It can be said that H.G. Wells was one of the first science fiction writers and also a clairvoyant. The author of The War of the Worlds and The Time Machine. Several of this story became more fact than fiction. H. G. Wells experienced the world of metaphysics and was a member ofFabian Socialist Society of England which had connections to the Golden Dawn and Madame Blavatsky.
He also penned In the Days of the Comet, the story about a comet crashing in the earth at the turn of the century. Of course, Comet ISON will not crash into the earth but what truths lie behind its coming.
For more on H.G. Wells and his “prophecies”:
“I told you so…” H.G. Wells’ self-penned epitaph underscores a lifetime of grim, yet uncanny prophecy. With stories like The Time Machine and The War of the Worlds, H.G. Wells established himself as a sci-fi writer of almost clairvoyant talent. But Wells’ tales of hi-tech adventure belie an ominous vision of the future.
Beneath the technological wonder of 1895’s The Time Machine, Wells attacks the growing class disparity in his native Britain … through a dystopian future where the ruling class literally eat their inferiors.
In 1898’s Martian invasion epic, The War of the Worlds, H.G. Wells makes a ghastly–and accurate–prediction that soon becomes a staple of the modern battlefield: deadly biological weapons.
In 1914’s The World Set Free, scientists uncover a revolutionary power source, propelling mankind into a new age of prosperity and technological progress. But this same energy is soon turned to warfare, with next-level weapons that unleash unprecedented horrors on humanity. In this tale, H.G. Wells accurately prophesizes the advent of the atomic bomb.
H.G. Wells’ frighteningly accurate predictions hold a grave warning: beware the dark side of progress. Our greatest innovations could very well become the tools of our own destruction.
