Did a Lewiston, Maine, Man Have a Premonition About the Missing Titanic Submarine?
Missing Titanic tourist submarine
In case you've somehow missed it (although it's on the TV news and online news everywhere now), over the weekend, a submarine went missing after setting out to tour the wreckage of the Titanic.
According to USA Today, the submarine, owned by OceanGate Expeditions and equipped with a 96-hour oxygen supply, lost communication with the Canadian researcher icebreaker supporting them, Polar Prince, just over 90 minutes after it submerged.
There are five travelers on board the submarine -- named Titan -- as reported by USA Today. And that's where a Lewiston, Maine man comes into the story and things get really interesting.
Mike the Tarot Guy
Mike the Tarot Guy, based out of Lewiston, Maine, is someone we have written about before. After being featured on the radio giving an abbreviated reading, he personally gave me an extended reading and when I tell you I was blown away with how he pin-pointed so many thoughts, feelings, and ideas I've had and have told no one about.
Which makes this next statement next-level insane: Mike may have had a premonition about what is now happening with the missing Titan submarine two weeks ago.
According to Mike the Tarot Guy, two weeks ago, he had a dream where he and his best friend were randomly on a submarine with three other people (bringing the total number of people on the sub to five) -- sound familiar?
Fun fact, too. Mike said the whole basis of the friendship he had with the bestie that joined him on the submarine in the dream was their equal obsession with the Titanic. Sound even more familiar? (Not necessarily the obsession part, but the Titan submarine was on its way to the Titanic wreckage.)
While it's unknown if the Titan actually made it to the Titanic wreckage since contact was lost just over 90 minutes after being submerged, the submarine in Mike the Tarot Guy's dream did in fact make it to the wreckage, and actually entered in through a large opening in the bow of the wreck.
That's where Mike the Tarot Guy says the trouble began, as the sub in his dream became lodged in the ship, about 2.5 miles down, and oxygen began getting thin while the submarine lost power.
The rest of the dream branches off into some psychological thriller that M. Night Shyamalan or maybe even Maine's own Stephen King should ask him for screenplay rights over, but there's one additional piece to the Mike the Tarot Guy puzzle that adds to the bizarreness of this whole situation.
According to Mike the Tarot Guy:
Since the dream, I’ve talked about how it’d make a great movie... And I acknowledge that I was in a big Titanic kick at the moment, almost obsessive. Watching docs, googling pics, watching Titanic: Honor and Glory (a video game) walkthroughs. Started writing a stupid novel idea called Titanic: The Untold Stories (it’s delightfully stupid). But again, this has all been obsessive and wouldn’t stop. That is until I found out about the lost sub. After that everything stopped, the obsession was gone.
