Are some modern novels inspired, perhaps in a way unbeknown even to their authors? Is this why the phrase ‘Life imitates Art’ is so often encountered? Did the ideas come into the minds of these various authors in order that their novels should have curious prophetic elements of truth which link them firmly into the Web of Destiny? Amongst such novels are Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan, Enigma, by Robert Harris, The Hermes Fall by John Baxter, Imperial Earth and Hammer of God, by Arthur C. Clark. Others are Alan Ayckbourne’s play Way Upstream, The Enigma Sacrifice by Michael Barak, The Nostradamus Inheritance by Raymond Leonard, On the Beach by Nevil Shute, The Jewel of Seven Stars by Bram Stoker, The Watch Gods by Barbara Wood and The Magdalene Scrolls by the same author, The Last Temptation of Christ by Nikos Kazantzakis and the screenplay for the 1988 film The Seventh Sign. And, of course, there is Morgan Robertson’s 1898 story ‘Futility’ which has so many strange parallels with the sinking of the Titanic fourteen years later, in 1912. It was republished in 1912 as Futility or the Wreck of the Titan. 

Since this item was first written other novels can be added to this list.  The most notable are both by Arthur C Clarke Rendezvous with Rama and 2001, A Space Odyssey.  Both came to prominence strongly in 2006.  And then there are Dan Brown's two symbologist novels, The da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons.  These came to prominence in our research in 2004 and 2005 respectively.  What is more Arthur C Clarke's 1948 short story The Sentinel of Eternity, the core of the film 2001, cross connects intricately both with The da Vinci Code,  Angels and Demons and with the Tomb of the pharaoh Seti.....

Then of course there is also Kipling's poem Recessional.  That was so prophetic of the future of the British Empire when he wrote it in 1897, the year of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee.  It predicted with absolute accuracy, the state of the 'British Empire' in the year of the next Diamond Jubilee, that of Queen Elizabeth II.

It is curious how this inspired poem by Kipling is so curiously linked by destiny into the House of Windsor.  Indeed Kipling's death was a very closely tied to the death of a sovereign.  The great poet, whose verses inspired the Empire, died the very day before his King, George V, on 19th February, 1935.  Our car crash, so intricately connected to Diana's murder, was on the very same day in 2008 in the middle of the Diana inquest.   Inspiration, destiny, design;  they are all so intricately interconnected.

There is far more to inspiration and to reality than the nihilistic skeptics and greedy materialists would have us all believe.   Read  more on this at  our da Vinci Code site.  Some examples of inspiration are given below.
