I Predicted The Terrorist Attack in London (For Real This Time)

I take no pleasure in writing this post… My heart is heavy… I feel so bad for anyone affected by this tragedy. I mean absolutely no disrespect to anyone involved.


In mid August, I predicted there would be a terrorist attack in London. I felt that two dates in particular were significant: 9/11/2019 and 29/11/2019

(N.B. I live in the UK and this is the UK date format, DD/MM/YYYY).

My wife has just told me about the terrorist attack in London yesterday (29/11/2019).

If you don’t believe me, here are some links to my blog posts about this… I promise, hand on heart, that I have not retroactively edited these posts to fit the horrible event which unfolded yesterday. This is 100% genuine.

Long-time readers of my blog will hopefully remember me writing these posts including their predictions on the dates above.

Honestly, right now I’m feeling a little freaked out. I’m half expecting Mulder and Scully from X-Files to knock on my door. Or anti-terrorist police.

Until my wife told me about yesterday’s attack a few minutes ago, I was prepared to write off my predictions as merely symptoms of drug-induced psychosis from mid-August.

Now, I’m really not so sure.

I Predicted a Terrorist Attack – And it Happened!

During the peak of my drug-induced psychosis in August 2019, I predicted there would be a terrorist attack today, 09/11/2019 (UK date format).

And it’s happened.

What Exactly Did I Predict?

I predicted the following things about the attack:

  • It would be like the UK version of the 9/11 attacks in New York – a huge disaster. This is why the date is 9/11 in UK format.
  • There were no people in the city at the time of the attack, meaning no people would be injured or killed. But lots of property would be damaged.
  • I would be responsible in some way for limiting the severity of the attack. I’d pilot the giant robot UNIT-01 from the anime Evangelion and fight an Angel in order to save mankind.
  • I would need to link together my conscious and unconscious minds in order to be effective. This is what happens when I sync with UNIT-01 to be effective in combat.

So What Actually Happened?

OK, I admit it: I only dreamed of a terrorist attack in the early hours of this morning! As far as a I know, there hasn’t been any attacks in the real world, only inside my head.

Here are the detail of my dream:

I was back working at an old employer from many years ago. A disgruntled customer had hacked in to the company’s IT systems and was systematically wrecking all of the servers and networking devices. This was designated as a terrorist attack against the company. It seemed the hacker just wanted to destroy the company, he wasn’t interested in extortion or blackmail.

System after system went offline as the hacker’s viruses and other tools wrecked everything. In a desperate attempt to save some servers, they were ripped off shelves and disconnected from the network. But we weren’t entirely sure if the hacker had already managed to infiltrate them.

The hack brought the entire company to its knees. None of its IT systems were working. It would take weeks, if not months, to rebuild all the systems. Most of the company’s data had been irretrievably lost. In my dream, the company didn’t appear to be using any off-site backups.

We had no idea how the hacker so easily bypassed all of the company’s layers of security. It was one of the most advanced and devastating hacking attacks the world had ever seen.

Some years earlier, I had developed an automated system which would help us to rebuild the company’s systems. After I’d spent a little time refreshing my memory about how it all worked, I felt confident I could help the company get back onto its feet.

How Accurate Was My Prediction?

Elephant in the room… I didn’t predict a real terrorist attack. And the dream I had was probably just my unconscious acting out the earlier predication.

The attack happened to a UK company, so the location was right.

The date of the attack was correct.

I thought that a city would suffer severe damage. But in my dream, only IT equipment was damaged.

I correctly predicted that no people were harmed, only property (IT equipment).

I correctly predicted that I would have a role in reducing the severity of the attack (by helping to rebuild IT systems).

My conscious and unconscious minds are linked by virtue of the fact I had a dream (unconscious) and then remembered it when I awoke (conscious). So that’s correct.

What Does My Dream Mean?

I have no idea. Seriously.


Basically, my dream was an almost perfect manifestation of my earlier prediction. I don’t think I’ve ever experienced anything like this before.

I don’t think I can call myself a psychic. All we can say is that the unconscious mind works in mysterious ways!

From my point of view, this has all been an amusing distraction, nothing more really.

Now let’s see what happens on the 29th November!


I’ve certainly had some weird ideas, visions and “insights” during my Spiritual Awakening (AKA drug-induced psychosis).

In this post I want to take a close look at some of the predictions and other “signs and wonders” which seemed significant to me.

I’m fully aware that it might make me seem crazy to be taking these things seriously. But, I’m just trying to be open-minded.

