It seems that science fiction writers have been our modern-day prophets, by not only predicting technology, but explaining things like atoms and how materiality is actually empty space, etc. This, I saw explained in an old b&w film on YouTube. I was watching a video on YouTube and someone in the comments said that the monolith in 2001: A Space Odyssey is the same design as the iPhone, so much so that Steve Jobs said he patterned it after the monolith, when in reality, the government has had high-tech for decades but started putting it out little by little so as not to overwhelm the people and make them suspicious about where it was coming from. Also, I've read that Gene Roddenberry was taken up in a spaceship and told to produce the series Star Trek to get people 'used to the idea' of extraterrestrials. All these movies and shows supposedly were to 'prepare' the populace for all the technology and eventual revealing by the government about extraterrestrials. Thoughts?
