Dr Martin Luther King Jr was killed by James Earl Ray with a single shot from long distance on April 4th 1968 in Memphis Tennessee. Ray was using the name Ramon George Sneyd when he was arrested on June 12th 1968 at Heathrow Airport as he attempted to leave the UK. Ray had escaped from prison a year earlier and had, despite being an escaped criminal, crossed the USA border into Canada and Mexico on several occasions. After the assassination he somehow managed an escape to the UK and from there he visited other countries before his arrest.
As bizarre as it may seem that this name should be found in Nostradamus' text, it is no more or less bizarre than the story behind the murder and the murderer. It is one of those events that creates controversy and, from whichever way its viewed, it has many puzzling elements.
I have no particular interest in resurrecting an old controversy but as James Ray and Martin Luther King emerge out of my work I will need to explain as I go why old news has current relevance.
My many years of work on these anagrams has led me to believe there is a logic to Nostradamus' words, regardless or not of whether he could see the future and this becomes more and more apparent as patterns emerge from below the surface and by their consistent recurrence led to the definition of my rules of analysis. These rules are the cornerstone of all my presentations and the same is true in this analysis.
My major tools were discovered in the period from 1994 to 2005 CE. They involve:
In addition the message of the anagrams and the visible text need to be supportive of each other.
As I developed the papers on Nuclear material and floods I came to appreciate additional rules that are inbuilt into each line and each verse. These rules explain some of the dilemmas that have faced people over the years.
These rules are:
When I began writing this section of my work in 2007 I was of the the belief Nostradamus' work held several tales one of which was about kings and queen. Early in my effort to grasthe nature of this Royal trail I found the trail diverging. It still followed the path of a king but not any that I had previously considered, in fact I only knew the man as a name from the history of our times.
In the development of this diverging trail I entered another name which was suggested by the story. It was entered for analysis into my program to see if there was a particular anagram in the text of Nostradamus Prophecies. The name I searched for was Ramon-George-Sneyd and it was entered as a single block (Ramongeorgesneyd). To my huge surprise I found it in line two of Centuries VIII, quatrein 80 (Tant de maulx faitz par moyen se grand Roge). I had entered it totally convinced it would not emerge and the test was done for the sake of rigour rather than any expectation of success. The likelihood of finding any particular name is exceptionally low as shown below.
Amongst the tens of thousands of names I have tried that don't exist as whole anagrams are George-Bush, Bush, George (except as a non-anagram of Saint George), President-Bush, Tony-Blair, Michel-de-Nostredame, Michel-Nostredame, Nostradamus, John-Howard, Howard, UUashington., Allan-UUebber, Allan-Thomas-UUebber. It is exceptionally rare to find a name as a whole anagram. Some of the ones in the list above can be found as single-split anagrams and of these the most complex is probably Michel Nostredame in Centuries II Quatrein 86 L.4 (L'Herault soy rendre a crier est commis..L'He). There is also President Bush in Centuries III Quatrein 72 L.4 (Pres du Thesin Rubicon pugne incerte). There are no single-split anagrams for George-Bush, John-Howard, George-Washington and so it is reasonable to conclude that even when split it is not easy to find a particular name.
It is clearly exceptional to find a name as complex as Ramon-George-Sneyd by use of my search mechanism. But of course, the finding of it means nothing in terms of proof, for it becomes remarkable after it is found and if it wasn't there (as I had expected) I would have made no comment. And as a name it probably means nothing to most people in the world. It's not even the real name of the person who used it. That man was James Earl Ray, murderer of a king, but not a royal king. It is not through the probability/ improbability of its existence but the context in which the anagram of the false identity is found that implies its import may be above that of chance alone. My aim in this paper is to reveal the context and to show how this leads to further insights into the mechanisms at work in Nostradamus' Prophecies.
As mentioned earlier the trail diverged while I was researching verses with a seemingly royal connection. I had uncovered the name Harry in verses where kings, queens and princes were mentioned. This name seemed to be associated with an anagram that was either arrest or rarest. It was linked to a park and seemed to bear on environmental protest. These endeavours brought me to Centuries IX, Quatrein 34 L.3 where I could find the following message or some variant on it.
