UPDATE: 4 December 2009
As I mention in my 2008 Website Introduction, much of my book, The Age of Desolation, was written before I became aware of Predictive Linguistics
through George Ure's website at Urbansurvival.com. I immediately contacted him about many similarities between the way I interpreted the prophecies
of Nostradamus and Edgar Cayce, to those predictions made by Cliff High at Halfpasthuman.com using proprietary linguistics algorithms that
parse the internet looking for changes in language.
The following is taken from my 2008 Website Introduction:
The second prediction from Halfpasthuman.com that George Ure published at Urban Survival was "Energies from Space."
After reading this, I saw the similarities to Nostradamus' prediction of "Fire from space". So, I asked the following question: Will the Chinese
attack the Group of Seven nations after laser and electromagnetic weapons used by the West destroy Chinese cities? Here are the excerpts from my book
that warn about attacking China.
Fire from space from the Western side,
From the mid heaven, running to the East,
Worms have dead without finding a root.
Third Age of Mars the warlike,
One will see fires shining from the Carbuncles,
The age of the Carbuncle will bring famine in the end.
The "Nostradamus Experts" do not believe that Nostradamus authored the Sixains, and I counter with the prediction above.
The "Third Age of Mars" appears several times in the Quatrains and Sixains. It is an obvious reference to World War III, as the first two ages of
the god of war were surely World War I and World War II.
"Fires shining from the Carbuncles" is a reference to laser weaponry. Interestingly enough, a carbuncle is anyone of the scarlet and crimson varieties
of garnet where the stone is cut with a convex face. There is an ancient legend that Noah used such stones to illuminate the ark ( The American Educator
Encyclopedia, Vol.3, (1956), pg. 702).
Nostradamus Quatrain V-81
The royal bird [Eagle] over the city of the sun [Rome, Italy]
Seven months in advance it delivers a nocturnal omen:
The wall of the Orient [China] will fall lightning and thunder,
Seven Days the enemies directly to the gates.
On May 15th, 2008 an earthquake measuring 7.9 on the Richter scale struck Sichuan Province in China and killed nearly seventy thousand people. There were
reports of anomalous colored lights seen in the sky and photographed just prior to the Earthquake.
There were also several well-known Internet postings about electromagnetic weapons being used to create the earthquake, and placing the responsibility clearly
on the United States and Europe.
I never would have asked that question at that particular time if I had not read that Predictive Linguistics was pointing to an earthquake
in China in the near-future. This was a lot more precise than a five hundred year old poem.
For me, Predictive Linguistics seemed to be a Real Time method for connecting my library full of predictions from hundreds of worldwide prophetic sources that I have
categorized but could only partially date.
For those readers who have heard about Predictive Linguistics, the smartest among us know that the web bots did not miss a thing on October 25th. Some people
are looking for the instantaneous switch from day to night, but the universe is sometimes very subtle. All prophecies begin with the first flutter of that
butterfly's wings on the other side of the world. People only recognize the hurricane.
I know Cliff High and George Ure might be seeing their share of detractors and threats, but the history for messengers
has never been easy. Certainly, walking on the razor's edge of the mysterious can lead a person right to the Inquisition.
All Biblical and extracanonical prophecy is nearly impossible to place. Most of Edgar Cayce's prophecies for global change have apparently seemed to pass, and
Nostradamus' prophecies seem to be locked into a code that some claim to have deciphered, and that includes me, but which remains to be proven.
REFERENCE FRAMES AND NICHES IN TIME
My shining example for interpreting prophecy is found in Nostradamus' Epistle to Henri.
Nostradamus Epistle: Paragraph 13:2
But she being in peril, [as] she who is adjoined by the temerity of the era being in peril of death in her eighteenth [year], and
will be unable to live beyond her thirty-sixth [year].
July 10, 1509 - May 27, 1564
Calvinism took hold in France in 1562 after the Massacre at Wassy.
It struggled for eighteen years until Henri III of Navarre and the Huguenots captured the city of Cahors in 1580.
Near death, the Huguenot cause was revived and Henri of Navarre became Henri IV, King of France.
Henri IV of France
December 13, 1553 - May 1610
In 1598, Henri IV signed the Edict of Nantes. Thirty-six years after the Massacre at Wassy, the Calvinists thought that they had won their freedom.
But following in the long tradition of politicians with malleable convictions, the Huguenot Henri III of Navarre became the Catholic Henri IV, King of France.
