Its not morbid, Loremaster! Please, continue to share with us, I personally find it comforting to know that others feel much the same way as I do (had a good IM chat with Icarus the other day that made me feel much better about some things).
I was doing some research for the Force topics the other day when I read a line that really struck me. It was from a book written by a psychic, a training book, and she said that it is almost impossible to make predictions about something or somebody when you have a vested interest in the outcome. I think that because events look to be on a global scale, pretty much everyone has a vested interest and that might be a or the reason why we are struggling to work out whats going to happen.
