Nostradamus' Sephirots for the analysis of future wars.
Allan Webber April 2018.

Preamble: In the first chart of this 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 keecontrol 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 page offers access to each of the  Sefirot Chart of Ciphers in my new war series. It also covers the wider paradigms Nostradamus used in discussing human wars in the present and near future.

It is my belief Nostradamus' interest in war is in its evolution.

In the modern era we have come to understand that our universe's evolution involves a set of logical sequences which change that which exists to better fit the extant environment. And the primary logical sequence in this patterning is one that mimics the physical evolution of matter in space; it uses the eternal patterns found in numbers as a template for shaping everything it does.

There is also a set of prominent sequences in all evolutionary processes comprised of those that bestow the ability to survive change.
And this type of sequence holds the keys to the anguish of humankind but it isn't capable of bestowing immortality since the environment it fits will also evolve meaning everything has a shelf life.

And one product of this anguish, almost unique to our kind, is the concept of war.

War is a product of human evolution with properties different to those positive enhancement modes such as cooperation and care for others that also offer increased survival prospects.

In mankind war has been founded in the dilemmas and environment of economics and power and hence has evolved into a niche of its own making.
The anthropocentric nature of man has then seen war become an entity focusing mostly on the fears of the living.

But the historians and propagandists images of war are of little concern to Nostradamus; his work is not about battles, heroes and villains.
Nostradamus' concern is not for the rationale nor the flow of events that lead humankind into war for these, for all their quantity, are petty examples of the eternal human problem.

Nostradamus' prophecies show his interest is in the philosophy and psychology of humans as they are placed under increasing pressure from their inbuilt evolutionary flaw. His interest lies in the shifting net that man's technological ingenuity has created; an inevitable path of brilliant flowering followed by what will appear to our race to be our self inflicted demise.

This theme forms the backdrop for many of his war verses. Verse C4 Q43 shown below is a good example:

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.
Seront 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.
Vn Empereur 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

To uncover Nostradamus' story lines things we need to look for are references to:
- 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
