Over lunch of homemade siomai, leftover eggplant torta and chicken menudo, Alex talked about a strange dream she had about a school project that we organized and how it was sabotaged. In her dream, the event takes place on September 26 but, after the sabotage, she resolves to go back to September 21 to somehow make things right. I don’t know how those two dates are significant to Alex but, to me, September 21 will always be the anniversary of the declaration of Martial Law.
Probably prompted by the seemingly paranormal tune of Alex’s dream, Sam asked: “Ma, nabasa mo ‘yung babae na nabulag sa giyera tapos na-predict n’ya yung 9/11 (Ma, have you read about the woman who was blinded during a war and she predicted 9/11)?”
I said no.
Sam went on and said the woman also predicted that, one day, we will be ruled by robots.
Alex said, “Oh, my, god, ayokong ma-Terminator (I don’t want a Terminator scenario).”
Personally, I’d rather have a Terminator scenario than a Matrix scenario — at least we can be rebels rather than batteries.
Sam and Alex went back and forth about which option is preferable. Sam said she’d choose The Matrix scenario. Alex asked her if she wants to be in the Matrix or outside of it. Sam said outside, of course, because she was going to be The One.
I can only hope that you’ve seen both films to appreciate the discussion.
After lunch, in true Connie fashion, I went straight to my computer and typed “blind woman predict 9/11” in the search bar. And I got a name. Vangelia Gushterova a.k.a. Baba Vanga.
Now, I’m not a believer in prophesies. I’m not even a Nostradamus fan. To me, people like them are a curiosity.
But did Baba Vanga really predict 9/11 accurately? The prediction was: “Horror, horror! The American brethren will fall after being attacked by the steel birds. The wolves will be howling in a bush, and innocent blood will be gushing.” That’s too ambiguous and cryptic, and anyone can inject any meaning into it. However, there was another prediction which appears to be less ambiguous.
In 1980, Baba Vanga supposedly predicted: “At the turn of the century, in August of 1999 or 2000, Kursk will be covered with water, and the whole world will be weeping over it.” Kursk, a Russian city, did not get inundated in any of those years. However, a submarine named Kursk exploded and sank in August 12, 2000.
Baba Vanga’s name is cropping up more and more these days because she also predicted that World War III will begin on November 2010.
2010: World War 3 begins in November 2010. Starting as a regular war, it will progress to a nuclear and chemical war. Vanga says the war will be finished by October 2014.
2011: As a result of the war, radioactive showers will destroy almost all life in the Northern Hemisphere. The remaining Europeans will face an even further threat from the Muslims who will use chemical weapons to finish them off.
2014: As another result of the chemicals and nuclear weapons during the war, most of the world population will have skin cancer and other skin diseases.

3797: By this time, everything on Earth will die. However, human civilization will be advanced enough to move to a new star system.
And just when I thought this long look into a possible future by Baba Vanga was finished, I found a whole bunch of reposts of even more dates on many blogs and forums. Not sure where they originated from either. These next ones are copied since all the sites are the same – these aren’t in my words, that is.

As I write this entry, Sam (who is downstairs) is chatting me up on Facebook and says, “Sana magkaroon na ng maayos na human cloning. Babalik ako para dito — 2288: Possible time travel and alien contact.”
Translation: “I hope they develop cloning well. I will come back for this — 2288: Possible time travel and alien contact.”
Sure. I suppose anything is possible for The One.
Dear The One:
I told you to check if the piping bags are clean if you want to bake meringue. Get your ass moving. Time to bake. If you don’t move now, I PREDICT that there will be no meringue produced today.
