always be there in every age. Some of them are no more than con artists and some of the others are truly capable of watching the future. Some of them predict based on scientific phenomena, others predict based on spiritual signs. What they can know might be useful as a guide for all of us in understanding how the predictions were created.
