    Amidst the constant evolution of human culture, the presence of stories has remained a consistent and integral part of both society and its folk groups. Often passed verbally through the generations, stories act as an indication of the beliefs and concerns of the people, reinforcing their position and role in their communities. I investigated the transmission and belief of prediction stories in Polish families, where they are called przepowiednie. In this essay, I will discuss whether knowledge of these stories was affected by age, gender, or place of origin. Since women show a prevalence of predictive games, such as MASH, in early adolescence and childhood, I predicted that more stories would be known and believed by women. Furthermore, since I have never heard of any przepowiednie in Canada, I also predicted that individuals born in Poland would know and believe in the stories more than their Canadian counterparts, especially people born in villages versus cities. Villages tend to hold onto older customs, whether folktales or the layout of a house, more strongly than people in cities. I did not think that many stories would be told in Canada. Individuals who were 30 and older were more likely to have been born in Poland and raised with the stories, and so I hypothesized that they would believe in them more than younger people. Prediction stories are found worldwide, and their prevalence in the Polish culture signifies the peoples need for expression. As with all folk…

    From the earliest times, there has been an interest to know what the future might bring. Anticipating the future is considered as a useful way to align and improve current strategies and this interest has been reflected in future studies, strategic planning, scenario thinking and planning, foresight, and futurology.

    First and foremost, I want to clarify that a paradox has two separate meanings. Firstly, a paradox can be a statement that is seemingly contradictory or opposed to common sense and yet is perhaps true; and secondly, it is something, such as a situation, that is made up of two opposite things and that seems impossible but is true or possible. Both definitions, although close to each other are much different upon closer look. I argue that the gray zone is more in line with the second definition…