Maybe it’s all just a bit of fun – an exploration of how our minds can work under extreme circumstances. Or maybe my unconscious mind tuned in to some stuff that’s genuinely useful.

If you’re quite a scientific thinker, it’s pretty trivial to dismiss everything I say as mere coincidence. The human brain has a remarkable ability to spot meaning and patterns, even where there isn’t any (like faces in clouds).

But, I’m trying to be open-minded. Maybe this stuff means something, maybe it doesn’t. I find it interesting nonetheless and I’m not afraid to appear a bit weird or unconventional.

Timeline of events

Tuesday 13th August 2019

I took a huge dose of DXM, my drug of choice. (I don’t recommend that anyone else does this! It can be very dangerous for physical and mental health)

Sunday 18th Aug 2019

Psychosis symptoms were peaking. My sleep was severely disrupted.

In the early hours of the morning, I made some predictions…

I had been watching the classic anime Neon Genesis Evangelion. And I was fascinated by the Shinji Ikari’s first battle in the giant robot EVA01, fighting against the “angel” (monster) attacking Tokyo-3.

It seemed to me like I was Shinji, piloting the huge robot, and I had to defeat the enemy in order to save the city.

I thought there was going to be a terrorist attack. And I felt that I was, in some way, responsible for reducing the severity of the damage.

The date of 9/11 seemed to have extra significance (obviously I knew this was the anniversary of the US Twin Tower attacks).

It played on my mind that the US date format is the opposite to the UK one.

  • US date format: MM/DD/YY
  • UK date format: DD/MM/YY

So, I was thinking about the US date 9/11/19, it seemed important to me to swap the date into UK date format. So this produced the date 9th November 2019 (if we use the UK date format). I thought this would be when the terrorist attack would happen.

To me, it seemed like the terrorist attack I was predicting was going to be the UK version of the Twin Tower attacks. This was because I had swapped the date into UK format, and it also seemed appropriate to swap the location. It seemed likely to me that the attack would take place in London (as opposed to New York).

As I thought about the date 9/11/19, it started to seem like the number 2 faded into existence at the start of the date, making it 29/11/19 (29th November 2019). The number 29 has always been significant to me.

Quick recap: we now have 3 dates which seemed significant to me:

  • 11/9/19 (9/11, but in UK date format – 11th September 2019)
  • 9/11/19 (9/11 kept in the US way of writing it, but translated into the UK date format – 9th November 2019)
  • 29/11/19 (29th November 2019)

It scared the life out of me to think I might be predicting a terrorist attack. But I also predicted something even worse…

In the anime Neon Genesis Evangelion, there’s an iconic scene towards the end of the series. Shinji has found out that his new friend, Kaworu Nagisa, is actually his mortal enemy. Only one of them can survive. If Shinji doesn’t kill Kaworu, then Kaworu will kill Shinji instead.

In the scene, Shinji is piloting the giant robot EVA01. He has caught Kaworu in EVA01’s fist and is poised to kill him. This scene is still for several minutes with haunting music playing in the background. It’s very strange. I imagine that Shinji is running through all the aspects of this dilemma in his mind.

Shinji and Kaworu have become very good friends. It doesn’t seem fair that Shinji must now kill his friend. But if he doesn’t then he will be killed himself.

Eventually, Shinji does what must be done – he kills his friend.

In my mind, I felt I was Shinji. I felt I had to kill my friend.

At the time, I thought the friend I had to kill was a guy I worked with… he has been starting to feel like a good friend to me recently.

I need to be very clear: I didn’t want to kill my friend. But it felt like: I was Shinji, then at some point in the future (weeks or months), I would need to kill him. It was my destiny.

I now felt very concerned. Not only had I predicted a terrorist attack, but I felt it would be unavoidable for me to kill my good friend.

I woke up my wife in the middle of the night to tell her my concerns. We agreed I needed to get an emergency appointment with my family doctor.

Monday 19th August 2019

I saw a doctor at my regular GP surgery. I told her about my predictions. She was very concerned, especially about the part where I killed my friend.

She urgently contacted several local mental health services, including the Crisis team.

She warned me that if I left the premises and didn’t come back promptly, she may have to call the police. She was genuinely worried I might try to kill someone.

I spoke to the crisis team later that day. They were happy that I was not posing an immediate risk to my own safety or that of anyone else.

I was booked in to have an in-depth mental health assessment on Friday 23rd August 2019.

Between Monday 19th Aug – Thursday 22nd Aug 2019

I spoke in great detail about all of this with a good friend of mine, let’s call her Jane.

