Nostradamus on 21st century War causation

[My writings] by dark and
cryptic sentences, tell of the causes of the future mutation of
mankind, especially the most urgent ones.
1555 in the beginning of his Preface to his prophecies.
From 1555, the time of Nostradamus publication of the first set
of over 300 prophetic verses, it was apparent that the writer
was talking about draconian change that would have its greatest
impact some five centuries after his death. Mutations
surrounding plague, fire in and from the sky, floods,
earthquakes and war were his major focus.

These are clearly rare English

This chapter of my book looks at the
philosophical basis behind Nostradamus presentation of his war
verses. It deals with the ownership of war and the morality and
ethics of those who were its proponents.
From the 21stC perspective we have to
assess these concepts while recognising his claim implies he
dealt with future wars way beyond the understanding of the
Using human wit man has increasingly placed
himself in a position where he can accurately foretell many
things that will happen in the future. Foreknowledge of the date
of Halley's-comet's return is one such example. The fate of our
sun is another. We know one day it will explode but those who
speak this truth are not speaking from occult belief but from a
scientist's understanding of universal evolution.
The above examples rely on mechanistic
cycles which means that emotional and immediate detail of impact
on human life are inevitably missing. Nostradamus claim as shown
in C1 Q91 suggests he goes much further than that.
The Gods will make it appear to mankind
that they are
the authors of a great war.
Before the sky seen as
free of weapons & spears
the greatest damage will be
inflicted on the left
And the anagrams in the ten verses of the sephirot below and the table above
show elements that cannot be known by the mere use of repetitive
cycles. For instance terms such as Nazi, Soviet,
refer to nationalist movements with differing ideologies. Three
of these terms relate to the mid 20th century but have no real
prominence before that time.
Yet they define a way of thinking that although contrasting in its brutality
is unified by the self-centred nature of each. These are not unique to wa-like
attitudes; even pacifism tcan have a similar alignment as seen in the
individualistic pleasure creed advanced by the ancient
philosopher Epicurus. Attitudes are a prime factor in the
creation of wars with both pacifism and nationalism enabling
their commencement and continuation. But Nostradamus expressed
interest was in the mutation of things; the new slant upon
ancient ideas was therefore his focal point for the discussion
Epicurus saw the purpose
of philosophy was to help people attain a happy,
tranquil life characterized by ataraxia (peace
and freedom from fear) and aponia (the absence of pain).
He advocated that people were best able to pursue
philosophy by living a self-sufficient life surrounded
He taught the root of
all human neurosis is death denial and the tendency for
human beings to assume that death will be horrific and
painful, which he claimed causes unnecessary anxiety,
selfish self-protective behaviours, and hypocrisy.
According to Epicurus, death is the end of both the body
and the soul and therefore should not be feared.
Epicurus taught that
although the gods exist, they have no involvement in
human affairs. He taught that people should behave
ethically not because the gods punish or reward people
for their actions, but because amoral behavior will
burden them with guilt and prevent them from attaining
Each generation plunged into wars tends to ignore their part in its creation
and to blame outside forces of gods and nature for their
actions. But it is clear from verse C1 Q91 (see above) that
Nostradamus differs in that view. And that same verse makes it
clear that he has an interest in how change in the nature of
weapons reshapes the ancient forms of war. They are no longer
remote battles fought hand-to-hand by people who can look each
other in the eye as they fight and die; they involve each and
every one of us for it is our planet that becomes both the
battlefield and the weapon. This is not the act of gods or
nature but the result of what we who live upon this planet build
Within the anagrams you can see these patterns named precisely and accurately
as determinants of our future. They range from illnesses to
planetary distortion with both equally effective as instruments
of torment, death and destruction. These are the mutations to
which Nostradamus refers when giving his motivations for
publishing his prophecies.
Once again in the sephirot below there are a great many adjacent anagram
sequences that resonate truly with the topics and the contexts
where they are placed. They contribute a great deal to the
meaning of Nostradamus verses as can be seen by this analysis of
mine which relies on the unity that the gathering of clusters
based on a common theme can bring.
Throughout these presentations there are startling examples of the imports of
adjacency but more homespun versions are equally as common and
as equally inexplicable as to how they came to be there at all.
A prime example is seen in C4 Q18 line 3 whose text says Punished by
edict, hunted like criminals (Punis
de dits cha$$ez comme $cele$tes). In that line the
lettering stesPunisd editschas
results in adjacent words stupidness chastised.
Each occurs here and nowhere else in the prophecies yet here
they are together with a clear and pertinent relevance to each
other. And their aptness to the text is also clear. But also
overlaying these two words is the anagram for
edits) which also only occurs in this verse. And adjacent
to it is an anagram for upsets (stesPu)
that only three other occurrences. So this is another layer
found within the lettering that Nostradamus compiled.
This is overpowering and so incredible that the temptation is to say it can t
be there, you ve cheated somehow, he couldn t have done that.
But such statements aren t true; it is clearly without any
sleight of hand and it is equally apparent that it is there. And
the number of these complex entwined wordings placed in a
context associated with the text is not just several; it is
vast. Denial is not a justified option for coming to terms with
the content in Nostradamus Prophecies.
However the importance of my presenting the above example wasn t primarily to
challenge sceptics. It is here to indicate why I don t display
all the powerful connections in the verse clusters; there are
too many. And I wanted to make the point that the central ideas
can be better given by the series of sephirots rather than
overly long analysis of every highlight. For the reader to
achieve such an overview the sephirot is the simplest tool.
Spend whatever time you like to gather its entwined threads and
return at your choice to feel the emotion of its profundity.
These issues can be seen covered in great scope in the chart of ten of
Nostradamus' verses attached below.
