See The Future - Looking Backwards


A Rabbi says
Isaiah states that to see
the future
we have to look backwards –
the Hebrew states
read the letters in reverse
of the first five books: Genesis to
Deuteronomy – the Torah
See Eliyahu’s experiment published in
1994 Statistical Science
- Equidistant Letter Sequences in Genesis –
rabbi names matched
dates of birth and death
against odds of
one in ten million

The Rotenberg-Rips computer program
is based on the Talmud:
everything has been foreseen
BUT freedom of action is given
as said physicist Feynman -
probabilities only
can be predicted
there a myriad possible futures
the outcome determined by US
predicted so long ago…

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
