Utrum similis sit causa etiam praedicendorum futurorum, ut rerum, quae nondum sunt, iam exsistentes praesentiantur imagines, confiteor, Deus meus, nescio.
Whether there be a like case of foretelling things to come also; that of things which as yet are not, the images may be perceived before, already existing, I confess, O my God, I know not.
(St. Augustine, Confessions, XI, 18-23)
In this section we will deal with the delicate issue of time and, in particular, we will discuss the possibility of knowing the future or getting information about the present or the past that none could know otherwise.
At the beginning we reported a quotation from the Confessions of St. Augustine, in which the perplexity of the Bishop of Hippo on this matter is evident. Is it possible or not to see what will happen in the future?
Far be it from us to proceed with an unlikely philosophical discussion, after the many other disquisitions already made! Nevertheless, we will say what we believe in. In what way? We’ll just let the facts told by our witnesses talk in our place.
We decided to collect our video-interviews in these following sub-groups, by the modality of knowledge of the future events and not only:
- Precognition dreams;
- “Revealing” deceased.
