Since the beginning of time, people have always been interested in knowing what the future holds for them. The oracle at Delphi, Tarot cards, astrology, and ancient seers such as Nostradamus have all been a testimony for this ever-increasing need to know a little something about tomorrow.
Today, there are many self-proclaimed seers everywhere. People have responded to this phenomenon differently. Some believe in it, others deny it as mere lies and trickery. It is irrefutable that some people such as political analysts could predict future actions, but sometimes, a prediction is so unquestionable that people either call it coincidence or divine intervention.
During the cold war, Russia and the United States founded some centers dedicated for the study of predictions and future seeing among other related phenomena such as remote viewing and astral projection. One of the scientists that worked on these projects in the US was Dr. Hal Puthoff. He obtained many interesting results the vast majority of which are still classified. One of the most interesting explanations for this phenomenon is a certain particle called “Tachyon”.
By definition, a Tachyon is any hypothetical particle with a negative mass squared that always travels faster than the speed of light. Although this particle is hypothetical, its existence was proven by scientists in the Soviet Union. According to Albert Einstein, in his Special theory of Relativity, no particle can accelerate to exceed the speed of light. But, physicists such as Olexa-Myron Bilaniuk, V. K. Deshpande, E. C. George Sudarshan, and Gerald Feinberg concluded that Einstein’s theory disproves that a particle can exceed the speed of light but, it does not mean that particles that already travel at a speed faster than the speed of light do not already exist.
In another theory, Einstein says that light bends when it passes close to a massive object such as a planet. And, if something travels faster than the speed of light, it can pass through the curve caused by the lights bending. After penetrating this curve, this object could end up in a different time or space.
So, Tachyons, being faster than light, can penetrate the light’s curvature and end up in different places and/or different times. Therefore, Tachyons are always traveling to and fro through time and space. However, there is one more element missing for this theory to be complete: How can people see the future?
Dr. Puthoff theorized that these Tachyons have photographic properties. They can store a photo up to a certain time before they release it to store another one. So, they can bring pictures form the future or the past and from different places or different planets maybe. What completes this theory is that some people’s eyes are hypersensitive to these particles. When a Tachyon holding a picture hits the person’s eye, this person glimpses what the Tachyon holds. With some practice, this person could become able to hold this picture for a long time and eventually memorize it.
The picture that the seer sees could be completely meaningless. It could be a picture from the past, a picture of something that is happening is some person’s house, or a picture of something happening on a different planet in a different galaxy. But, with a bit of luck, the seer could glimpse the future. Another thing that is important in a seer is to possess a vast amount of knowledge of people and places. When a seer gets a picture, the rest depends on his own knowledge and interpretation. What he sees could be very different from what he says. He could misunderstand the picture or explain it in an unclear way. Therefore, when a seer has a significant amount of knowledge of people and places, the chances of his misplacing or misinterpreting the picture become slimmer and his predictive accuracy becomes greater.
This is one of the most interesting theories that explain predictions scientifically but still, not all self-proclaimed seers can be trusted, and not all of them are to be dismissed. All in all, no matter where or when we are, people will always be interested in hearing what a seer has for them.
