Nostradamus on the 22ndC militant religious family
wars of the Barren Dame.
Preamble: In the first chart of the Sefirot
series I stated:
Nostradamus' work holds
many conundrums designed to limit access to the content of his
Prophecies. This is true to an extent where most people believe
his work is the deliberate shambles of a charlatan. Yet there is
direct evidence in his prose writings that show he had a
pre-thought plan which guided his work. His Preface to the first
batch of Prophecies published in 1552 clearly indicate that he
already knew the content that his Prophecies would cover. He
wasn't making it up as he went but took already recorded events
in what seems a random order and placed them in a new sequence
which he called his ten Centuries.
In order to keep control over his writings Nostradamus then needed a scheme
that would tell him which topics he had already covered and he
did this by relying on a coding device well known in the
sixteenth century. It is part of the Cabala but the reasons for
its use don't necessarily require that he believed in the
mystical principles at the heart of its source. He needed a
scheme that a person in a later time would be able to associate
with the time of his writing. The Tree of Life also known as the Sefirot, Sephirot or Sephiroth was such a device. It is probable
that he drew up charts based on these trees in which he placed
ten verses and then used the ciphers traditionally linked to the
ten spheres of the tree to guide the content wording and
lettering in each verse.

Aim of this presentation
This paper present the first of my Sephirot Charts of
Ciphers covering Barren Lady's family's
involvement in the religious wars that take place later in this
century. It takes its ciphers from common usage in the text that
are also found in the relevant parts of the 1558 Epistle. In
addition it brings together verses containing anagrams for
family lineage and genetic terms such as alleles.
Extracts from the Epistle where these major ciphers appear are included at the
top of the chart.
It is only when these ciphers are in place that the terminology in their text
can be explained since frequent references to mountain wars
become more relevant in a world where land as we know it has
been transferred by massive floods. And it is this concept that
gives relevance to a repeated theme that is meaningless in the
world in which we and Nostradamus live. The kingdom, region or
lands of the balance are a good description for distinguishing
them from the lands drowned by floods. And by their inclusion it
provides a dating around the end of the century and beyond.
Other charts in this series on the warrior-priest family at the heart of
Nostradamus' work include

two quarrelling brothers. .
This chart has strong connections to the Chart on the
