A hundred years before James Cameron turned a tragedy into a work of art, American author Morgan Robertson wrote a mediocre book called Futility, or the Wreck of the Titan, about the sinking of an "unsinkable" ocean liner. When you see the cover, you figure you're pretty clearly looking at a fictionalized version of the Titanic story.
No surprise there; it's a story that's been told over and over (there were 13 Titanic movies before Cameron's, including one by the Nazis) but Robertson's book was first~!!
* He was so eager to be first, apparently, that he didn't bother to wait for the Titanic to actually sink before writing about it. The Wreck of the Titan was published in 1898, 14 years before RMS Titanic was even finished being [cheaply] built.
The similarities between Robertson's work and the Titanic disaster are so astounding that one has to imagine if White Star Line built Titanic to Robertson's specs as a dare. The Titan was described as "the largest craft afloat and the greatest of the works of men," "equal to that of a first class hotel," and, of course, "unsinkable".
Both ships were British-owned steel vessels, both around 800 feet long and sank after hitting an iceberg in the North Atlantic, in April, "around midnight." Sound like enough to keep you up at night? Maybe that's why Robertson republished the book in 1912 just in case enough people didn't know that he wrote it.
While the novel does bear some curious coincidences with the Titanic disaster, there are quite a few things that Robertson got flat wrong. For one, the Titanic did not crash into an iceberg "400 miles from Newfoundland" at 25 knots. It crashed into an iceberg 400 miles from Newfoundland at 22.5 knots.
Wait, what? That's one hell of a lucky guess!
But maybe the weirdest thing about Titan were points that had nothing to do with the story, but check out after numerous inquires and expeditions to the Titanic wreck site.
For one, both the Titan and the Titanic had too few lifeboats to accommodate every passenger on board; the Titan carrying "as few as the law allowed." While Robertson decided to be generous and include four lifeboats more on his ship than Titanic, it's an odd point to bring up when you consider that lifeboats had nothing to do with the story. When Titan hit the iceberg (starboard bow, naturally), the ship sank immediately, making the point made about lifeboats inconsequential. Why then would you mention this?!
It'd be like HAL 9000 addressing the danger posed by O-rings at low temperature decades before the Challenger disaster!!
Details abrupt showcased this book as the building plot for the real ship. This is where the beginning of government conspiracy is asserted! It has been documented and believed that certain delegates were paid to create appeals that seemed chaotic and almost unbelievable and then it was like a game to make them become a reality.
So was it really conicidence? We think not -- and after years of research and testing we found documented appeal in the radiance of this story. Brought to light by a member of the NSA we retireved this security device that has been "de-activated" from monitoring, but still is filled with strong electric connections to the calling and deliverance of government doings!
You will be connected through a streamline of dreams into the underground passages of dispair that is underwritten by our "elite" members in power. Many things that occur and are shown as accidents and devastation are all implored on purpose by the government. You now can cast the regiments of power into your spirit and even help avoid some of the devistation by letting the word out prior to these things happening -- and whatever you do stay anonymous!
