Hi, I'm going to be starting IB this year and I've begun to think about my EE topic. I'd really like to do something on the book Futility by Morgan Robertson, and how it relates to the sinking of the Titanic. For those that don't know, Futility (Wreck of the Titan) was a novella about a sinking ship written 14 years before the sinking of the Titanic, with eerie similarities between the book and the actual sinking. I'd like to talk about the similarities, prophecies, psychics, and all of that. I know that the EE has to be very specific, and I was wondering how to phrase my question and how to narrow it down to get it to be specific? Thank you!!

Is there a link between prophecies and psychics?Maybe you could say something like"Did the author of the book envision the sinking of the Titanic?" Or maybe"How similar is the book to the sinking of the titanic?"

Hope this helps
Matt

Well, I'm not exactly sure if psychics would be the right word. I was looking up prophecies, and happened to research Nostradamus, who is believed to have predicted many events in recent history. He was referred to as a "seer" in 16th century France, and there was a direct correlation between him being a "seer" and his prophecies, considering that one resulted in the other. I wasn't very confident with using the word "seer," because I wasn't sure people would understand, thus I tried for the closest and the word that came to mind was psychic. I apologize if that caused any confusion! But thank you for your suggestion
