A Man Wrote A Book About The Titanic 14 Years Before It Sank

A fictional book called “THE TITAN” published in 1898 provided detailed information 14 years in advance about a real ship named “THE TITANIC” that sank in 1912.


The poet, Ella Wheeler Wilcox, best known for the phrase, “Laugh, and the world laughs with you; weep, and you weep alone”, read the book and reached out to the author, Morgan Robertson, to find out how he saw the future and shared his response in her 1918 autobiography.

Morgan Robertson provided a fair amount of rare insight. He stated the following in his letter to explain how he had such detailed information 14 years before the incident.


“As to the motif of my story, I merely tried to write a good story with no idea of being a prophet. But, as in other stories of mine, and in the work of other and better writers, coming discoveries and events have been anticipated. I do not doubt that it is because all creative workers get into a hypnoid, telepathic and percipient condition, in which, while apparently awake, they are half asleep, and tap, not only the better-informed minds of others but the subliminal realm of unknown facts. Some, as you know, believe that in this realm there is no such thing as Time, and the fact that a long dream can occur in an instant of time gives color to it, and partly explains prophecy.”

Although he did not intentionally attempt to access future information he did, however, think it was natural for creative people to do the following:

  • Anticipate:
    • Future Discoveries
    • Future Events
  • Enter the Following State
    • Hypnotic
    • Telepathic
    • Percipient
  • Function while being half asleep
  • Access a subliminal realm of unknown facts
    • A realm without limitations to time
    • A relation to dreams (Cryptic)

What he called “a realm” is essentially a data system of some type. It’s very possible that this information system is readily accessible by anyone if they can alter the mind’s focus.

  1. The same is said about Nostradamus and his predictions. The interpretation is so loose and open, that it is easy to draw conclusions that may or may not be related.


  2. It wasn’t much, but in the mid 70s I wrote a short story space yarn where in the main ship’s name was “Challenger II, named after the first ship that exploded trying to take off from Earth.” I had no reason to write that, I could just as easily called it the Challenger and got on with the story, but something made me call it “II,” and give an explanation. It was never published, so no one knew, but after the Challenger blew up I checked my records, since lost, and sure enough I had somehow predicted correctly. Or did I cause that explosion…


    • Most likely predicted. You should post your story, it’s fascinating.


      • Unfortunately, as I said, my records got lost in my many moves and crashed computers. I lived from BC to New Brunswick and many places in between in the space of about 20 years, and every move more things got thrown out or left behind, and my short stories disappeared somewhere along my journey. Publushers didn’t like them, because I always made friends with the aliens, and they wanted wars. I tried to give them mysteries, but it was the wrong era.
        War sells. Friendship sucks. The epitaph of the human race!

  3. I remember this from another post.

    This is one of those events that was so large and involved so many souls, the fact that it was going to take place by agreement automatically meant that it was known within the collective consciousness. Sensitives could pick up on the impending event.

    “What he called “a realm” is essentially a data system of some type. It’s very possible that this information system is readily accessible by anyone if they can alter the mind’s focus.”

    It is. It’s called the Akashic.
