The agenda of a prophet can only ever be a profit.
Putting importance in prospect is what creates [false] prophets.
Do we seemingly manifests things because all of the underlying evidence that pre-exists, which supports our thought, and preceptors that we still have no understanding of, put the pieces together in a seemingly magical way? Or do we seemingly predict things because we believe them to be true, and therefore, they then are? Perhaps manifestation and prediction are one in the same, meeting along the Möbius strip of gray area.
