A prediction is when one gives information in advance, usually based on special knowledge.
Why´d you ask?
Sir Winston told me that you humans are always predicting things and that most of the time, your predictions turn out false. If that were true; what a waste of time. Are humans able to see into the future?
We cats can´t because we only live life in the moment.
We make predictions because we like to plan ahead. I´m not sure about Sir Winstons notion about human predictions turning out exactly the opposite most of the time but there may be some truth in his surmise.
I just find it interesting that humans seem to love bombarding other humans with figures and statistics and later, human predictions seem to be often off key. You seem to all forget one very important factor to your predictions.
That´s right Mr Midnight. Even though humans use the latest technology, weather seems to be very difficult to predict. Some of the time you´ll be correct in your assumptions but then again, you are often incorrect as well.
Humans are fans of numbers and will therefore, often place enormous emphasis upon their economic predictions.
Which sounds a bit daft to my ears. How can your governments “know” the economic situation of their countries a few years ahead. I´m aware that you humans, just as us cats, are not fond of change, but informing the populace about the state of the nation years ahead seems to be foolhardy. There are too many variables – even for humans.
I suppose it has something to do with “power”. Economic predictions seem to influence world markets and predicting “what will be” may help short-term investments. In my opinion, modern-day predictions do not really have much in common with reality anyway, but then again, the modern world does tend to live in a comfortable, dreamlike state.
Depending upon the circumstances, predictions are probably “created” with which to either soothe or agitate the general-public. They are most probably “created” with which to influence decision-making.
There are many organisations, such as the OECD or various other Rating Agencies, which continually predict what will happen. However, whereas some of their predictions turn out true, some do not, with many “experts” later having to amend their “predictions” when reality finally sets in.
I often found it interesting that Governments will often inform us about how many people will be unemployed or about the economic growth rate two or three years ahead but so often, their predictions seem to fall short of their fantasies.
They don´t have to take it seriously but many answers to life and a persons characteristics can be found hidden within the numbers.
You see, this Pythagoras chappie was quite ahead of his time and among other things, he used ancient Egyptian wisdom to prove that our planet and life are in a continual state of numeric cycles. Based upon this philosophy, he fashioned the fascinating topic of modern numerology.
Human religious scriptures don´t really “prove” anything either but most people believe in their beliefs which have been passed down from generation to generation – and without valid proof. Why shouldn´t humans be a bit more open and take a glimpse at numerology as well? As I´ve already said, one doesn´t have to take it seriously.
They can check their birth chart, their ruling number, their day number and even the numbers which are “missing” in their personality with which to eventually gain harmony. It may appear like a lot of old humbug but it´s still interesting.
Numerology is based on a 9 year cycle, with high peaks and low peaks. If one is aware that all things in life require time to rest and restore then humans could then possibly understand why it is quite ridiculous to believe that economies and personal wealth should always be on the rise.
I mean, just look at what is happening to modern societies beloved money. Most people are losing money but they are obviously not really concerned. People would obviously sooner carry on believing in their modern structures and at the same time, remain blind to their banks and Governments. Banks and Governments are not stupid and are also aware of this fact. That is why they carry on “eating ” the savings of their citizens at an enormous rate, (Interest rates, etc.) and get away with it. It´s easy for them to do so.
However, as mentioned above, all “things in life” are in constant movement and will swing from highs to lows. Banks and Governments also fall into this natural law of life and will eventually, also get their comeuppance. Modern societies taken-for-granted habit to continually accumulate debt with which to keep their “systems” going will obviously, eventually lead to a destabilisation of future, modern lifestyles.
If company takings and economies are always on the rise then it would be quite reasonable to assume that it is only because of artificial interfurrrence. Humans are good at interfurrring with things. All things are part of the rhythmic process of life and will therefore require a time of rest with which to gain new heights.
A shame most of you humans are oblivious to this basic piece of knowledge. Your lives would become that much richer if you stepped out of the artificial cogs of life and attempted to embrace the true cycle of life. But of course, every soul is on their own path and must therefore, “experience” life as they wish it to be.
All this talk about cycles has given me an appetite. I´m not keen on cycling (my paws can´t touch the pedals) but I´ve seen how tired and hungry daddy gets when he gets back from a cycle ride.
I predict that it´ll be that stuff out of the strange red and yellow tins AGAIN, but of course, I could be wrong. 🙂