The full verse is shown below.C9 Q34
The other other lines also hold some important anagrams. In the first Pastor and martyrise can be found (Le part soluz mary sera mittre) and these words seem consistent with the visible text. In the second line was an anagram for Luther and the implication of an ill route (Retour conflict passera sur le thuille). And the fourth line held anagrams for baronet and Hudson. In the first line there is also a poorly formed anagram for St Louis (t soluz) which took my attention.
I used the terms I had found to see if an internet search could link these terms. I found mention of a Luther-Hudson car and an ecological issue in parks in St Vincents, Antigua but none of them gave coherence to either the hidden or visible messages. However one of my searches threw uthe history of a family store (http://www.vincentsmarket.biz/history.html).
The connections are clear for Vincent is there in the original owner's name. Knives (butchery) were exchanged for oil (groceries). The name of the building was changed from Hudson and it was situated in Park Street, St Louis.
Surely this is a laughable set of connections. Why would Nostradamus' work contain a description of an insignificant family store in St Louis, USA? I was aware of this absurdity immediately but felt that one little side note warranted me examining this reference more closely. The side note (although it says 1102 Park Ave) refers to an event a few years later after the shohad switched to a new location on Park Ave (if the event actually occurred it refers to 1967),
This short reference continues the absurd links. Earl, James Ray middle name implies a peerage (baronet), Dr Martin Luther King contains the name Luther, he is a pastor and his name has a royal tone as he is a King. The tones of the visible text also tune in to this theme with the mention of the afflicted one and betrayal.
Beyond these things which were the inspirations for my search there was another anagram I had not considered before. It is the name Ray (Mary) in the first line.
I need go no further with this verse at this time since my aim is merely to show why I began my search for the shooting of Martin Luther King by James Earl Ray. My expectation was that these were indeed coincidental aberrations and there would be no support for them as I analysed further. I had no basis for giving this verse credibility since it seemed irrelevant to Nostradamus. And in addition I had nothing but the most casual of interests in the topic.
There is one verse that holds the name Memphis in its visible text and none that hold it in the hidden text. This single verse Centuries VII, Quatrein 79 has been associated with Martin Luther King's death by other analysts of Nostradamus but I only became aware of these after my analysis of this verse was complete. Other analysts have been limited by the cryptic nature of the symbols and had little means of checking the veracity of their work.
The following anagrams apply in Line 1. Elusive nemesis set out symbel. Sly exclusive ethnocentrisms use to embus. The word ethnocentrisms occurs as an anagram only in this line. There is no other derivative reference (ethnocentrism / ethnocentric etc). Ethnocentric behaviour was the target of Martin Luther's campaign. Exclusive also only occurs in this line. The meaning of the hidden words reflects many aspects of the civil-rights campaign and the destiny of Martin Luther King in Memphis.
The second line holds the anagrams of Moses, sophism, omens and mentorship. The Moses reference has particular application to Luther King for he was known as 'The Young Moses'. There is also a composite anagram of emphasis-moment his era pass on. The mentorshirole of Luther-King is linked into his martyrdom in Memphis.
Each of these verses will be returned to at later stages as they have much more to reveal as other aspects come to light. The next verse I introduce into the analysis is Centuries VIII quatrein 61. It holds several cryptic clues to its relevance. Martin Luther King was shot by Ray in the semi-light of dusk on April 4th 1968. The sceptre bearer, Luther King, does not emerge from his room in daylight making it more difficult for James Ray, the marksman to take aim. Luther King was there to lead a march, a siege upon the working conditions of the sanitation workers of Tennessee. The gift of the armed legion is the gun used by Ray. It was bought from the Aeromarine supply company and was identical to the weapon on which Ray had been trained by the army at the end of the second world war. A cock crowing at night is used to symbolise bad luck or an ill-event.
The visible text can therefore be read as implying that after daylight fades an assassin's gun-sights will target the pastor bringing an end to his victim's campaigns. The voice of freedom receives a gift from the ex-army zealot that ends both their sieges.C8 Q61
Below are the anagrams that I find relevant to this verse (their relevance is discussed below the table and the narratives of the actual incident).
C8 Q61 anagrams
At the Lorraine Motel, Memphis Tennessee Dr. King was felled by a 30.06 rifle bullet at almost 6 on the evening of April 4, 1968.
James Earl Ray.
