We watched various items spread out over the years, and then in one country we saw they were preparing for war again, the country which lost last time. There were great preparations, youth movements, and all the rest of it. They got flying training by making quite a number of small aircraft and claiming that these were recreational things. We saw a very funny little man with a small mous- tache and pale, bulging eyes. Whenever he appeared and started ranting then a crowd quickly collected. Things like this were going on all over the world, and in many cases countries went to war. Eventually there was a very big war in which most of the world was involved. Master, I said, I cannot understand how you can conjure up pictures of things which have not yet oc- curred. The Lama looked at me and then he looked at the machine standing ready to show us more pictures. Well, Lobsang, actually there is nothing very difficult in it, because if you get a gang of people you can just 152 about bet all you have that when they do things they will all do it in the same way. If a woman is being pursued by a man she will run in one direction and hide. I Vow if that occurs a second and a third time her path is established, and you are very sure then when you predict that there will be a fourth occasion and the woman will run to her secret hiding place, and that her tormentor will soon be caught. But, sir, I said, how is it possible to produce pic- tures of a thing that hasn't happened? Unfortunately, Lobsang, you are not old enough yet to be able to appreciate an explanation, but briefly, corresponding things happen in the fourth dimension and we get what is more or less an echo down here on the third dimension. Some people have the ability to see far ahead, and to know exactly what is happening. I am one of those called a very sensitive clairvoyant and telepath, but you are going to surpass me many, many times because you have been trained like this almost before you were born. You have thought that your family have been hard on you. Yes, they have, very hard, but this was an order from the Gods. You have a special task to do, and you had to be taught anything which could be useful to you. When you are older you will understand about time tracks and dif- ferent dimensions, and all that sort of thing. I told you yesterday about crossing an imaginary line on the Earth, and finding that you were in a different day. That, of course, is an entirely artificial affair so that the countries of the world can trade, and so they have this artificial system where time is artificially varied. Lobsang, there is a point which you apparently have not noticed. The things we are seeing now, and discussing now, are things that will not happen until fifty years or so have passed. I was almost stunned when you told me that, Mas- ter, because at the time it seemed all natural, but yesI can see now that some of the thingswell, we don't have the science to do them. Therefore it must be something in the future. 153 The Lama nodded his head gravely and said, Yes, in 1930 or 1940, or somewhere in-between there, the second World War will begin. And war will rage almost throughout the whole of the globe. It will bring abso- lute ruin to some countries, and the ones who win the war will lose the peace, and those who lose the war will win the peace. I cannot tell you when the war will actually start because there is no point in knowing, anyhow, we cannot do anything about it. But it should be round about 1939, and that is a good few years ahead yet. After that warthe second Great Warthere will be continuous guerilla warfare, continuous strikes, and all the time the Unions will be trying to increase their power and gain control of their countries. I am sorry to tell you that in about 1985 some strange event will occur which will set the scene for the third Great World War. That war will be between peoples of all nationalities and all colours, and it will bring the Race of Tan into being. Rapes are terrible things, no doubt, but at least if a black man rapes a white woman then we have yet another colour tan, the Race of Tan. We have to have a uniform colour on this Earth. That is one of the very necessary things before there can be much lasting peace. We cannot give exact dates, exact to the day, the hour, the minute and the second as some ****** think we can, but we can say that round about the year 2000 there will be intense activity in the Universe, and in- tense activity on this world. After a bitter, bitter strug- gle the war will be resolved with help from people from outer space, people who do not like Communism here.
