Events that unwrapped just before the trip, however, were not encouraging.
Metaphysical forces that I secretly track for some time now and am just about their spectacular exposure, were hugely active this time. There has never been so much talk about Colombia. Firstly, they signed a truce to the 50-year civil war, then refused it, got the Nobel Prize for it, then at Medellin, barely 200 km from Bogotá, an aircraft crashed due to lack of fuel (i.e. exactly according to my forecasts), pilots at Lufthansa begun a strike and just before taking off from Frankfurt a fault on the brakes was discovered in our plane. But, metaphysical forces can also be positive: in Lufthansa's magazine they, obviously knowing that I'm currently obsessed with the issue of time, printed the old Indian proverb: "People say that time is passing; and time says that people are passing." Pounding over this saying occupied a significant part of my journey and in the end I developed a mathematical formulation of it that will eventually stand alongside the theory of relativity.
