An Outline Of The Future History
The Great Work
Cayce gave about 253 world-class objective predictions, many of them truly long range prophecy of the chief trends and outcomes of the 20th century. At least 191 of these predictions were objectively fulfilled, 17 failed. Still pending are 45 "destiny" prophecies which are even more important today than when Cayce gave them. Almost all of these pending prophecies are due to be fulfilled during the millennial period of 1998-2001.
Cayces most outstanding world-class predictions are briefly summarized in this chapter to provide an overview of Cayces prophetic scope and accuracy as well as an outline of his "Future History". The remainder of Books 2 and 3, the "The Great Break-Up" and the "The Prophecies", explore Cayces predictions and his Future History in great detail. The setting and story behind the predictions, including their connection to the flow of Cayces life, are provided within an outline of the history of the 20th century. Within each topical chapter, the predictions are usually presented in the sequence in which they were given.
In accordance with Cayces statements and definitions, the Future History breaks out into several distinct eras, each with its own dynamic:
The major chapters in "The Great Break-Up" and "The Prophecies" present each of these eras. To provide a sharp focus for each of these themes and chapters, all of Cayces economic, business, stock and American political predictions are separately organized in different chapters.
In the summary montage of Cayces predictions in this chapter, Cayces actual words (not counting the paragraph headers) are shown in bold italic text. All of Cayces phrases in this chapter are more formally quoted and cited in the relevant topical chapters of Book 2 or Book 3.
Cayces first major prediction that the world would change in fundamental ways came in 1926. He told his audiences that the world of 1926 would change drastically in the years ahead and become "very, very strange". He began to prepare people for events and phenomenon which the people of the early 20th century could not guess nor understand by telling them that in the earth's plane, at the present period, time or age, many ...will bring many radical changes in the history of world...in the affairs of man many conditions will arise that will be very, very, strange to the world at present - in religion, in politics, in the moral conditions, and in the attempt to curb or to change such, see?
The world changed drastically in the following 20 years, the tempo of radical change continually increasing with the great depression, the rise of crime syndicates, wide scale street anarchy in many nations, the advent of film and radio, the steadily rising spiral of warfare, radical shifts in technology for everyday living, mass expression of unbounded racism and imperialism throughout the world, and so on. It is most likely certain that Cayces audience did not "see" nor understand. They barely had time to react and hold on.
Few people of Cayces time paid much attention to such predictions, neither apparently did Cayce himself. It wasnt until the wall hit them all in 1930 with the beginning of the Great Depression that they could begin to feel and see the future shock. Then the world-class questions began and the world-class answers began to flow. By 1932 the prophet in Edgar Cayce began to truly emerge from the shadows and he progressively outlined, with chilling accuracy, the essence of world events several months to several years in advance. Some of Cayces commentary outlined the central destinies and dynamics of the entire 20th century, which he predicted would culminate in the shifting of the poles of the Earth and the emergence of a completely new planetary civilization.