Martin Luther King's speech at Mason Temple in Memphis on the eve before he was assassinated is widely seen as having a prescient element:
Jowers was the name of the cafe owner next to the building from which the shot was fired. Jowers was charged many year after James Earl Ray's conviction for the murder and was convicted in a civil court of conspiracy in the assassination. He was considered to be unreliable and was accused of trying to raise money by exploiting notoriety gained from the court process.
The siege aspect lay in King's agenda as his main concern at that time, was not the garbage workers in Memphis, but the organization of a Poor People's March on Washington for early April where thousands of disenfranchised Americans of all races would descend on the nation's capital and protest the country's economic divisiveness.The reference to duty men and guardians was also relevant on that night as detailed in later investigations into conspiracy theories surrounding the case.
The National Guard also took part in the story:
I obviously had an interest at this point as to why this connection between Luther-King and James Ray should have the connectivity already shown. It only makes sense if they are part of some larger perspective relevant to Nostradamus. There are several French towns mentioned in the verses but no coherence in the pattern. It was enough for me to continue the pursuit and to follow uon what happened to James Earl Ray and the controversy surrounding the murder and its aftermath.
A little more than two months after King's death, on June 8 1968, Ray, an escaped convict who had broken out of the Missouri State Penitentiary a year before the assassination, was captured at London's Heathrow Airport while trying to leave the United Kingdom on a false Canadian passport in the name of Ramon George Sneyd. He was desperate for money. He'd been involved in robberies in the UK and this was the reason for his voyage. Ray was charged with King's murder, confessing to the assassination on March 10, 1969, (though he recanted this confession three days later) and was sentenced to 99 years in prison. On the advice of his attorney Percy Foreman, Ray took a guilty plea to avoid a trial conviction and therefore the possibility of receiving the death penalty.
It was while exploring the above facts that I entered the name Ramon-George-Sneyd into my search program and found it existed as an anagram in Centuries VIII Quatrein 80 L.2. This line's visible text is "so many evils committed by means of the Great Red one" which seems pertinent to a murderer such as James Ray but it leaves a question, was James Earl Ray ever called the Great Red one? I can find nothing to suggest he was. The hidden text implies Ramon George Sneyd mandate, money fails as parts and this is an accurate reflection of what happened. Below is the full verse:
The first line tells of death befalling innocent people. The fate of the King family can easily be tied into this verse, especially that of his mother.
She was shot by Marcus Chenault, a twenty-one-year-old man from Ohio who claimed that "all Christians are my enemies." Alberta Williams King died later that day at the age of seventy-one.
The first line's visible text also implies murder and beneath it lies Grieve once designer greed avenged. This forms a reasonable basis for the following interpretation:
C8 Q80 anagrams
It implies James Ray is in England to deal with the designer of a scheme which is implied by the visible text to be acts of terrorism. It is possible that the name of the person met is also contained in the hidden text. However it is not clear whether this person is involved in the assassination or part of some other scheme.
The theme of this assassination carries through into other verses, adding more detail with each occurrence. The next verse is the only verse that has a complete anagram of Jowers (as Jouuers).
The visible text once more holds the story of the tragedies that beset the king family. The younger brother of Martin Luther King Jr was Alfred Daniel Williams King. In July of 1969 he was found drowned in the swimming pool of an Atlanta motel. His questionable death was designated as having no sign of foul play. However the hidden code implies the drowning may have been affected by chemicals sprayed into the pool. It is known that many suggestions were made by the FBI and others that Martin Luther King was a womaniser. No credible evidence of this behaviour exists and the reports might well be part of normal methods of discrediting an opponent. The visible text may imply either a hidden truth or simply refer to the nature of the allegations.
Jowers is an old English name, derived from son of Joel. It is a quite common name in America. Jowers is a most unreliable witness, who was in all probability an opportunistic liar. He claimed that Ray was a dupe, not the real assassin. However in his testimony he supported a claim by James Earl Ray that there was a leading conspirator called Raoul. Pertinently , he claims to have misheard the name Roual as Royal which appears in Nostradamus' text in this exact form. To me there is an appropriateness in this name being used by a secret agent since it reflects the nature of the royal task, the killing of a king. The hidden text reinforces these ideas.
