List: Science Fiction Movies With Accurate Predictions

posted by Nell Minow

When people think of the future we often — influenced by sci-fi movies — picture silvery jumpsuits, rayguns, and flying cars. Very often, the movies project the extremes of Utopian or distopian civilizations. But sometimes the movies get it right. Popular Mechanics has put together a list of The 10 Most Prophetic Sci-Fi Movies Ever, with the hits and misses in classics from “2001″ (space tourism) to “The Truman Show” (reality TV), “Minority Report” (touch screens — and, I would add, Patriot Act-era surveillance, though not quite at the “precognition” stage), and “Gattaca” (designer genes).
The comments are as worthwhile as the list. We’ve come a long way from The Trip to the Moon, where the space travelers returned to earth by jumping off.

    On the whole, that’s a pretty bleak list of films. Maybe the darker visions have been the most accurate, but I’d still be interested in seeing a list of the top ten optimistic, energizing movies.

    Yes, I would also like to see some popular movies that have an inspired vision of the future world! Like how we will envision renewable energy, and especially, how our understanding of our body and minds will translate into how we heal ourselves. This has been a particularly interesting topic to me, especially since discovering the possibility of quantum healing with energy and light, through soul healing. Maybe it is the way that healing will go in the future?
    May I suggest a movie to you which I have just recenty discovered, it has had a profound effect on my life and I like to share it with others, we make screenings quite often to show our friends. It is called Soul Masters, about two incredible bodhisattvas working in the world to raise the frequency of humanity by teaching people to heal themselves and heal others. I have found the techniques they demonstrate to be very easy to use and powerfully transformative.
    In China, it is said that Dr. Guo can cure the incurable. When his representative in the West, Dr. Sha, heals her ailing father, American filmmaker Sande Zeig follows his return to China to visit his mentor. At Dr. Guoi?s clinic, she captures first-ever footage of breakthrough medical practices involving herbal medicine, fire massage and self- healing techniques. Dr. Sha returns to the United States and his teachings spread across North America and Europe. Expanding on Dr. Guoi?s work, he teaches people the revolutionary discovery that binds these two Soul Masters: everything has a soul, and the soul can heal. Love removes all blockages!
    Thank you kindly for your work
