May I recount a similar incident about a small time magician who, blindfolded, wrote the correct answer “James Carter” on the blackboard below the question “Who is the President of USA?” Astrologers, similarly, can be right about the past events, but their future predictions are suspect.

The semi-literate magician wrote out several other answers also which he would not otherwise be aware of. So, it is certainly not a case of seeing physically. The point, however, is a past event is like something written (a written prayer, therefore) which is more amenable to occult manipulation because of the concreteness. [TNM] Reply
