PREDICIVE PROGRAMMING? Deep Space 9 Past Tense Part 1 and 2 by lenseoftruth

What’s the old saying again? ” coincidence is not a kosher word.” Sometimes I think reality and this phenomenon writes itself, but I am of the current opinion that it’s a mixture of inspired and seeded writing. 

Episodes first aired January 2ed 1995 and January 5th 1995.

“Sanctuary District A” San Francisco 2024.

Regardless, Past Tense Part 1+2 of DS9 predicts the following in 2024: San Francisco populated by a large jobless and homeless population in sanctuary districts, lockdowns, digital IDs, social credit and a digital currency, riots, huge gaps in rich and poor, Europen political upheaval, and a huge disparaging eliet. The Bell Riots which insured were a representation of the poor who have to take U.S government workers hostage in order for the system to recognize this inequity.  Hauntingly, it sounds a bit like today.

They give a date:  September 3rd 2024

  Did I mention your going to fill this out in triplicate, have a retinal scan, and hand print ID?

Captain Cisco, Jazea Dax, and Julian Bashir accidently go back in time viva a anomaly during transport to San Francisco ( Star Fleet HQ).  Instead they go back several centuries to San Francisco circa 2024.  Gulags called “Sanctuary Districts” are their to manage or hide the true extent of economic fallout in America. People who are impoverished, jobless, mentally ill, or undesirable are quartered off.  This homeless population is paralleled by a population of elite, who either through malintent, willful ignorance, self-rightousness, or hubris do not help people in Sanctuary Districts to reintegrate into society. It’s the old story of Have verses Have-not. Furthermore, Past Tense alludes that most large American cities also have sanctuary districts full of people who are locked in.

No ID? Come with me!

If a person is discovered without digital ID they are also locked down, inevitably if you aren’t able to prove you have ID, you are taken to the sanctuary districts for prossessing.  For the sake of this 2 part episode, I’d rather not give it away and spoil it for you. However, you should give it a watch and decide for yourself if it’s too “familiar” to our present time.

What do you think?

Overall, the content of the article’s intriguing. Some editing, however, would go a long way. If we’re going to fight culture wars, the least we can do is ensure proper spelling and grammar.

More than just “culture wars” going on, friend. So so much more.

But point definitely taken and agreed 🤣

The struggle is real when you write on a phone with big thumbs. I feel you.

I’ve been rewatching this series with my husband. We’re not to this season yet, but, I remember these episodes in great detail. There’s a lot of seeding in Star Trek and in Stargate.
