Even though this is satire, it is very close to the way some people would force us to think. Any prophecy can be self fulfilling as long as it is vague enough to fit some possible description.

Take the Aztec's prophecy in the year 1517 where the appearance of a comet was believed to signify impending doom and Hernan Cortes's Yucatan peninsula landing on 4 March 1519. Where the people "knew they were doomed to failure" and just gave in without much of a fight. The rest is filtered history.

Had they not have this "revealed prophecy" then the destruction of the Aztec's empire may not have happened as it did.

Take Israel for example. Would it exist today if not for a "prophecy" it would rise out of the ashes? How much was ordained by their God and how much was built by those who unquestioningly believed this was to happen? If the Torah said to call it "Zartha" would it be known as this today?

All of this can be explained by the physics theory of the "butterfly effect".
