As part of her study on psychics and extra-sensory-experiences (ESE), Flo tried to determine how many psychics predicted events that actually came true. She finally admitted the field was too big to narrow down to just hits vs. misses, with the misses clearly in the lead. But she found famous psychic/astrologer Jeane Dixon’s prediction about the future alarming.
“She said the world was going to end in 2020. And, gosh, I hope not,” Flo sighed.
Although if you looked at it realistically, 2020 now seems like a pretty good candidate for the noun, dystopia, at the very least, with the Pandemic, Political Turmoil, Protests and Unrest worldwide.
“Well, what do you see, then,” I asked her. I could tell she was reluctant to predict anything, unless she heard it first from one of her visiting Apparition Ghosts.
‘Well, Old Hattye said, “Once upon a time, there were two Popes. And, for a time, history’s gonna repeat itself. You’re gonna have two Presidents.
“I really didn’t think too much of that idea – because Hattye came to me about another subject. And we moved on from Popes and Presidents to Poisons. She really knows a lot about cyanide.”
“So are you comfortable making that a prediction, now, in 2015 – five years before the world’s end?”
“Predictions are not my glass of scotch,” Flo said. “But if you insist, I will. Hattye seems to know a lot about a lot. And, so long as you’re not quoting me or making it public, then yeah, I’ll go with two Presidents. But remember, I’m a Medium, not a future-teller. Got that?”
Flo looked at me, as if she knew it was really hard for me to keep a secret.
And it was.