She reassured me that none of this related to the real world. Instead, everything I’d seen/predicted was merely symbolic. This is similar to how dreams can be symbolic – they’re often not meant to be taken literally. They require interpretation.

I felt a huge sense of relief. There wasn’t actually going to be a terrorist attack. No-one was going to die. I didn’t need to kill my friend.

Now I felt much more relaxed. My worry turned into a kind of curiosity. I wanted to find out what, if anything, would happen on these dates.

Thursday 22nd Aug 2019

I saw the number 444 repeatedly. It was almost glowing. I saw it close to the number 11. That evening I saw 444 at least 7 times.

I told Jane about this – she’d told me about her own experiences of seeing the number 11 repeatedly. She felt it was a very spiritual number. But Jane also seemed to think I was taking this way too seriously.

I knew that in Japanese and Chinese cultures, the number 4 is often associated with death. I hoped that I wasn’t predicting 3 deaths (444).

I thought 444 might be somehow related to a poker hand, a set of 4s.

Friday 23rd Aug 2019

I underwent an in-depth mental health assessment by a psychiatric nurse. She gave a provisional diagnosis of drug-induced psychosis. It made sense to me.

I was able to explain my insights by saying Jane had helped me realise they were merely symbolic. I felt there was zero chance that I would harm myself or anyone else.

I’m really grateful to Jane. If I’d continued to believe I was destined to kill my friend, I fear I could have been sectioned under the Mental Health Act (locked in a secure hospital, usually for a short time, against my will).

Around this date, I Googled the meaning of 444. I was pleasantly surprised to see it seemed to have positive connotations, including experiencing a Spiritual Awakening, which is exactly how I’d been describing my psychosis. It also seemed the Angels were on my side, which I found comforting.

Saturday 7th Sept 2019

I noticed that the number 444 seemed to be associated with my favourite musician, Flume. I blogged about it here. I felt this was probably just an interesting coincidence, but it still made me feel happy.

Wednesday 11th Sept 2019

The anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in New York. And also the first of the dates which had seemed significant to me during the peak of my psychosis.

My friendship with two friends, one of whom was Jane, reached a low point. I received an unpleasant email from the other friend, let’s call him Brian. He made it clear he felt our friendship was on life support.

Then I suddenly realised: this was the 9/11 attack. The Twin Towers (my two friendships) were destroyed, reduced to rubble. At this point I still held out hope that the friendships could be saved at some point in the future.

The number 11 which I’d previously seen next to 444, that represented the Twin Towers.

Saturday 14th Sept 2019

I decided I didn’t want ever be friends with Jane or Brian again. They had crossed too many lines for me. I wrote a blog post thanking Brian for calling me stupid. I made it clear our friendships were permanently over.

Mid-Aug to Mid-Sept 2019

In the space of these 4 weeks (approximately), there were 3 deaths in my extended social circle. Two of them were by suicide, friends of friends. The other one was a member of my extended family.

This fits with the interpretation of 444 meaning 3 deaths.

As far as I know, there have been no other deaths of anyone in my social or family circles in recent months.

Thursday 26th September 2019

I suddenly realised: my vision about it being my destiny to kill my friend… I’d got the wrong friend!

It was actually Brian who I had killed (metaphorically), back on 14th Sept. I hadn’t actually killed him, but I had killed any chance of us being friends again.

Remember how I said the scene in Neon Genesis Evangelion (where Shinji was forced to kill his friend Kaworu) was unusually long? The length of this scene gave me the feeling that the two characters were carefully considering everything that had happened, trying to decide how they should act.

I now feel this long scene represents the fact I took 3 days, from 11th Sept to 14th Sept, to carefully contemplate the necessity of killing my friendship with Brian.

Now, the prophecy seems to be complete – at least, it’s complete up to the current date.

What Next?

We still have to see what might happen on 9th November and 29th November 2019.

Maybe nothing will happen.

Maybe I got confused about the US/UK date formats for 9/11.

Maybe “the British version of 9/11” simply related to the fact that Brian, Jane and myself are all British.

In the UK, we have Brexit due to happen on 31st October 2019. There have been some extraordinary political events over the last few months. Who can say what extraordinary events the tail end of 2019 might bring?

Even Jane (initially) thought that my date predictions might have something to do with Brexit.

Or maybe, those dates are purely symbolic and relate only to events in my own personal life, just like with 11th September.

We shall see!

What do you think? Am I reading too much into all this? Is it all just a set of interesting coincidences?

Or might there be something deeper going on?