His conversion from Calvinism to Catholicism consolidated his power. Queen, Elizabeth I also used the Protestant Reformation to solidify her power after
the bloody reign of her Catholic half-sister,Mary I, but she went the other way.
Once Henri IV signed the Edict of Nantes, Calvinism went on life support for the next eighty-seven years.
Now these dates add up with historical events, but Nostradamus' metaphors will always have that element of ambiguity.
As I have said in the Introduction to my book, interpreting Nostradamus' prophecies is always easier in the post analysis of some tragic age in history,
like the French Revolution or both World Wars. They are big and bright events that are easy to spot once they start.
Some of these ages, like
France's Wars of Religion
can last well outside of the lifetime of an individual. As you can see from the Wikipedia entry, the
recognized time boundary for the war extends from 1562 to 1598, but, as I mentioned above, the reverberations from the wars lasted well into the 18th century.
So, Nostradamus knew that he would have his detractors, because no human being would live long enough to see him get it right.
Consider three frames of reference spanning nearly a hundred years:
In 1562, in Reference Frame One, I interpret a prediction made by Nostradamus as the Protestant Reformation will be violently crushed in France and disappear.
After the Massacre at Wassy and the St. Bartholomew's Day massacre, current events prove that I seem to have interpreted Nostradamus correctly.
But in 1598, in Reference Frame Two, someone else can correctly make the criticism that the 1562 interpretation of Nostradamus was wildly off the mark, because
a former Protestant, Henri III of Navarre, won the throne of France and signed the Edict of Nantes.
Critics had their chance, however, to see what was coming. In 1610, Henri IV was assassinated and the persecution of Calvinists ramped up until
the revocation of the Edict of Nantes by Louis XIV eight-seven years after the Huguenots believed that Henri IV had led them to freedom.
Seventy-five years of more sectarian violence should have thinned the herd of those critics who believed Nostradamus got it wrong.
Of course, in 1685, in Reference Frame Three, after Louis XIV finally reversed the Edict of Nantes, the critics were forced into silence when
the Protestant Reformation was crushed in France and Nostradamus was proven right after all.
Here is another metaphor with dates that sum perfectly.
Nostradamus Epistle: Paragraph 24:1
And this will be preceded by a solar eclipse more obscure and dark, than any
since the creation of the world, except that after the death and passion of
And in the month of October a great movement and translation will be made and
it will be such that one will think the earth has lost its natural movement
and that it is to be plunged into the abyss of perpetual darkness.
Nostradamus Epistle: Paragraph 25:1
In the spring there will be the first omens, and thereafter in rapid
succession, extreme changes, permutations of realms and mighty earthquakes.
Nostradamus Epistle: Paragraph 25:2
With the increase of the new Babylon, miserable daughter, augmented by the
abomination of the first holocaust.
Nostradamus Epistle: Paragraph 25:3
It will last for only seventy-three years and seven months.
On May 13th 1917 three Shepard children reported seeing and talking with the “Lady of the Rosary”, a young,
beautiful woman in the sky near the village of Fatima in Portugal. She promised a miracle that would stun the world.
Five months later, on October 13th, 1917, over seventy thousand people attended that miracle. Witnesses reported that the Sun
seemed to disappear then reappear and begin dancing about the sky. All the while, the “Lady of the Rosary” quietly revealed
to the children three prophecies that would unfold in the future.
After twenty-four days had passed, Soviet Russia came into existence when on November 7th 1917, the Congress of Soviets assumed power.
Whether there is significance in the number of days between the Fatima predictions and the Soviets coming to power will always remain unknown,
but in Revelation 4:4, John of Patmos recorded that he saw twenty-four elders seated around a rainbow throne.
As Nostradamus predicted, the first signs did appear in the spring. In March 1918 Soviet Russia signed a treaty ending its participation in World War I; that same month
it made Moscow its capital.
Many realms did change and become part of the Soviet Empire after World War II. The Soviet conquests over the Nazis, who were engineers of the "first holocaust"
enlarged their empire by expanding into Eastern Europe.
Like Babylon, the conqueror of Israel, the Soviet Empire was known for the persecution of its Jewish population. And as I cover in Chapter Twenty Two, the Soviets
did develop a new technology and weapon system that can cause mighty earthquakes.
Exactly as Nostradamus predicted, seventy-three years and seven months after the Soviet Congress took power, on June 12th 1991,
Boris Yeltsin was elected the first President of Russia.
These are just a few examples with an exact match to the historical record, but how many people will buy that I have interpreted Nostradamus' metaphors correctly?
