PROPHECY may vary between being an intellectual amusement and a serious occupation; serious not only in its intentions, but in its consequences. For it is the lot of prophets who frighten or disappoint to be stoned. But for some of us moderns, who have been touched with the spirit of science, prophesying is almost a habit of mind. Science is very largely analysis aimed at forecasting. The test of any scienti c law is our veri cation of its anticipations. The scienti c training develops the idea that whatever is going to happen is really here now–if only one could see it. And when one is taken by surprise the tendency is not to say with the untrained man, “Now, who’d ha’ thought it?” but “Now, what was it we overlooked?” Everything that has ever existed or that will ever exist is here–for anyone who has eyes to see. But some of it demands eyes of superhuman penetration.
