Prophecies, once they are written down, are dramas.

Prophecy is Play.
It is not a serious and planned out attempt at the future.
It is play, like Jacob's wrestling with an angel...
if you are familiar, it is Toshiro Mifune as Kikuchiyo in The Seven Samurai.

Then there is the intuition of prophecy, and there is the physical act of prophesying.

Women prophesy as well as men.
When St. Paul cautions that women be silent in meetings, or that their heads be covered, he is speaking of a modesty in the physical act of prophesy. (The act of prophesying transcends our social mores, and that is why it is little seen in mainstream religions these days.) There is a wide range of opinion on this, which fortunately comes to a conclusion in my small mind as "... there are not male nor female, but all are one in Christ Jesus."
