Nostradamus' Sephirots for the analysis of
|Arms heard clashing in the sky
That very same year the divine ones enemies
They will want unjustly to debate the holy laws:
Through lightning and war the believers put to death.
ouys au ciel les armes batter
Celuy au meSme les diuins ennemis
Voudront loix Sainctes iniuStement debatre
Par foudre et guerre bien croyans a mort mis.
This is a fundamental change in the treatment of war to that normally ascribed to Nostradamus' Prophecies and it shifts all the signals that are needed to rediscover which of his verses are connected.
We aren't looking for names of places and combatants in particular wars nor are we looking for specific events in the historical record; rather we are looking for commentary on the art of war and in particular those aspects that differ from values in the sixteenth century.
This isn't to say that Nostradamus work avoids battles and heroes but rather that his use of them isn't based on the usual logic for such stories.
His usage is designed to reflect aspects of future war that is consistent with evolution of humankind and of human instigated war. His stories tell us about immutable grouissues that shape future wars. At times individual people and events can highlight a theme but their details and particulars aren't part of the package as they aren't the reason for Nostradamus' inclusion.
This theme of mankind's ultimate denial of responsibility for future wars is readily seen in verses such as C1 Q91.
|The Gods will make it appear to mankind
that they are the authors of a great war.
Before the sky seen to be free of weapons and spears
the greatest damage will be inflicted on the left.
Les dieux feront aux humains apparence
Ce qu'ilz ſeront auteurs de grand conflict
Auant ciel veu ſerein eſpee et lance
Que vers main guache ſera plus grand afflict
Similarly verse C1 Q60 presents the story of Napeolean Bonaparte as a framework for flawed genocidal leadershiin the modern Iraq war era.
|An Emperor will
be born near Italy,
who will cost the Empire very dearly.
They will say, when they see his allies,
that he is less a prince than a butcher.
naiſtr apres d'italie (partisan details)
Qui a l'empire ſera vendu bien cher (Iraqu)
Diront auec quels gens il ſeralie (Israel)
Quont rouuera moins prince que boucher
Nostradamus' story lines things we need to look for are
- weapon technology particularly of a modernistic nature.
- attitudinal changes that are themselves modern.
- institutional practices that render modern wars horrors acceptable to the elite.
- counter-reactions that evolve out of the above factors.
And these ideas of mine can be found in Nostradamus' writings. For instance his comments on the rationale behind his work is covered in his the preface of his edition published in 1555.
The world is approaching, an anaragonic revolution [2105 precession of Polestar] and from the present I write here that before a hundred and seventy seven years three months plus eleven days [2282CE] there will be pestilence, long famine, and wars. And by worldwide floods between here and the term I have fore-stated, and before and after it by several times, will [the world] be so diminished, and so few people will there be found that want to take to the fields which will become free for as long as their prior owners have held them..Cesar Preface PCE9
