I made the definitions right there; all you'd really be doing is offering different definitions.
And, for the purpose I was making, those are worthwhile definitions.
I forecast this kind of stuff for a living, and, trust me, you never have perfect information.
You never get certainty; you never get perfect clarity; you're always working based off assumptions; and your assumptions could always be wrong.
But feel free to believe whatever you want about what's going to happen to the world. I just recommend that you don't mistake it for being factual.
As for me, when someone is telling me what the future holds, but they can't spell "judgments" correctly, I find them less credible.
Merely pointing to some piece of evidence and saying it means such and such, does not mean it means such and such.
An interpretation is going on there, and many things go into that interpretation.
The point of doing so was to show how his beliefs might have contributed to these, and how these might contribute to his beliefs.
"Collapse" is a double entendre; it can mean either the impending collapse he's predicting, or the collapse of his mind/life due to his obsession with supposed impending collapse.
Throughout history there have always been people making claims about impending collapse, rapture, apocalypse, second-coming-of-Christ/the 12th Imam/etc.
If you haven't already, you should read up on millenarianism and related ideas, so that you have a bit more perspective on the matter.
(btw, it's available streaming on Netflix, for anyone who's interested...)