That is what I meant when I wrote in my notes on the Timeline of Nostradamus that we are all prisoners of our own little niches in time.
Try this one on for size. This quatrain was notorious before September 11th, 2001; it has now gained greater notoriety.
Nostradamus Quatrain X-72
The year 1999, in July,
From the sky will come a great King of Terror:
Resuscitating the great King of the Mongols.
Before and after Mars [War] reigns with good luck.
I believe it does relate to the Pentagon and World Trade Center attacks. In Chapter Ten, I note that some interesting and powerful people were coming together
in June and July of 1999. If you are familiar with Chaos Theory, perhaps this dates that first flutter of the butterfly's wings when
conspiracy became inevitability.
You might think that Nostradamus was writing for future historians, but his warnings were meant to be taken by the common man and woman.
Nostradamus Preface: Paragraph 7
Thou hast hidden these things from the wise and prudent, that is from the powerful and from kings, and hast revealed them to the small and the weak
Matthew 11:25 (King James)
…Thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes
Nostradamus Preface Paragraph 4
For how long a time and how often, have I predicted what has come to pass… I was willing to keep silent
and refrain from writing by reason of injury, and not only to the present time, but also for the future time as well.
Nostradamus Preface Paragraph 5
Because kingdoms sects and religions will make changes so complete,
truly diametrically opposite to the present view, that if I came to reveal
what will happen in the future, those kingdoms, sects, religions, and faiths would find
it so little in accord with their fantasies that they will damn that which future centuries
will know and perceive to be true.
Also consider what the true Savior said, Give not that
which is holy unto dogs, nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their
feet and turn and rend you. This is why I decided to withhold my tongue from the common people, and pen from paper.
Nostradamus Preface Paragraph 6
Later, foreseeing the advent of commoners, I decided to give way and,
by dark and cryptic sentences, tell of the causes of the future mutation of
mankind, especially the most urgent ones, and the ones I perceived, without scandalizing their fragile sentiments.
All had to be written under a nebulous figure, above all things prophetic...
Here is a five hundred year old advertisement for supporting the public school system. In Nostradamus' time,
only those people who could afford an education received one. It seems that initially Nostradamus saw the futility
of writing down his prophecies to a largely uneducated population. At some point in his life he seems to have had an epiphany;
his foresight allowed him to see that many common men and women in the future would not only be educated, but technically proficient.
It of course, also means that he felt he could make a difference. You will have to read the Introduction of my book for a better understanding
of how I measure fate. Prophecy does not work without it. Free will gives you the option of how close you want to tack to the wake of history.
THE NEXT EVOLUTIONARY CHANGE
Now, in all practicality most people will see any coincidences between current events and any web bot predictions, or those predictions made by Edgar Cayce and
Nostradamus just as that, coincidences.
Perhaps the ability for some humans to accept the unconventional will be seen in the future as the kind of species mutation Darwin hypothesized
about that gives survivors of mass extinction epochs a leg up over their genetically challenged brethren.
Recently, I started to examine the statistics for this website and the websites found on my Suggested Morning Reading List. The few hundred thousand
who pass through these sites seem to be a drop in the global ocean of hundreds of millions of tech savvy humans.
People do not have time for Conspiracy Theories, and the few tin-foil hatters who matter have been relatively neutered, easily controlled by disinformation
and images projected through that "wilderness of mirrors". It would take something significant to shake-up the current paradigm.
A case in point is Dr. Steven Greer and his Disclosure Project, a formidable and credible organization lobbying the United States' government
and military to end UFO secrecy. Insiders informed him that on November 27, 2009 President Obama was supposed to disclose the reality of
extraterrestrial life and UFOs.
The Disclosure Project
In conjunction with this we had the meeting at the Vatican to discuss the possibility of extraterrestrial life.
Catholic News Service: Nov-10-2009
Vatican-sponsored meeting discusses chances of extraterrestrial life...
Since November 27, 2009 has come and gone, it is clear that this was another
to discredit Dr. Greer's hard work.
THE UNCONVENTIONAL LAWS OF QUANTUM PHYSICS
Big life decisions are tricky business when relying on unconventional sources. Noah was one of the first to find that out.
Long before Predictive Linguistics became the latest method for divining the future, I became convinced that nature has provided all humans
with the ability to be transducers of time. Whether it may be the unrecognized intuitive hunches that we all use to guide ourselves through our mundane
days or through the use and construction of elaborate systems, we humans continually sound the depths of time just as some marine creatures might sound
the depths of the ocean in which they swim.
