Tomas Menes prophesies Dolfuss's death
Type of Spiritual Experience
Thomas Menes was a Spaniard specialising in prophecy. Despite his claim and the claims of others that he had an impressive record of predicting future events, according to Mircea Eliade in Occultism, Witchcraft, and Cultural Fashions: Essays in Comparative Religion, ‘most of his predictions proved erroneous’.
One, however, did not and what marks it out is that the event was very close to the prediction, meaning that there was a high probability - if simulation is the means by which prophecy is made [that is using knowledge of the current state of the universe and working forward using simulation to get to a conclusion] – that all the states in place at the time and the paths and actions so certain that there was a high probability that the event would happen.
If we are indeed governed by the Great Work and there is a definite plan for certain events, then our actions are to a large extent engineered to achieve the desired aim.
In events which were planned to happen we are all puppets.
