Certain themes of visions by prophets would have been created by regions of their brain. Studies by Oliver Sachs has shown that types of hallucinations – even art – comes from certain brain regions. For example, with certain medications or stimulation, whether it be stress, sleep or illness, excited regions may create or imagine certain patterns, including abstractions, colors, words, and even spiritual revelation.
This is why people initiate spiritual visions through meditation, or hypnosis. In waking life, this is why some people are predisposed towards painting portraits of faces, for example, whereas others prefer painting nature. Some personality types would have excited brain areas that could generate godlike visions. This would be the identical area for people when they were asleep.
In every crowd are certain persons who seem just like the rest, yet they bear amazing messages ~ Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
With certain cultural influences, many of these visions would surely also have repeating themes. For example, some central themes have existed world-wide for a long time. Water would be one that is universal. Some dream symbols are archetypal. The idea of a great flood occurring in a mountainous area would not have been a central theme to that particular indigenous persons in those regions, in as much as a drought would be to the Inuit people. Certain prophecies would have to have been region-specific.
Prophecies have to be taken within the context of our evolution. For example, I think the greatest fear for the cave dweller during the Paleolithic age would have been loss of his source of warmth, and his dreams would have been all about this life source. For the Agriculturist, during the dawn of our civilization and the Biblical ages, perhaps his fear would have been crops being wiped out by floods.
From the studies I have briefly done of Nostradamus, he was a political visionary who seemed to prefer revolutionary predictions. When carefully studied, his writing had little to do with anything with the ending of our modern times.
I do believe that many of the prophets, writers, poets were products of their time. So, when talking of great prophets, many of the great religions acknowledge, from their own sources, that each religion or culture, each civilization has their own recognized and sometimes shared prophet.
Science has not yet mastered prophecy. We predict too much for the next year and yet far too little for the next ten ~ Neil Armstrong
In my dreams for example, I have never ever dreamed of disastrous calamities. I have very specific dreams that are meant to change outcomes. In fact, calamities never announce themselves as ‘hellfire’ or any such terrifying imagery. Mainly, I used to dream of floods and natural disasters as I had been brought up on an education of ecologically friendly beliefs. So, this became my ‘dream view.’
Even with all of the overwhelming broadcasts of negativity in the mainstream media, the only omens I have seen were that from a wounded natural world, and from perhaps some of the humans I have dreamed of, and that of a sad and beaten spirit of nature – perhaps a more Shinto vision of the world. And that is all. Nothing of a great calamity.
I am saying, in some sense, that my predisposition to envision my future is different from yours. Perhaps this does mean that my prophecy or my vision is different from others and I hope it fits in with some of your own.
In fact, in my mind, humans have more of a presence into a future, perhaps millennia into the future, and we should guard never to fall into the trap of giving up due to bad news. Never be told that it is the end, never be driven to the medieval belief we are coming to a close, because that is a mythos, an outmoded archetypal belief, just another fable. And, in truth, the only thing that will engulf us all is the eventual expansion of our galaxy in a few billion years. Yet, that sounds a little too far off for me to settle for this being a deal breaker yet.