With the repairs to the Large Hadron Collider at CERN completed, physicists have begun the search for the Higgs Boson, perhaps the key to understanding gravitation.
The Higg's Boson is not called the God Particle by physicists without good cause.
Recently, several reputable physicists have suggested that the bad luck that had crippled the world's largest particle collider for the last year might not
be related to anything superstitious, but rather it is sabotage from the future.
The Sunday Times: Jonathan Leake: October 18, 2009
A particle God doesn't want us to discover: Could the
Large Hadron Collider be sabotaging itself from the future...
Newscientist: Richard Webb, physics features editor: October 13, 2009 5:55 PM
Time-travelling Higgs sabotages the LHC. No, really:
What all the skeptics of prophecy and psychic phenomena forget is that the material world that has been constructed by human beings
was first designed by engineers who depend on the laws of physics, and those very same laws allow present day theoretical physicists
to speculate on the bidirectional nature of time.
In fact, it is only theoretical physicists that are allowed to make such wild speculations without fear of ridicule. Without the pedigree,
the rest of us are tin foil hatters.
When nature does not provide the physiological or the psychological components to create an Old Testament Prophet, it seems that the human intellect can
meet the challenge. It can engineer software like the web bots that harvest Internet chatter to help make predictions of the future, or it can design hardware
like the global network of electronic Random Number Generators that appears to react to changes in human mass consciousness, apparently the ultimate barometer
of future events.
The Global Consciousness Project Meaningful Correlations in Random Data
Systems like these, however, are part of the new paradigm, which links quantum physics and consciousness, and this part of the universal equation
ultimately leads to the spiritual and the religious.
In the 19th century, physics was known as Natural Philosophy. In the last hundred years, so many layers have been added to the simple, foundational laws set
down by Pythagoras, Galileo and Newton, that humans have forgotten the connection to nature.
But now quantum physics and the mysteries behind wave and particle duality have generated numerous theories that posit advanced waves and retarded waves, or
time forward waves and time reversed waves in a broad effort to explain just why an electron decides to "pop in" to any particular location after it collapses from
its wave state.
All of these theories lead back to an ill-defined state some people describe as a superposition of states, and that leads to speculations of multiple dimensions,
parallel dimensions, spiritual dimensions; you can pick your theory, but in western culture it was the 19th century scientists and spiritualists who got there
first and they called it the ethereal.
Even now, conventional conjecture of an Energetic Vacuum filled with Virtual Particles seems to have revived the forgotten
theories of the Ether.
Edgar Cayce predicted that one day humans would be able to tap into the ethereal or into that dimension he called the "skein between space and time".
Edgar Cayce Reading 443-5
Question: Akashic Records are recorded on the ether. Then cannot an instrument be invented to induct ether and thus tap in on the Akashic Records?
Answer: …This may be done - eventually will be!
Edgar Cayce Reading 540-4
As we find here, in giving these descriptions, these are as those that made impressions - as it were - upon the skein of time and space.
Edgar Cayce Reading 688-2
Such records of every entity are upon the skein between time and space.
Edgar Cayce Reading 391-4
...We are co-laborers, co-creators with that Energy we call God.
A true Unified Theory would explain how the "I" part of the universe fits into the "We" part of the universe.
At first glance, a determinable future implies that fatalism is the operative philosophy at work in the universe.
For independent minded people, this is an anathema.
But I suggest to you that time has a topographical structure, where events have a certain elevation and range.
Conflict, economic cycles, the rise and fall of civilizations, they are probably as eternal as the mountains that rise
up out of the seas and forests that grow up out of deserts.
Humans navigate time constantly. Many people saw World War II on the horizon and fled Europe to the safety of the United States, and
that is but one example of countless examples of people who made life and death decisions by anticipating future events.
Was their particular vision of the future an extrapolation made from current events or was it intuition? Who knows why some of us decide
not to get on that doomed airplane?
Many of us are good at reading the landscape. Some hills and mountains we can steer around, and some mountain ranges we have to engineer our
way across. So, a good mapping system provides us with the safest and most efficient route. This is why I value Predictive Linguistics.
It is just the latest technology that I have put in my tool kit to get me from today to tomorrow.
UPDATE: 28 December 2009
A few weeks after my last Update of October 4th, I had pretty much decided to call it quits with getting the book onto the site and continuing these updates.
As you can see from that update, I was correct in interpreting Nostradamus' warning that a "False Trumpet Concealing Madness"
coming from Istanbul involved the devaluing of currencies in relation to gold and silver.
