    25 predictions for 2012 - 2015 (plus five things that won't happen) - In addition to those 25 predictions, there's always The Big Unknown. Something really big seems likely to happen in 2012 - 2015 that's so far out of left field that nobody could foresee it. We're talking game-changing big, such as (perhaps) the invention of a bonafide free energy device, or contact with a non-human civilization from another planet. (Natural News; January 4, 2012)
