Predicting the Future

47 minutes

Since the very first humans walked the earth, we have wanted to know our futures. Whether driven by curiosity or fear, we have a persistent need to know what will happen next. And anytime we reach the limits of our understanding, we turn to divination. Love, career, money, existential doom, there’s no question too big or too trivial when it comes to our happiness, security, and survival.

Rachel explores science-fiction futures, ancient divination systems, and cognitive thin-slicing to show how your intuition might be your most reliable mystical tool for predicting the future. 

Hear Arthur C Clark’s predictions about the year 2000 from the 1964 World’s Fair and Michio Kaku’s predictions for a future we currently only dream about. Find out why the Greeks were obsessed with animal entrails. Listen to Carl Jung tell stories of intuition. And then, learn how to create your own divination dictionary using Apantomancy.