C10 Q35 anagrams
In the hidden text of this verse several of the deaths are brought together, with the last line being that of Martin Luther King's brother and the others being about his own murder. There is a distinct switch in the verse which is consistent with the stories of both Ray and Jowers, since it implies these deaths have a European and Ancient world (Mid-earth) origin. This is consistent with other threads within Nostradamus' text that I have uncovered (see other papers). It is in this verse that we can begin to see that what might have interested Nostradamus in these killings is an international grouwith sinister aims impacting on the future. Of course I need far more evidence than this and that will emerge as these threads are pursued in this paper. (Note: Germain and Cyprian anagrams have a relevance that is developed later.)
My next analysis is of L.4 in Centuries 4 Quatrein 84. This is the only line of verse to contain the word Tennessee as a whole anagram. It also contains an anagram of nemesis, a word that occurs in 15 verses, one of which is part of the series I analysed earlier (See verse on Memphis , C10, Q79).
C4 Q84 L4
This is a clearly a dating mechanism and I began analysing it as I believed it had relevance to my current theme because it included anagrams for Tennessee, nemesis and sunset. It also has an anagram that could be Klan or Clan.
C4 Q84 L4 anagrams
I performed a search for the conjunction mentioned using a program called Redshift 2 (by Maris). The settings were for all conjunctions of Venus, Mars and Sun with less than 2 degrees separation over the period 1550CE to 2100CE. The results are shown for all ten such occurrences in the table below..
It is immediately apparent that the year that best fulfils the visible content of L.4 is 1968 as it is the closest conjunction and it occurs in summer. In that year the conjunction takes place in Taurus. A day later on the 21st of June 1968 all three have entered Gemini. There are only three dates which are less than 1 degree separation (1669, 1968 and 2026) and two of these occur in summer but June 20th, 1968 is the only one that marks the beginning of summer. I also checked and found there has been no closer conjunction of these stars for over 3,500 years.
When I performed this analysis I had expected it to fail any test of relevancy (i.e. not include 1968) but instead it hits the target fully in its centre with this date being the best application in man's recorded history.
In 1968, Martin Luther King was assassinated by James Earl Ray (early April). On June 5th 1968, Robert Kennedy was assassinated. On June 8th of the same year, James Ray was arrested at Heathrow airport. This was just over two months from the date of Martin Luther Kings assassination.
The hidden words in this same line clearly create a link to the death of Martin Luther King as it holds a unique anagram of Tennessee. It is possible it goes further as it suggests his nemesis was the Clan.
At this point I can go back to an unusual line of Nostradamus' text in the verse which talks specifically about Memphis and also has the word nemesis as an anagram. The unusual line "The great Mercury of Hercules fleur-de-lis," is full of symbolism. The fleur-de-lis is one of the two floral emblems of Tennessee. The great Mercury of Hercules implies the pillars of commerce, i.e. an important business organisation. There is a further insight into this organisation since the same verse (See Memphis , C10, Q79) also says "The old roads will all be improved, One will proceed on them to the modern Memphis". I stated at the beginning of this page that that I always accept that the meaning of Nostradamus' words, although cryptic, are meant to be understood. In this instance we now have enough connections to deduce that these lines refer to a member within an organisation based in Memphis, Tennessee that runs a road- building business.
As I presented my analysis of the earlier verses I deliberately refrained from explaining lines which seemed unrelated to the theme I was developing. This was not because they had no explanation but because they required an idea of where the theme led before they had any relevance.
Throughout the verses presented there has been a religious theme but it often has been more Roman Catholic in its imagery than that which would be consistent with the Protestant faith (Baptist) of which Martin Luther King was a pastor. Once again there is likely to be far more significance to this than I have so far set out. As this paper progresses this deliberate omission will also be rectified.
The current verse holding the hidden date of 1968 mentions a conjunction. It is itself a conjunction of threads, one of which leads to the resolution of this religious ambiguity.
C4 Q84 L4
The third line of Centuries VIII, Quatrein 80 presented earlier (see C8 Q080) has a connection to the saints in its visible text. The second line of Centuries X, Quatrein 35 (see C10 Q35) has a most unusual anagram sequence to which I have added the name Germain (as in the visible text). I did this because I was aware of the developing sequence of ideas connecting the lines to this current verse. Saint Germain emerges as the key to understanding the religious thread. This takes on meaning when Auxerre from the first line of this verse is included since Saint Germain or Germanus has his roots in Auxerre (see my paper on Religious references -St Germain for more detail.)
The reference to chains and cable refers to a method of dying and links this verse to the one containing the hidden anagram of Cyprian. (see my site on Religious References- St Cyprian for more details)