Gold's two hundred dollar rise in the following weeks was an indicator that there were secret motives behind the International Monetary
Fund meeting in Istanbul on October 3, 2009. Apparently, the plug has been pulled on the United States dollar.
Nostradamus paints a very dark picture of the global economic collapse that will ensue once the dollar's global reserve status is abandoned in full.
Systemic collapse will not be pretty, and I was going to post Chapter Eleven: The Epistle: The Global Economic Collapse,
in full, but I have not touched it since 2007. So much has happened in the last three years that fulfills even more of the predictions
that Nostradamus and Edgar Cayce made, that a rereading began to generate some real anxiety in me. I thought,
"Why am I wasting time on this. I've got too much to do."
George Ure's link from Urbansurvival.com back in September generated far more traffic at this site than I had ever anticipated.
I was initially excited about having the readership of a small city. The website traffic has already exceeded the numbers of a first printing
had my manuscript been picked up by a publisher.
But I have been living with doom and gloom for so long that my intellectual construction of it based on my research was giving way to the actual
observation of doom and gloom as it popped over the horizon.
I struggled through the rest of the October Updates, but then wrote them into the November Updates as the month slipped by. As you can read, the
Ukrainian Plague has serious implications relating to the plague that Nostradamus predicted and it is certainly connected to the UFO phenomenon.
Eventually, however, I decided not to post anything.
Some very nice people wrote to say that they were fans and asked when I would begin writing updates again. That was certainly an incentive to keep
going. I wrote back to thank them and assured them that I would get back to it soon.
But unfortunately, I am well over the idea of selling my book because it is pretty close to too late. So, I let the website slip away from me and I surrendered
to my long list of chores.
As I wrote above a few weeks ago, the Predictive Linguistics' date of October 25, 2009 that pointed to an emotional change of state was right on the mark.
President Obama did declare a National Emergency over the H1N1 Epidemic the previous day.
Perhaps the reaction Cliff and George received gave me second thoughts, as I said above, historically messengers have never fared well. But frankly, I do not
consider myself a messenger. I have been out here for three years hawking doom and gloom looking to make a buck.
I know that some people will have to struggle with the new paradigm, but it is here. It arrived officially on December 9, 2009, the night before the War President received
his Nobel Peace Prize with a startling demonstration of a new weapon system in the sky over Norway.
After weeks of ignoring the website, I was content with my decision to move on. But when I read about the threats that George and Cliff were receiving, I felt
compelled to write the December 4th Update.
You see, I have not lost a penny from my 401K. I wisely used my own research and that of George and Cliff to get out of the stock market at the perfect time.
If I had disposable income, I probably would have made some bets, but I am happy that I have not lost anything, for now anyway.
I am sure that George and Cliff's detractors are the fools that are making side bets on the Apocalypse, and perhaps they have lost some money.
I wrote George back in 2008 and told him to stop worrying about being labeled as a "tin-foil hatter". When you ride in the curl of a new paradigm, watch out.
So, while I was writing that December 4th Update, I decided to remodel the entire website. I had not bothered to even check the site traffic statistics, but when I did,
I saw that my readership of thousands per day had dwindled to a steady hundred, so my thanks to all of you who still kept checking.
Actually, providing at least a bi-monthly update to the site will allow me to bring my manuscript up to date, because it began its trek to publishers and literary agents
back in January 2007.
I decided to bring the book to the site out of a rivalry with the commercially successful commentators on Nostradamus like John Hogue, Erika Cheetham, and
Jean Charles de Fontbrune. I have been helped by much of their work, but why they have not caught up with times is beyond me.
I have had publishers say great things about the manuscript, but it is always marketing, marketing, marketing...
Perhaps it will only get harder to get the word out.
Anyway, I jumped back into updating the site and trying to keep up with the news. At times I questioned my own sanity about devoting so much time to it,
because it is a real time killer. But my decision to trek on with the site was followed within days by the Norway Light Spiral.
If you have read my 2008 Website Introduction, then you know that I was anticipating the introduction of a new weapon system. I have made that statement
part of my Home Page.
Some recent revelations have really taken the rewriting of my book in unintended direction.
This update has straddled December and the first week of January, so I have decided to split it right here,
even though a large portion of what I started in the January 8, 2010 Update was begun just after Christmas.
Only today, January 7, 2010, did I piece together the famous Nostradamus' anagram, SAMAROBRYN.
