Nostradamus C04 Q31: Lucretius Luther and the Masons underpin Nostradamus' sect values.
Copyright: Allan Webber, December 2015
A strong claim can be made that this verse is about
Nostradamus' sect and the values that direct its course based only on the
text however the anagrams provide the details that could not be openly
stated. There are a list of names and concepts which determine a value
system that if known in the sixteenth century would have put Nostradamus'
life in danger.
Foremost amongst the names and concepts included as
Lucretius(uict ſur le),
(ne au pla),
(t ſur le h),
(n de nui)and Dianne
(ain de n). Together these define a system
that is strong on rational pragmatism and non-conformist Christian values.
It also identifies people of Nostradamus' time with whom he had allegiance
even if this was limited to their ideas, ideals or some part thereof.
There is a small group of anagrams that enrich this
verse's tale and these include:

341-270 BC) was an
ancient Greek philosopher as well as the founder of the school of
Epicureanism....For Epicurus, the purpose of philosophy was to
attain the happy, tranquil life, characterized byataraxia
(peace and freedom from fear) and aponia (the
absence of pain) and by living a self-sufficient life surrounded by
friends. He taught that pleasure and pain are the measures of what is
good and evil; death is the end of both body and soul and should
therefore not be feared; the gods neither reward nor punish humans;
the universe is infinite and eternal; and events in the world are
ultimately based on the motions and interactions of
moving in empty space.
Undines or ondines are a category of
elemental beings associated with water, first named in the
alchemical writings of
Paracelsus. Similar creatures are found in
classical literature, particularly
Ovid'sMetamorphoses.....Although resembling humans in form they
lack a human soul, so to achieve immortality they must acquire one by
marrying a human. Such a union is not without risk for the man,
because if he is unfaithful he is fated to die.

values, especially love, justice, compassion, forgiveness, service,
humility, courage, hope, quality and appreciation.

a lifestyle based on honor, integrity, and philanthropic values. We
