See The Future - Looking Backwards - Poem by Margaret Alice

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…
