The Web Bot Project is a computer program that was created by Clif High and George Ure in the 1990's.
Clif High originally began developing software in an attempt to stay ahead of movements in the financial markets. But Web Bot has gained fame for something else-- an alleged ability to foresee future events!
How is this possible? Clif High claims that the software operates based on the psychic abilities in every human being. As the program scours the internet, it picks up on certain words and notes the shifts in their contexts.
By doing this, information can supposedly be gathered that may inform us about things that are going to happen in the future.
This information can often be vague but is sometimes eerily specific.
Unsurprisingly, Clif High and George Ure have a large amount of critics. Considering that the entire Web Bot Project is based in the assumption that all humans have predictive psychic abilities-- well, that's hardly shocking.
However, they also have a truly enthusiastic following as well! From YouTube videos to radio broadcasts to newsletters and blogging, Clif High, George Ure and the Web Bot Project are constantly disseminating news about their models and predictions that is easily locatable.
They claim to have had previous knowledge of many events in the past, albeit somewhat vague. Giving incredibly specific warnings and notifications about a future event has never been its focus. So while the evidence seems to show some validity to the Project and the information it provides, that information isn't necessarily the most helpful in providing instructions or advice to avert undesirable situations.
But what have they predicted for 2012?
Could the Web Bot Project have the ability to forewarn us about the potential threats of a 2012 Apocalypse?
Well so far, the information has been limited. Literally.
As explained earlier, the program works by searching the internet looking for shifts in the use language. This data is gathered and then analyzed.
But here's the issue with data surrounding December 21, 2012: there isn't much data.
For some unknown reason, there appears to be a large void of data available in the immediate months following December 2012. The volume of data then mysteriously resumes mid-way through 2013.
